Subject: [Q-R] Mathew Johnston / Mary McCombs
Date: Sat, 23 Feb 2008 13:12:08 -0800
Am trying to find information on this family. Is there anyone out there who
could provide a little help. I have not been able to find much during my
own research, and could really use a little help. This is not for me, it is
for a friend of mine. I have been able to find a few parish records from
the Church of England... they were protestants, but not much else.
Thank you in advance to anyone who responds to my request for assistance.

1. When did they arrive in Canada?
