Getting Started

I am endeavoring to put flesh and bones onto the names of my family tree and hope to post some interesting stories about ancestors and their descendants.

There are over 10,000 names in my database, with 7,600 on the Butchart side alone. I have been concentrating on the Davies and Crockett side recently and thank my Dad's sister, Ev, for sharing her memories with me.


  1. Joan - Did any of your Butchart family come to the Owen Sound area of Ontario? It is a well known name here.

  2. The Owen Sound Butcharts come from the same area of Scotland but I have not found a connection. Robert Pim Butchart, the founder of Butchart Gardens in Victoria, came from Owen Sound. I would love to be able to say I'm related to them.

  3. I have been to the gardens, they are very nice. Hope to go to Victoria on the 20th of Sept.
