"Mom's Book"

At last I have found time to scan and post a copy of what we in our family call "Mom's Book". This is a family history, written by my mother Janet Eleanor Scott Harding in 1985-86, centred on the life of her father George William Scott.

Because I don't have one server which can accommodate the whole book, I have broken it into several sections. Just click on each link in order and then use the 'back' button in your browser to take you back to the list.

When one shares family history, one always runs the risk of giving the appearance that everyone should be interested, much like forcing visitors to watch home movies. Nothing could be farther from the truth. This is simply a convenient way to share this information with those who might be interested. My mother's writing style is very readable and there is a wealth of information herein about life and people in Gananoque, Grace United Church, along with the family history.

I encourage every family to do two things: 1) write down the stories that you have heard your parents and grandparents tell and 2) write the names on the back of photographs
