Blog Update October 2019

Brimstone Head, Fogo Island, NFLD

It’s been over four months since my last post and so an update is long overdue. For the most part I stuck close to home, busy working with research clients and enjoying the summer, although last month I did venture to the edge of the earth during my first extended holiday in more than three years.

My girlfriend and I enjoyed our second trip to Newfoundland and also spent ten days in Quebec enjoying the wonderful weather and fall colours. While in St. John’s I visited the Crow’s Nest Officers Club and I will be posting a follow-up article on the German U-boat that my grandfather photographed in 1945. I’m also considering two additional articles, one on HMCS Spikenard and another on researching my family from Quebec City. The latter might prove helpful to those of you planning to include some family research in your travels. At the bottom of this article I’ve included a handful of other photos from my recent trip.

This year there has been a sharp increase in the number of people requesting research on Second World War veterans. If you’re hoping to learn more about a soldier’s experience, or any aspect of your family history, please take a moment to check out my research service. The cost is often less than a tank of gas and the research can be tailored to meet your specific needs. Best of all the stories of their experiences can be passed down to future generations.

Last but not least, in June I promised an article on George Skakel, the nephew of Marc Edward Berton. This is largely written and it will be published however I’m holding off until I receive some updated photographs.
