|About From England to Canada and beyond, one Families Journey
Please sign in to see more.
This Web Site is dedicated to the memory of our immigrant ancester John Buckland who
arrived in Canada from England with his wife Matilda and six children in tow, aboard the ship
VICKSBURG arriving at Quebec on July 20 1874.
They settled down in Ottawa Ontario.
From there their decendants have spread out to where today they are all over Canada
and down into the United States
Every effort has been made to provide accurate and factual information in this
endeavour but errors and omissions can happen.
So on that note enjoy this tree called BUCKLAND, and remember if you shake any tree
hard enough there is bound to be a few nuts fall out. lol
Keep checking back in as more information is being added, this is an ongoing project
If you know the name(s) of the people in the unknown Photo Album could you please send them to me
