One of the wonders of life is that two individuals, such as Edith and I, are the only two people in all the world who share the same gene pool. We are unique. We are also fortunate to have had loving parents who descended from loving families. 
We had 29 aunts and uncles and almost 50 first cousins. We are proud of our heritage and of our Ancestry.

Our story began with the marriage of James Bolton Smith and Edith Patricia Bentley in Cochrane, Ontario.
