gung hay fat choy MacKenzie clan!

Toronto, 2014.02.06

At a Chinese New Year's party this past weekend I met someone who, like my mother's family, has connections to the MacKenzies of "Middle River" in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. We decided to put our family genealogists (her father; my mother) in touch to see what they could learn. It turns out that my family's been here for many decades longer. Ah well, worth a try. My mum did manage to dig up some interesting photos of the other woman's family, however. Stern, early-twentieth-century portraits of stern, stern Scotsfolk.
