I registered for the Quatsino Blog because several people from my homeplace here in Trysil, Norway were among those who first settled at Quatsino. I have read the story written by George Nordstrom about these first settlers and their struggle. It is extremely fascinating - and I would like to know more about their story and about the place.

I August 2008, we will arrange an emmigration reunioen here in Trysil - a meeting between descenders of Trysil emmigrants to USA/Canada. What a great happening it would be if somebody from Quatsino could come and tell the story.

You can follow information about the "Stevne" on our homepage: http://www.hig.no/hildings/Trysilstevne/index.htm

OR on the homepage for Trysil Historielag USA-Canada:

I moved to Blackfalds in the summer of 1969. We moved to 5515 Shull St. A bottle of pop from the general store was 17 cents. The population was 250 people. The first kid I met was Wayne Kingstone. I stayed in Blackfalds until 1980. It was a great little town to grow up in. All the freedom you ever wanted. And of course lots of trouble to get into with the right friends. So I guess I had the right friends because I got into loads of trouble. But this is what kids growing up are suppose to do. If you remember me or that time in Blackfalds. Please Blog away. I almost forgot . I was 7 years old in 1969.

I read in a newspaper in Kirriemuir, Angus, Scotland
that Kirriemuir in Alberta got its name from Kirriemarians working on the Canadian Pacific Railway - they thought that
the area was similar to their hometown so they called it after Kirriemuir in Scotland.

There is also an Alyth along the road from Kirriemuir both in Scotland and in Canada. I beleive there is several other Scottish place names in Canada named by the Railway Workers who came from Scotland.

My family and I visited your lovely town this summer and were lucky enough to catch a performance of Al Berard and his daughter (?) who were up from Louisiana for the Acadian festival. It was an enjoyable evening.
The next day I took pictures of the area businesses and the fish market to show the grade two classes. They are studying Meteghan as part of their social studies.
I made a couple of power point presentations and presented them recently to the grade twos. They were fascinated to learn your community is not much different from ours (except for the water: we are land locked). They had so many questions and I tried my best to answer them with my limited knowledge of Meteghan and two days of sight seeing. It was great fun.
I'd like to thank Meteghan for sharing your community with us in Alberta. You were great!!

Hi, I am moving from England to Rural Kinistino and I was hoping for any helpful advice you think may be needed for a family not used to the road and weather conditions. Also where would be the best place to buy fresh produce. My Family and I can't wait to get to Canada. Thanks

Denholm is a beautiful getaway from the city life, tucked away in the heart of the rolling gatineau hills. This small canton has awsome trails bringing you to breath taking views of the country side and a water fall, it has many lakes offering summer getaways and excellent fishing.

Though this may be a very quiet and small town, it still holds that untouched beauty that lets you experience God's creation! ( you can tell I love this place )

A great time to drive by is in the hight of fall colors!
