By the time this edition of Heritage Seekers reaches you we will all be doing our research in the last century ó or do we have one more year before we move into the 21st century? I am eternally confused by that particular date. Regardless of what year we are in, I wish you all the very best for the year 2000, successful searches and continuing connections!
Our Grande Prairie raffle was a resounding success. With help from a lot of members our tickets were all sold out. The quilt remains in Grande Prairie with the first place winner and the miniature went to a lucky second place winner in Fairview. Having the quilt with us when we were selling tickets at a table in a store made selling an easy task as the quilt sold itself. The other "aid to selling" was to give each person selling tickets to friends and colleagues a photograph of the prize. In January we will turn our energies to selling tickets for the AGS cash raffle.
A group of members have been meeting to develop two Beginning Genealogy Courses. The first one is to be given as part of the Continuing Education program at the Grande Prairie Regional College. The second session is to be offered during the Elderhostel Program, which is being offered in Grande Prairie in the summer of 2000.
At the AGS meeting in November Laura Turnbull made an in-depth presentation regarding the update/expansion of our AGS website. This was very well received and we look forward to the future development of the website, allowing us to share some of our Alberta research with others around the world and to update members and the public on current activities and projects.
Elections are upon us, again! Where does time go? I have enjoyed my first year as president, in part because of the enthusiastic members with whom I work, but also because it has got me back-in-the-swing of my own research. I encourage all of you to let your name stand for an executive position or to become part of one of our subcommittees. Thanks go out to Hugh Impey who has agreed to fill our vacant Cemetery Recording position.
I will end as I began by wishing you all the very best for 2000!
As I write this, the holiday season is fast approaching, and with it the end of the year. This time, we not only celebrate the end to the year, but an end to the decade, the century, and millennium. What an exciting time to be alive!
As we approach this great milestone of time, I reflect on all those that lived in the past and are still alive in me today. Although I cannot take my research back a thousand years, I do feel that a part of what I am today was there when 999 turned into 1000. Through this wonderful hobby we share, I have learned to know my ancestors. They were hard working folk. They struggled for survival in times much different from today. Change, however, has given us growth. When I think of all that my family has lived through and done to bring us where we are today, I am proud to be a part of my family. I only hope they would have pride in me and what this generation has become.
As you gather with your family to celebrate this holiday season, whether it is a physical gathering or a gathering in your heart, my wish for you is a joyous celebration. Celebrate family, celebrate life, celebrate change. Happy holidays!
John George FORRYAN was born on 10 Oct 1849 in Wigston Magna, Leicestershire, England to William FORRYAN (1810-1892) and Jane GOODWIN (1820-1874) and was baptized on the 4th of November the same year. John George was the fourth born child and the eldest son in a family of four girls and two boys.
His early years were spent in Wigston Magna. Census returns show him living at Bell Street in 1851 at the age of 1 year. The next census in 1861 does not show him with his family so he was probably visiting another family. In 1871 when he was 21 years old he was living at 77 Bell Street and employed as a hatter.
On 7 Sep 1875 when John George was 25, he married Elizabeth CARTWRIGHT, daughter of William CARTWRIGHT (1812-1877) and Letitia SNAITH (1817-1895?), in Broughton Astley, Leicestershire, England. Elizabeth CARTWRIGHT was born on 3 Dec 1853 in Broughton Astley, Leicestershire, England and baptized on 22 Jan 1854 at the same place. Their marriage was by banns and witnessed by Elizabeth's brother and sister, William Cartwright and Annie Bridget Cartwright. At his marriage and at the birth of their third child and first-born son, William Cartwright FORRYAN, John George's occupation is shown as 'hosier'.
The family lived in Wigston Magna and the 1881 census shows them living at 7 Bell Street but now John George's occupation is shown as licensed victualler.
In 1884 at the birth of another daughter, John George's occupation has again changed to that of hosiery manufacturer, however, in 1886 we find him as the landlord of the "King William IV Inn" in Bell Street. There is a family story that this annoyed his father who lived opposite the Inn and was a teetotaler. Other records show that John George's grandfather on his mother's side was a publican in 1841 but there is no information on any disagreements between John George's father and his grandfather on the question of 'drink'.
By 1892, John George had changed his occupation to commercial clerk and he was living with his family on Manor Road, Wigston Magna. He and Elizabeth had nine children between 1876 and 1890, four boys and five girls.
In 1899, John George and Elizabeth moved to Nottingham, Nottinghamshire with some of the family. Here John George had secured a position as cigar manager for John Player and Sons, a branch of The Imperial Tobacco Co. (of Great Britain & Ireland). His salary was increased to over £250 per annum in January 1904 and was increased to £275 per annum on 10 October 1906. Initially they lived at 15 Burford Road (Kelly's Directory 1900 and 1904) but later moved to 33 Noel Street (Kelly's Directory 1908, 1912, 1928).
John George died at 33 Noel Street in Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, England on 17 Feb 1925 at the age of 75. Elizabeth continued to live at 33 Noel Street and died there on 1 Jan 1931 when she was 77.
It is interesting to note that John George did not receive a share of his father's possessions in his will as he had received "sums of money during his father's lifetime exceeding in value the share to which he would otherwise have been entitled". This 'share' was a loan to purchase property in Bull Head Street, Wigston Magna in 1874.
Of John George and Elizabeth's children, there are no male children to carry on the name. Of the four boys, three were killed in World War I. William Cartwright FORRYAN was killed accidentally at the age of 38 on the 5th of October 1917 near Arras, Passcendale, France, leaving his wife and three daughters. His widow emigrated to Canada in 1920 to live with her brother-in-law in Chauvin, Alberta. Donald FORRYAN was killed on the 16th of September 1916 at Somme, France. John Owen FORRYAN was killed on the 4th of November 1918 at Wargniesle Pettit France, just 7 days before the end of the war. The fourth son, Cyril Goodwin FORRYAN, had emigrated to Chauvin, Alberta, Canada before the war and although he was married twice and had four children, none of them survived to adulthood.
John George FORRYAN and Elizabeth CARTWRIGHT have a total of 62 descendants - 9 children, 10 grandchildren, 13 great grandchildren, 24 great great grandchildren, and 6 great great great grandchildren.
For each person collecting family history there is a variation in the way his or her information is organized, recorded and stored. Of greatest importance is that you develop a system that is easy and efficient for you to use because the easier and quicker you are able to organize, the more efficiently you can use your research time. At our October Study Group two branch members gave a quick review of their methods of organizing their family history projects. Each member approached the topic from a different perspective.
Method 1 - Laura Turnbull
Laura explained how keeping an inventory of and recording her sources is the key to organization of her genealogical research. Although Laura's recording is mostly kept on computer, her method may be used by anyone. Her paper copies of civil records, parish records, census records, wills and probate records, family letters, photographs, and so on are each assigned an identification number upon receipt.
Laura stores these paper copies in three-ring binders, tucked safely into the archival plastic covers we have all learned to love. Regardless of where it came from, which family line it is about, or what type of source i.e. interview, letter, certificate etc., are numbered in the same sequence in the order in which the documents were collected. After receiving its number, a document is tucked into an archival plastic cover, and placed in a three-ring binder. Laura's correspondence is kept in separate folders from her other research. Her family group sheet and pedigree charts are only complete when the source of her information is given.
EXAMPLE: See "Family Group for John George FORRYAN and Elizabeth CARTWRIGHT" below.
This method allows for a single document to provide information about many different individuals and to be filed in one place. It is easy to access the research document if one wants to study or consult it. There is no concern of "Does Grandma's birth certificate belong with her documentation as a child with her parents, or should I put it in the file kept on her and Grandpa's family?" There is no need to make multiple copies so that each file will have a copy. Each record - pedigree chart, family group sheet as child, family group sheet as parent - will provide the same identification number as to the source for the information.
Method 2 - Judith Bradley:
The main philosophy in Judy's record keeping is that the genealogical information is family information, and as such filed by family. This "by family" organization begins with the pedigree chart. It is a pedigree of families and not individuals.
Chart one starts with Judy's family as Judy being a parent. There are five generations of families on the chart, giving a total of thirty-one families on this first chart.
The file folder for Chart One Family One consists of:
Any other information pertinent to this family receives the same number: education records, awards, career records, pictures, and anything connected to this family.
The file folder for Chart One Family Two consists of the data collected on John's parent's family.
John's marriage record is kept in his "as a parent file". It is only the direct line family that appears in two files. John's brother's records are all kept in the file of his parent's family. THAT is the direct family to which he belongs.
Chart One Family Three is the family where Judy is a child. To continue back, the father in Chart One Family Sixteen becomes a child in Chart Two Family One. The mother in Chart One Family Sixteen becomes a child in Chart Three Family One.
In this method, Judy has multiple copies of some records. For example, John's Dad's birth record appears in his file with his wife, in the file where he appears as the child, and in his parent's files where THEY appear as children. It is because this is a record of the child's birth date and place, as well as information on the birthplace, age and occupations of his parents. The record confirms information appearing in other research such as family interviews and bible records.
It is handy to have all the family documentation in one spot. It makes it much easier to "grab" the information on one family in order to work on clues of other places to look. If the research is "taking to the road" it is easy to collect ALL the information available on one family quickly, and easy to put it all away again. This method also accommodates quick access to a specific family to share the information with another member of the family.
One important thing to remember is that there is NO ONE CORRECT way to organize your records and files. The best method to use is one that you WILL use. The clock keeps ticking, and there is so much we want to look at and do. It is much more fun to do the research, but if you do not record and organize effectively you may lose precious time hunting for that information you know you have, or even repeating your research because you have forgotten about the research you have already done.

I am currently gathering information for a book on Peace River area veterans of World War II who saw service in Sicily and Italy. These people would have served in the 1st Canadian Corps (consisting of the 1st Canadian Infantry Division, 5th Canadian Armoured Division and a Canadian independent tank brigade).
I am conducting taped interviews with all veterans willing to do so, and using these interviews to supplement my printed sources on the campaigns in Sicily and Italy.
The completed book will hopefully bring the story of an under-appreciated war contribution to an audience unfamiliar with this remarkable story. Any information on veterans willing to tell their stories would be much appreciated.

Our study group meets the second Wednesday of each month at 7:00 pm downstairs in the Grande Prairie Public Library.
This group is meant to support you in your research, help you with your "brick walls", and provide a time to share ideas and successes. We never know what our "brick wall" will bring.
From our last meeting:
"Help me find my grandfather. He left the wife and family when the children were young. Not a trace of him since. Heard through other family members he was working in Hollywood in set construction in the 1920's "Hunchback of Notre Dame" and "Uncle Tom's Cabin". What can I do now?"
Suggestions: Check when these movies were made to give a better date, check border crossings, Hollywood movie archives, Hollywood set construction union, (we are looking forward to hearing how this turns out).
January 12 - Sharing our millennium projects
Learning about a bossher, approver, and a hogringer (occupations)

Thank You to all ticket sellers and purchasers as the Branch raised over $2000.00 for Branch activities.
A Special Thank You to Paulette Hrychiw for making the Quilt and to Debby Was for making the Miniature.
These websites have been suggested by members as websites that they have found useful in their own research. Hope one can be of benefit to you. If you know of any interesting sites, please send them to Heritage Seekers c/o The Editor.
http://memory.loc.gov/ - a treasure trove of pictures, maps etc from the USA that will add much interest to your family history.
http://freebmd.rootsweb.com/ - indexes to British birth, marriage and death records.
http://www.ancestry.com/genpagefinder/ - a search engine - currently indexes the contents of over 200,000 genealogical web pages, updated every week, offers search results surrounded by their immediate context and free from non-genealogical clutter.
http://www.genfair.com/ - consortium of British genealogical societies that have banded together and pooled their resources to create one larger and more powerful website.
The following was part of an assignment given to the Wednesday Night Study Group on old occupations:
Anyone who knows my family well knows that my sister and I collect stuff - not necessarily useful at the moment, the items in question lie in wait until a suitable use for them is found (or not). We learned at the feet of the master - our dad - who not only saved things around the home, but actually picked things up off the street or took things that friends were throwing out. (We have limited our collecting to things around the house.)
So imagine my delight and surprise when I found my great-great grandfather John Duff in the 1881 Census for Aberdeen and his occupation was listed as a scavenger. At last a plausible excuse of my junk - "Sorry, I just can't help myself, it's in my family" or "I'm genetically programmed to save things."
Well, exactly what is a scavenger? Penny Christensen lists it as a man employed to clear refuse off the street. He had a person known as a raker who was his assistant. The raker was the one who went round 3 times a week doing the actual work of clearing the night soil and rubbish put out by the householders.
John Duff died in 1886 and was listed as working for the Police Corporation, so possibly street cleaning came under the auspices of the police at that time. I am willing to bet that whoever he was working for, anything that he considered useful got taken home!
