More Genealogical Kindness

I have just been blessed with yet another "Random Act of Genealogical Kindness''...

I am completely beside myself at the moment. I sent an email to Cathy today because I remembered that she mentioned seeing my Aunt's engagement notice in a scrapbook at the Thorold Historical Society. I was wondering how I could see it too. I just received this in my inbox. Miss Rita Manley is my dearly missed Aunt Deedee and my Godmother. I've never seen this before. I never knew John because he died just before I was born but as the story goes, there was never two people more in love...

You might recall Cathy is the lady who was the friend of my cousin Jinny that I wrote about here.

Thank you Cathy!
