A SPECIAL TRIBUTE TO IRENE MORIN FOX

   Irene Morin Fox ( 18 Apr 1902 – 31 Oct 1974 ) was the eighth child of Frederick Nelson Morin, youngest son of Antoine Morin and Émélie dit Larivière and brother to Philippe Morin married to Sara Summers.



Irene was the first of the girls to finish her education and become a teacher. She taught in Ontario, Saskatchewan and Windsor, that I know of. In 1933, at the age of 31, she married 39 year old Scotsman Bill Fox in London, Ontario, a golf pro who, when they met, was the pro…

November 2010 update/novembre 2010 en suite

The 2010 Morintrek dvd is almost ready for distribution. We have most of the addresses of those who will love it. Contact Gerry if you are worried that you are not on the mail-out.

September 2010 developments

Well folks,

Here's what I'm up to with the Morintrek. The earlier part of our family history has been very well documented by Jacques-Yvan Morin in his book L'Odyssée des Morin. I met with him this past week and I have begun translating this book into English. It covers his whole family history up to his father. The first two generations are the same as ours and then the chapter on Pierre Morin III has a lot in common with our ancestor Charles Morin of the same…

Morintrek continuation

I wasn't sure what to do with the morintrek, but have decided to keep it alive for the next year. I'll do some editing over the next while and start putting up the aftermath of our trip.

Please feel free to use this site to contact me in the meantime. I'll be meeting Jacques Yvan Morin, the author of l'Odyssee des Morin, a very well written account of his ancestors who are also ours for the first two generations. We have a tentative agreement to translate the book into English and…

Thanks, Gerry

Having accompanied Morin descendent Amery (Anne-Marie to some of you) Boyer on the trek, I want to say that I truly enjoyed the trek, meeting some participants for the first time, and renewing acquantainces with others - and I particularly want to recognize and thank Gerry for his lead role in organizing the trek itinerary and sharing his genological research along the way - the latter including the preparation of the power-point presentations, obviously reflected a lot of work but they…

Registration

Dear Gerry,

It would be great to show registration numbers on the site somehow. Also, the tag line at the top of the home page should be changed to read 2010 instead of 2009.

Love,

Annie

Philippe & Sarah Morin homestead

I finally was lucky enough to visit the Philippe Morin and Sarah Summers homestead, which was owned by the Winters family when I was growing up in Cumberland. Phil McNeely, Tom McNeely and Maureen Morin all have memories of this place. Maureen was born there, Phil and Tom remember attending picnics there. It's set on the highest point of land in that area with a beautivul view of the Ottawa River and Laurentian Mountains. The house is now owned by the Ottawa Public School Board, McSkimming… Continue
