About Miller Higgins
For those of you in the Miller line of this tree, I've recently been able to trace some  ancestry in England, so the tree goes back a little further to Isaac Kitchin (b.1697) and  Thamar Gaitskell (b.1710) in the Lake District of Northern England.

My thanks to Lani Baker Mitchell (Our Gaspe Roots) for her very extensive list of Gaspe  Ancestors that is very well researched and is far more detailed that my own information. Ms.  Mitchell has generously allowed public viewing of non-living relatives, and you may very well  find additional information on your ancestors there.

We are a nation of immigrants, so there are multiple European lines in this tree. The  Gaspesians (Millers) are mostly British, originating from the time of Montcalm and Wolfe.  Wendy's line is a bit more recent, and includes German and Ukrainian ancestors, as well as  French-Canadians, who went were there was work.
 There's also a bit of mystery about her grandfather, orphaned and adopted (we think). My sister-in-law Christine has French-Canadian roots going back to the time when the border  with the United States was fluid, but also has European grandparents.  So the stories have many variations. We would love to hear your versions.

Recent research came from Family Search, which is a free resource of shared information  gathered by others and posted by them. It is similar in concept to the RootsWeb One-World Tree,  but I find it much more usable, since you can find and flag duplicate information to reduce  your search efforts.

The grave marker sites have indexed information that allow you to find or verify information  that you may be missing.
