Hello Jewel Irwin, LStoner, and Jackie Hamilton.
My name is Melanie McLennan (nee Beacom). Jackie and I connected on some family tree info she was looking for and she relayed Jewel's message to me. I am Laura's oldest sister and have only started working on the family history in the last couple of years. Laura had done a great deal earlier on, but has not gotten back to it in a serious way because of demands on her time and is not currently subscribing to Ancestry.
We are very interested in following the leads for the use of the name "Irwin" as a middle name for three generations of our family. Laura has some info on this that I have not yet got from her but I will copy her on this email and see if we can connect the dots. Her email address has changed to firstname.lastname@example.org
thanks for the help.
