Dear Up To Rawdon Friends:
It was an honour to be invited to attend the 20th Annual Rawdon Family Fair hosted by the United and Anglican Churches of the community on July 11. I had some photo albums on display and reference material available and sat in the shade of an open-sided tent on the Anglican Rectory Grounds, to answer inquiries from those who came by.
I am grateful that many of you take time to contact me with new information, photos and maps. The main column on the home page of uptorawdon.com contains some of this information. Anything directly related to the text of Up To Rawdon such as corrections or early photos may be found in the Author’s and Readers’ Updates section.
Thank you to those who have told me that the information that I have gathered has been helpful to their research. In collecting and presenting data and stories my purpose has always been to share and to present the material a way that is clear and reliable and with reference to sources. Thank you to those who have encouraged relatives to invest in books or helped to place copies in libraries.
Please let me know if you wish to be removed from the mailing list and do not wish to receive occasional future messages.
With warm regards,
