Greetings
Gravestones of Glengarry Series

May you all have a save & enjoyable summer.

Although there has not been much action on my Glengarry County website as far as updates go, behind the scenes, there has been some steady activity.

1-- I have been for most of this year, bit by bit proofreading the Master Index of the Gravestones Glengarry Series of 14 volumes of over 43,000 entries. The index is under a 12 headings. Making corrections on glitches, typos and doing some more fine tuning. I am almost done. As a result each index for each volume had been fine tuned with typos and glitches corrected.  There will also be a location index made, on the names so listed if all goes well. Not all names have a location designation [ lot & concession, town, ] listed. A printed copy on an 8.5" x 11" back to back will be in the range of 850 pages at about a 80% ratio, and subject to finalization results. The end result will be in pdf format on a CD.

2-- The MacDonalds of Loup, Lundie & Fraser Connections work has also grown and has more than 33,000 entries and much documentation--- obits, BMD, gravestone inscriptions.

If this work was printed out, it would be just under 2,400 pages in a family history report without any formatting. Also there is included with this work, the FAMILY NOTES of over 3 gigs of background information, including more than 220 questionnaires completed to various degrees from members of The GGS. These were done in the 1980's.

To see a list of some the various family surnames that show up in this work check out  http://glengarrycounty.com/loupv4index.html  This includes 18 branches/groups of MacDonalds/MacDonells.

3-- Since last fall I have been dealing with a health challenge that zapped my energy.  I had a lot of tests at the local hospital, St Joseph's in Comox, BC which turned out pretty normal, nothing serious, my energy and stamina are coming back slowly & surely

4-- We are now in our 44th year of this journey which has resulted in over 32,000 pages of material being published in either book or CD form  check it out here  http://whatsnew-alexwfraser.blogspot.ca/2014/12/whats-new-update-glengarrycountycom.html
