Hi,

Not sure how you're making out with this research, but the Canadian Penitentary Museum in Kingston has a lot of good links on their web page:

Hi Karen,

I don't know if you will get this but I am writing about the murder of Amelia Blythe and I was wondering if you would be willing to share her geneology and any family stories you might know about her with me?

Hi Katharine56

Welcome to RootsChat

Karenen has not been back on line since 2010 and the original poster has not been back since January 2013 which is a shame.  It could be they have there notifications of topics are turned off.

Thanks. I am not sure how to send you my email. I teach at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada. My first name is Katharine and my last is Kelly. You can find my email address through the University website but the general format is firstname.lastname@carleton.ca

I would like to know a bit about Amelia's family background and her education. The information I have found so far indicates that she was a teacher before she came to Canada.

The St. Lawrence Parks Commission has been running tours of the Kingston Pen.  They have been very popular.  Looks like the tours stop on Oct 29
