We All Make History – Tommy’s Beach

I’m so excited to finally start sharing this passion project I’ve been working on for the past year. I’m taking a decade of family history research and recording the life stories of my ancestors. The writing was really easy but the recording was the real challenge. My elocution is a bit awkward and I’m still fumbling my way through the editing process but I hope my skills will improve over time, as I have so many of these stories to share.

This is the story of my great-great Grandfather from Grimsby Beach, Ontario.

Clarabelle Wilcox (Tommy’s wife) with granddaughter Eva, taken in the mid-1920s. In the background, you can see one of the original Methodist camp cottages.

Our Ontario offers a lot of free newspaper archives.

Check out Summers by the Lake for pictures and postcards from Grimsby Beach Park.

This audio recording was written and edited entirely by me. 

The intro music is Stay Quiet by Monplaisir and the outro is Pine Apple Rag by Scott Joplin. 

Thanks for listening and check back in a few weeks for my next story!
