Happy Thanksgiving - Online tree - Sankey clippings

Happy Thanksgiving weekend!

I just realized it has been about 10 months since I have posted here. Too many blogs, too little time.

I wanted to share the online tree that our cousin Jamie Toeppner created a few years back. There isn't a lot on the Sankey branch but he does have quite a bit of information on the Mechefske side. His site also has some wonderful photos and history of the area where many of our ancestors settled when they came to Canada. You can find all of this at

I also came across a few clippings this week from The Canadian Lutheran Magazine that had family references.
