Kathy Giles: My main area of expertise would likely be the Swedish and Norwegian population of the area going back to the early 1900's. I also have in my possesion a wonderful book of the history the develeopment of the McCrosson - Tovell townships ( this is mainly Bergland) but there is information on many of the surrounding settlements and it s peoples, including some mention of Rat Portage ( which I believe to be Kenora ?) The book also contains the names and history of many thousands of families, and their histories from the late 1800's to present day. The book was published in 1993.

Diane Sheppard: I have the following local history books, "The River of Time" - Emo history and "Between the Ripples" - Chapple history, and "Water under the Bridge - History of the Little Grassy River (McCrosson-Tovell)". I would be willing to do look-ups for family names found within these books.
