"Thelma Wright and her late brother Bill Ferguson were members of the Whitby - Oshawa Genealogical Society and both were well known and respected genealogists. Thelma was a major contributor to the school house project, by donating pictures for scanning and traveling with us when we GPS'd Cartwright Township. She was also instrumental in the production of a book on The English Family. She was a good friend and will be missed.". . . . from K.N., Durham Region Branch Council Member
