My 2nd cousin, Jennifer (Jenny) Venville, now Nicol, sent me the following photos today. This is the wedding picture of my father's parents, Fred & Evangeline (Venville) Fisher. The wedding took place in England in the summer of 1912. My grandparents came to Canada for several years to scout out the land and then returned to Birmingham. Dad was born there in 1922 and the family came back to Canada shortly after that. I've also included a photo of the home of my grandparents (and my dad) for a short period of time before they returned to Canada.
These historical things intrigue me. My office is in the attic of the home in Peterborough that my grandparents lived in for many years. My brother Jim has an office on the main floor as well.
