Tracking down the 7 Fathers of Confederation

Islanders love knowing who they're connected to and how. Geneologists love doing that kind of research.  The Prince Edward Island Genealogical Society is involved in a project to track down the seven Fathers of Confederation. They received a 2014 grant and recently presented their research at their annual general meeting. Linda Harding is one of the four Island geneologists and Louise Campbell is the writer on the project.
