I hope you enjoy and benefit from this site. If you have any pictures, names, dates, or spelling corrections to offer please contact me so we can improve this legacy. Thanks!
The tree was last updated on May 26, 2021. Here's a history of the changes. There is also a list of cemeteries, a map of notable places, and a list of research websites that I've used.
There are 5 ways to look at the Family Tree information:
Method 1 is some quick-links for specific individuals, including John Simpson (me), John Stanley Measor (my maternal grandfather), George Brown Simpson (my paternal great-grandfather), Cathey Simpson (my wife), Irene Gagnon (Cathey's paternal grandmother), Albert Joseph Laforge (Cathey's maternal grandfather), and Andy Waggott (Cathey's uncle)
Method 2 is the Names Index that allows you to search for any individual in the database. Are you in there?
Method 3 is to scroll down now, to see lists of pictures of some specific Simpsons and Measors.
I may have additional pictures (including some of you?) even if the name isn't in the list below. If you're interested or worried, contact me and I'll share whatever I have directly with you. If you wish, I'll post your photos here for the world to enjoy, because you are unique and special, just like everyone else.
Method 4 is the creation of a custom report from the genealogy software that I use. If you're interested in that, contact me and we'll see if one of the options works for you.
Method 5 would be for you to download my entire database and then import it into your own software. I use Legacy Family Tree version 8.0, which is very good for record-keeping, but a little weaker at making reports. There are many good software options available that will accept the GEDCOM 5.5.1 data format I provide here. The file is current as-of Feb. 1, 2021, but be aware that it has no photos. Those exist on my website only, and you can download them manually from there.

Bonus photo! Here's a picture of the Simpson family taken in Windsor, Ontario in 1919, after they'd been in Canada about 10 years. - My grandfather, John Simpson (1895-1982) is standing on the left. His parents, George Brown Simpson (1858-1920) and Mary Ann Tallis (1857-1943), are seated on the left. (I really like this colourized version).
