Last fall while attending the First Annual Festa dei Nonni in Windsor Ontario, sponsored by the Italian Genealogy and Heraldry Society of Canada, I was fortunate enough to meet with a very special and amazing artist, Kathryn Rutherford from Heirloom Art Studio. Kathryn has not only received several awards for her outstanding work but has restored many family portraits over the years. She showcased some of her work at the Festa last Fall and I was amazed with her award winning SPIRIT PAINTINGS in which she adds the spirits of her great grandparents into her portraits.
Kathryn’s studio is located at 2616 Wears Valley Rd, Sevierville, TN. You can also view her blog at Fine Artist at Heirloom Art Studio for updates on her latest works.
The Ontario Vital Statistics Project is a extracted collection of Ontario Marriages from 1800 through 1927. Part 1 is arranged by county using sources other than post-1869 civil registrations . Part 2 uses Ontario Civil Registration from 1869 to 1927, and is taken from the Ontario Archives, microfilm MS 932.
Many Italian marriages took place during this time and are included in the pages. Once again, the site exists due to the help of the wonderful volunteers and is also free to use.
