This list would over lap to some degree and totals over 3200 pages. Thus you can see why it is on a CD. The above number of pages does not include the files in the Family Notes Folder, which could add up to as many pages again or more.

Questionnaires -- There are more than 220 completed questionnaires  in pdf or jpg format included in family Notes Folder in the Questionnaire Folder, from members of the Glengarry Genealogical Society  which were done in the 1970's & 1980's amounting from 1 or 2 pages per member to over 12 completed questionnaires per member. The information from many of these completed questionnaires has been incorporated into the record/work done in the MacDonalds of Loup, Lundie & Fraser connections. There is still more to come
