Great selection of finds Sandra.

Ruth Kitchen (Ken Smith) I know quite well but I didn't realize Ruth was a Kitchen.  We were away when she died.  Son Wayne I see all the time. 

I also know an Erle Kitchen and wonder if he is one of Ward Erland's descendants as the spelling is rather unusual.  This lot were in Norfolk, St. George (north of Brantford) and Oxford County.  I will ask about his connection the next time I see him and send a PM to the posts. 

Norfolk County Archives have a huge collection which you can access here

They are very helpful when comes to family history.

Good morning,

I do know there are some Kitchen family members still residing in Port Dover - I attended university with one of them many years ago and as far as I know he is still living there. Have you tried using Canada411 site to connect with Kitchen family members there?

Thank you - valid suggestion.
First of all I am located in Phuket, Thailand, expense and time difference has ruled this out though in practice.
I have been trying to contact the living for eight years now, first of all on my own Tree, then my half sister's.
Cold calling is not easy, a skill or an art, let's put it this way, I'm still working on it.

Good evening,

I know cold calling can be hard. Perhaps you can contact the public library there and get an email addy and then contact that way. If you google the kitchen name and place, there are some obits that come up showing names that may be useful in your search.
