After about 15 years I have pulled out my genealogy research and have come across my grandfather's Bigelow Society papers. Amongst them was a letter which makes reference to a second book being put together. Can you tell me if this book was ever done and whether or not I can get copies of the 1st and 2nd books? Are there more than 2 books? I am copying my genealogy and giving it to nieces and nephews and I would like to give them these books as well. My grandfather was A.A.Mason of Verdun Que, going back to his mother Melinde Bigelow, to Adam Chester Bigelow, to Adam Chester Bigelow (the 1st), to Cornelius and Persis (Harris) Bigelow.
Thanks so much for your information on membership for Canadians and the info below that you sent. I am the great grandaughter of Joseph Timothy Mason (spelled Masson in my grandfather's baptismal record) and Melinda Bigelow.
Their son Alric Adolphe Mason is my grandfather and Orville H. Mason is my father so I guess the Bigelow name stopped with my great grandmother as far as our branch of the tree is concerned. Thanks so much again for a wonderful
web site. I will be sending in my registration.
Thanks so much in advance for you help. Please send responses to this email to email address email@example.com,
