"Our first Purdon family member to arrive in Canada was Robert Purdon who sailed from Glasgow, Scotland in 1821 with his wife, Jane Ferguson, and their four young children. They came with the hope of a better life to the unknown and wilderness of Upper Canada. The subject of this book is to provide information about his Scottish ancestry and to continue with information on his seven children, sixty-six known grandchildren, and their descendants"--Intro. Descendants have resided in Scotland, England, Ontario, Manitoba, British Columbia, Alberta and elsewhere.

It was most unfortunate that I did not receive enough updates on the various families in order to publish a sequel. It was my original intent that I would publish an update. FJG

Well written and documented family history. Unfortunately the book is long out of date and efforts to share updated family history were one sided.
