  • Notes 
    • Fay Bennett took an early retirement in 2012 from a career in health care spanning 33 years. She graduated from Queen?s University with a Bachelor of Science in Physiotherapy and worked in that profession in both the hospital and home care sectors providing direct service and later as manager of therapy and case management services.

      Fay is married and has two daughters. She thoroughly enjoys spending time with her two granddaughters. Fay grew up in Cobden and has lived her entire life there, except for 4 years in Kingston during university years and 3 years in Renfrew when she and her husband Earl moved to be closer to work locations. However, the draw back home to Cobden was too strong!

      Fay's interest in family history began at a young age. The Sunday afternoon outings and long weekend trips with her parents usually consisted of, or ended in, a visit to a relative(s). On the journey to and fro, her parents would point out farms or homes that had previously been owned by a close or very distant family member. By high school years, she was recording the genealogical data she had gleaned from these visits. Her interest in preserving family history has culminated in the authoring of a number of books, research aids and articles, as well as assisting other budding genealogy buffs in producing their own family history.

      Fay has been a member of many Ontario based genealogical groups over the years and has served on the executive for the Upper Ottawa Valley Genealogical Group in a number of capacities. Recently, she has been volunteering with The Whitewater Historical Society, documenting the history of Cobden Businesses & Buildings as well as serving as volunteer archivist. She has also completed some formal training in genealogical studies. Fay has also volunteered on a number of Board of Directors as well as executives of various organization and is currently a member of the Board of Directors for Lanark Renfrew Health and Community Services.

      Fay has delighted in the additional time to focus on genealogy since retirement and has finally had the opportunity to launch & continually add to this website.

      The purpose of FaysGenealogy.Com is to:
      1. Share family history information and photographs with family and fellow researchers
      2. Connect with researchers interested in families in the Whitewater Region (Ross & Westmeath Townships, Cobden) who would like to share information, documents and photos
      3. Create an electronic photo archive of early Ross and Westmeath Township families

      If you would like to share information, comment on the website (please do!), provide documents or photos for the website or request information, please email Fay at: faygen@nrtco.net
