Our visit to the Dickson Family Farmhouse in Ingersoll, Ontario was a remarkable experience. The decaying of the structure and the remaining toys and artifacts offered up plenty of rummaging fun, but it was the contents of a box uncovered on the second floor that brought the Dickson family to life. The box was full of correspondence dated between 1902 and the late 1920s between the Scottish Dickson immigrants and their family members both back home and in nearby Tavistock, Ontario.

Until my eyes bled, I spent the day today transcribing those letters to the best of my abilities. Click the link to delve into the minds and hearts of the deceased members of the Dickson family, in their own words...
