John Carrigan was born 1922 in Westville Nova Scotia. His Father's name was Patrick and is mother's name Harriet. His brother's name was Bruce and sister's name Aldona. I am John Carrigan's daughter Sharon. John also had two sons named John and Kevin. We left Nova Scotia aprox. 1949/50 to live in Toronto. John, Kevin and myself sailed to the UK in 1955 with our mother Margaret. Dad, folowed us 1956. I have just started my family tree and would like to find my cousins, Bruce and Rita, who are the children of Aldona. I am visiting Nova Scotia August 2009 and would appreciate any information available.
Many thanks
