Headstone Of Nigel Robertson Miller With Earlier Photo

A man from Belgium generously offered to put a picture of Nigel Roberton Miller on his headstone in the Lijssenthoek Military Cemetery, Poperinge, West-Vlaanderen, Belgium.  V. D. 28. Nigel  died, Thursday, 6th. April 1916, when he was in the Canadian Infantry (Central Ontario Regiment) 19th. Bn. The picture was taken when he was in Wick, and believe this is when he fought for the British Forces in the Boer War.

More family pictures from Maureen Materi

4 May 2003

Maureen Materi has begun to send postcards sent to or from her ancestors.  They show some of the places the family got to.  As the collection is quite extensive and likely to grow as Maureen sends in more postcards they will be divided up into categories Caithness, Non Caithness UK, Canada, England, New Zealand and so on.  If other postcards are sent by other people with Caithness connects they will be added in separate sections so that anyone just interested in Maureen Materi's collection can view them on their own.  but whether you have a family connection or not the postcards are a very interesting look at Caithness, Canada and other places in the early 20th century.

Accounts of the death of Donald Angus Miller from the Rochdale Observer 1922

In response to many enquiries additional information has been entered to the
The Miller Family Picture of 1892

Another page added to the Photo album.  This has a picture of Thackrays Mrs Materi's Grandparents, a picutre of the homestead in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan.
Also an unknown family of Millers 1915/16.  Mrs Materi would appreciate any help in identifying this section of the family.

Mrs Materi's section on the Miller Family has been very successful.  Many people have contacted her since some of her research has been placed on Caithness.org.  Her mother died on 8 February 2001 and she has many family matters to attend to.

Due to the success of her pages showing a small part of many years work she has decided to take steps to make it easier for her to distribute other information she holds.  Her many years of work cover many aspects including family history connected to not only Millers but many connected families.  It is not possible to present many years of work quickly without a great deal of further preparation.

With respect to Miller connections she will get to many of your requests - just bear with her as she reorganises her records and sets up some new equipment to help make it easier to retrieve and send out more information to distant relatives who are now coming forward in ever greater numbers.

The connections to Caithness are many, but there are many other connections in her family records and it will take some considerable time for someone working on their own to put it into a form that makes it possible to put it onto a web site or send to individuals.  Many of the papers have been acquired after many years of research and the cost in time and financial terms has been considerable.  Mrs Materi is happy to provide information to relatives no matter how distant and to make more of her research available on the web.  but this will take time.  Please be patient.

Caithness.org will be assisting Mrs Materi in any way possible to exhibit any material she feels can be put in the public domain.  For certain information she will only do so where permission has been granted by family members   Where permission is not granted the material will not be published.
