? Our Family History

Family History

From Ireland's western shores to the shores of the Great Lakes, from Sweden's lakeshores to the rolling prairies of North America, from the farmlands of Flanders to the prairie flowers of North Dakota, they all converged at the heartland of Canada's breadbasket - Saskatchewan; these are the origins and legacies of my family.

New Additions

I have added many pages of information on our ancestors, including the Olson and Matsdotter lines and the maternal ancestors of Marta Persdotter, the mother of Hilma Christina Logstrom Olson (my grandmother). These are included in the Olsons and Logstroms pages.

These ancestors go back to the 1500s.

Family History

I've created this website as a legacy for my family. I've always had an intense interest in history and genealogy, and by creating these pages I hope to be able to make my research accessible to family far and wide so they can learn about the rich culture and history that we all come from.

I have also written a novella about the first of our ancestors in Canada - Antonei Farly and Marie Bastien. I have also completed a second novella about Antonie's and Marie's son, Jacques Philippes Farly and his wife, Josette Dumouchel. They were very adventurous people and lived in interesting times. Both of these can be found in the Stories section.

I hope you enjoy your journey through My Family History and for those distant family members, I sincerely hope my research can assist you in your research.
