Have been wondering if you got to Ireland this summer to do more family history. I met with Betty Chisholm and her sister Debbie early on this summer. We went through your Crossen family tree and they asked me if I would forward you the following corrections and additional info.
John Crossen married Mary Isabella Lang in 1938.
Betty Chisholm's middle name is Jane.
Debbie Ann Crossen was born on the 20th of Mar. 1955.
Clifford Robert Crossen had two wives--don't know who the first one was but the second was Joan Brooks. Betty and Debbie think they had 5 children.
Joan Louise Crossen married Orwell Budd Philp in 1958. They are not divorced.
William George Crossen married Helen Stockard of Bashaw Alberta---not Stockyard.
I continue to work on Molly's family. It has been a long process and I continue to find out more family connections all the time. I now have 9 in Molly's family. I have them back to 1891 but have not got them all back in Russia. That is going to be the hardest part.
Let me know if you made that exciting journey to Ireland.
