Cook Family

My branch of the Cook family can trace its roots back to Thomas Cook and Mary Colquhaun who came from Donaghadee County Tyrone, Ireland. The family first settled in the United States (most likely Michigan) and then moved to Canada around 1844/45.

The above listed resources are an excellent place to put primary source documentation for other researchers. Documentation of all information on a family is crucial. Misinformation can cause other researchers years of frustration and they will never again trust the information that you send to them.
