Anderson (Thomas) Edmonton, 1880s+; Many thanks to the research group of the AGS Edmonton branch for helping reunite the Canadian, English and Australian branches of the Anderson family. Some old letters in a trunk owned by an elderly cousin in England lead me to search for Canadian relations whose existance I was unaware of to that point. A query on this page was answered by an AGS researcher and the wealth of information she provided then lead, via a second Canadian web site, to me being contacted by a relation in Calgary who never knew of the Australian Andersons! We are now planning a reunion in Calgary! It should be quite an event as we have more than 100 years to catch up on! Thank you so much for your help.
