In memorium - Jean Alcock

So I got an e-mail from my father telling me that our cousin Jean Alcock has died. She was a daughter of my grandfather's oldest brother. He emigrated to Canada and all his children were born there.

I met Jean once, maybe twice, when she visited Scotland. She is the cousin who got me interested in genealogy. She asked my dad, in the 70's,  to draw up a calligraphy family tree of the Lindsay's and he gave me a copy of it.

Turns out that family members do not have her sister's new address so I am doing some investigating. 

(It's now a few hours later and I have been able to find Jean's obituary on-line at The Western Star and sign the on-line memorial book on behalf of my parents.)
