I am a retired online school teacher. During July 2007 - January 2010, and September 2011 - March 2014, I provided part-time support for https://familysearch.org This is very rewarding. I have helped many with the free Personal Ancestral File 5 (PAF5) software. I continue to help others with the Family Tree and related FamilySearch products.

Our Annual Ing Family Reunion was held on August 2-4 at the Funnell hall, north of Breton, Alberta. All four of the surviving children of Richard Ing and Louisa Wright were there, as well as descendants of all five of the five surviving lines. In the photo we see Charles, Myrtle, Dorothy, and Violet on the front steps of the Funnell hall.
Among those present were (I say that because I was only there on the Saturday, and I may have forgotten someone):
Marion's son Ernie and his wife Donna
Charlie's daughter Karen and her husband Darcy
Dorothy's children: Bill and wife Judy, Reg and wife Carol, Lloyd, Ed and wife Michelle, Judy; also grandchildren: Rob, Andrew (and family), James and new wife Karin; Brandon and his fiancee Tiffany; great grand-daughter Taryn
Vi's daughter Diane and Al
Myrtle's husband Evans, daughter Shirley and husband Dave
It was wonderful to get a photo of the four Ings. I wish that we had gotten a photo of us five Buchanan children too. It was really nice to gether again as family!
