It is difficult to find a name with only the first initials and no specific time period. I have records of a number of J Blairs living in Stormont County and a number of J H Blairs living in other counties.

To assist you in your search I am replying to your query at Stormont Co GenWeb and to your home email address as well. I am attaching two files from the Blairs of Ontario database and emailing them to your email address for your perusal. The files may be opened in a web browser such as Explorer or Netscape. They will be scanned for viruses at hotmail.com.

Good luck in your search for J H Blair. If you would like to publish your email address and additional information on any Blair relations in Ontario to 1901 within the database please let me know.

Best of luck,
Fred

I have just recently started on my Blair family search and I was hoping you may be able to help me. I think the first of my family that I know of were Robert(born in the early 1800's) and Rose Blair, who for sure had a sons named James and Joseph. Robert may have had a brother named Edward. I think they may have lived in and around the Stormont County. Any help you may be able to give me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.

I am replying to your query at Rootsweb.com and with attachments to your home email address.

You are researching the family of Robert Blair & Rose Colquohoun, born 1790 & 1791 in Ireland, and who settled in Stormont Co in 1836.

This family is also being researched by Erin Blair, <inuuk@sympatico.ca>. Robert's brother Edward's family is being researched by Bob Blair, <rblair@magma.ca> & by Elizabeth Devolin, <jimbet@sympatico.ca>. They will be interested in corresponding with you.

I am not related to these families but have collected material on them. I am attaching 5 files from the Blairs of Ontario to 1901 database. The files may be opened in a web browser such as Explorer or Netscape. They will be scanned for viruses at hotmail.com.

Please read the "index" file first. Robert & Rose will be listed with the R's by birth date. Follow the cross-references to other family members. Once you have updated your records you may wish to contact Erin, Bob, & Elizabeth to compare notes.

If you have material to add to the database or would like your email address published as a contact person please let me know.

Happy trails,
Fred Blair

I am a descendent of Edward Blair, Robert's brother.
I have a considerable amount of the trees of both brothers. The detailed work for Robert Blair was done by Erin Blair (mentioned). The detailed work for Edward Blair was done by Elizabeth Devolin.
Ive been mostly consolidating and loading the information into Family Tree Maker.
Would like to hear any other side re the info.
