Looking for descendents of the Juett family that settled around Kinsella. They emigrated from England in 1907 (from & show up on the Alberta Homestead site. The 1911 census lists George William Juett with his wife Susannah, 3 daughters, Elizabeth, Florence & Mable & 2 sons, George William, & Frances in Township 47. Nearby is another daughter Susannah who is married to Albert Kennett. They have a daughter, Queenie. In Township 45, another daughter Jessie is listed with her husband Frank Denison & their daughter Rose. The family is well documented on the site – Elizabeth went on to marry Charles Townsend & the son George married Annie Wessel. George was also in WW1 (papers are found on the Canadian archives site). One of the remaining daughters married William Johnston. The father died in 1918 in is buried in the Logan cemetery in Tofield.

Thanks, John

Hi John Have you searched Online White Pages Directory
for any of the surnames? they may be family connected.
Just searched JUETT - there are 2 JUETT in Calgary Alberta -
Nationwide: There are 5 JUETT including Calgary.

Family may have submitted stories/history to the Local Family History book project.
Check: Alberta GenWeb Local History Book site.
There is an index of names - and the titles of books where the names appear.

Provincial Archive in Edmonton may hold some of the local history books.

Greetings John, I just saw your posting; I grew up about 1 mile from Queenie Kennett and her husband Jack Smith. I'm not sure what information I have to give you,but I am very familiar with the names Juett and Kennett. I had done some research on the names for a descendant of the Greenwoods you mentioned, but that was awhile ago, and you probably have all the research done for England anyway. Anyway, get in touch if there is something you think I may be able to help you with.......Bonnie
