Hello! Annie Schubert/Shubert is my paternal grandmothers sister. I am starting a family tree but wondering if you have any tips for the research part. I'm at a complete standstill on the MacDonald side. My father's name was Everett Bruce MacDonald. He always spoke fondly of Wendell (one of his favorite cousins) and I'm guessing my father was named after your grandfather.

Wendall and Blanche (Smith) Amon had 15 children, now all deceased. I am a granddaughter and would be pleased to reply to any inquiries.

I was able to find some information for you.
under the 1901 and 1911 Canadian census, many of the Amon's are listed and also where they were living. There were too many to list here.
Soldiers of the First World War
has three Amon's listed that are probably all brothers, Alexander, John and William. Don't get confused by the birth dates, many people could barely read or write and many of the birth dates are incorrect.

has numerous birth, marriage and deaths listed that you can actually look at the original documents on line. It will give you parents, places and dates.

Good luck

Researching genealogy relating to the Amon family of Springhill NS.

EC Amon was stationed in the UK before departing for France and lost his lift in Belgium 5/10/1944.

Any information gladly received....would visit but Salisbury UK, to Springhill Canada is quite a trek!
