Boyle Family Photos and Genealogy - for the Boyles descended from the Peter Robinson settlers that came to Canada from Ireland in 1823

Actually, while the Boyle side is the main thrust of the page, I will be going through some of my other ancestors as well, including Holley's, Hunt's, Storey's, McNabb's, and others. I will also be expanding it to include my mom's side, which includes Young (Yung/Jung), Markowski, and others as well. Once the first big update is done, I will list all of the family names. I am also going to try and make most of the information pages into actual text (not scans of text documents), so that you can search for them on the webpage with ease. Some documents, however, have to be scanned pictures, and will have to be searched by eye, looking at them.

Recent Updates:

January 1, 2016 A major update, as I vainly try to catch up on almost 7 months of emails (work got abnormally busy this past 7 months, so I had little time to work on genealogy at all). This updated catches up emails from people from the end of May, and most of June and the beginning of July - but I still have 40+ more emails to go through, as I get time. Figured I might as well issue the update now, and catch up more of it as time permits. My apologies to all who have submitted these past 7 months; I will respond to them as I get to each email. Some thanks youís for what I have caught up: Harold Brown, Bruce Davie, Barb Malchuk and Kerry Olauson.

July 27, 2015 A fairly major update, although I didnít get as near as much done as I had hoped, before getting busy with work (so, no updates for another month or so). Many new names, a few new photos, etc. Thanks again to Barb Malchuk for most of the contributions this round. Proper credits will be in the next big update, which is when I will complete all the stuff still sitting in my queue.

April 4, 2015 Another fairly major update, with more to come as I get time to enter them in. Many new names, some new photos, some new details, etc. Big thanks this round go Barb Malchuk, Judy Cowan and Glenn Dicksonfor their large contributions.

January 10, 2015 The major update is finally done. Thousands of new names, new details and new photos. Big thanks go to Barb Malchuk & Judy Cowan for their large contributions, and also to smaller updates from Allegra Newill, Melody VanderPloeg, Lisa Wheeldon, Megan Stafford, Gillan Berry, Megan Stafford and others. Big thanks also to Find A Grave and The Canadian Gravemarker Gallery for being great resources, and invaluable on figuring out dates, etc. I have included some images from these websites on mine as well (and have contributed some for Saskatchewan)Ö please consider donating photos for cemeteries near you to these sites as well.

November 2, 2014 Part 1 of a major update with corrections, deletions, additions, more photos, ec. I was originally going to wait until I had all of the changes done, but thanks to many people contributing new information, and on in particular who seems to send me new stuff at least once per week (Hi, Barb!), I am going to do this in several chunks.

May 26, 2014 Some minor corrections/additions to the tree (including some photos, notes, and new people), and the first few photos for the new Unknown Photos page. Also retired the original family tree I started years back and then never updated. Also updated the links page.

May 7, 2014 Finally - A LARGE UPDATE TO THE FAMILY TREE! Have added more people/families, a lot more photos, etc. You can see these photos by clicking on "Images" in that persons page on the tree (if they have images, anyways). This is the first of 2 major updates that I have been working on. If I have multiple pictures of the same person at different ages, I have tried including a good variety of them, to help visitors to the site determine if they also have photos of these people, at different ages. There are bound to be some errors in these; if you find I have an image of the wrong person for somebody, please let me know (my email link is further down this page). Also, if you have any pictures of people that are in this tree, but I donít have images for, please also email those to me as well, identifying any that you can (and when approximately it was taken, if you know).

April 26, 2014 - More updates to the family tree have been added periodically over the past two years, but I just realized that I never mentioned that here. Oops. Also, some technical information on the steamer pictures (see the 'All Photos' page link below, and look for the link with the steamer that blew up), thanks to a non-relative who was perusing the site looking for info for a book on steamers that he is doing. I should also mention - a major update will be coming soon, with a lot more names (and facts) on the tree, as well as a lot more photos off the tree page entries, and some more 'general' photos as well.
November 8, 2012 - More updates to the family tree.

May 31, 2011 - More updates to the family tree.

December 24, 2010 - Another large amount of updates to the family tree, including some new pictures.

August 13, 2010 - Large amount of updates to the family tree, including some new pictures. Due to several requests, birth dates for people still living are now blank (I hope I got them all... please let me know if I missed some.) I also had a corruption problem with duplicate entries showing up that I have hopefully fixed as well... once again, let me know if you find such errors.


1) All photos page - this page will link to all of the "main" photos currently on the website. These will be full sized photos, not the smaller thumbnail style ones that will show up in the family tree section).
2) Photos by Person page - these pages will contain lists of photos that a particular person appears in (either by themselves or with others). Please note that pictures that don't have people in them (objects, houses, etc.), will NOT show up here.
3) Quick&dirty Family Tree - this is the family tree webpage that is generated by the Freeware program Personal Ancestry Writer II. It has a master index by last (maiden) name, and even has links for pictures (for those that I have pictures ready for). It won't be as nicely formatted, tree style (although it does have pedigree and descendant trees in a text format) as the main tree page, but it is a heck of lot easier for me to maintain than the one mentioned above, which will be worked on gradually. It should be noted that for image links on these pages, that when you click the "Images" link, you will be shown thumbnails of each picture. Click the picture to see the full size version in another window.
4) Unknown Photos - this page contains photos that are part of albums that I have found, or seen, that are family tree related, but nobody knows who or what they are. If you figure some of them out, please email me!
5) Boyle links pages - This page contains links to other Boyle related web sites, etc. that contain useful information, or possibly useful information but we aren't sure yet.
6) Peter Robinson information page - This page contains some information (and pictures) about Peter Robinson and his bringing of the Irish Settlers to Upper Canda in 1823 and 1825.
7) 1878-1978 Storey Farm Centennial Booklet. - This contains scans of 10 page booklet, and 4 page mini-family tree, that was handed out at the Centennial family reunion in Manitoba in 1878. Contains a picture of Charles Storey & his wife Margaret (nee Boyle) in front of their main house from 1901 until it was destroyed by a fire in March, 1947.
8) Boyle BULLetins page - this contains downloadable, searchable PDF versions of the famous Boyle BULLetins genealogy newsletter that Garvin Boyle of Ontario put out from 1983-1986(?). Issues will be added as I get time to convert them to searchable PDF's.
9) Garvin Boyle's Genealogy website page - this is a link to Garvin Boyle's genealogy website, which includes scans of all the Boyle BULLetins he did in the 1980's, as well as history of the Boyle family, and tree information for other sides of his family. Garvin has been a source of a vast amount of the information on my site; his new site is definitely worth checking out.

If you have any comments, updates, corrections, etc. on any of the webpages here, please feel free to email me. If you have large, scanned pictures that could be used to update the site, please do not email them to this address; simply email me that you want to send them, and I will make arrangements with you to use a different email account to send them to, that can handle large file sizes.

This page is maintained by L. Curtis Boyle of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. I am not putting any copyrights on any of the information here, as I know how hard it was for me to find the information myself, and I would prefer to save someone else the trouble of doing it all again. However, I would like people who use the information (or images) here to give credit as to where they found it (a link would be nice :-), and if you have any additional information, that you please share it with me and others. Some of the information I have on here may be from copyrighted materials, and I will try to obtain permission (if it is possible to get a hold of the original authors), or at the very least indicate where it was gotten. If I got it from active web pages, I will provide a link to that site, although I am going to try and keep copies of such images and/or information on my site as well (parts of such a site that are relevant to my site, anyways), so that if such a site goes down or disappears, the information/images are not lost.

Active contributors at this point so far are (and this does not mean I have had a chance to actually put up any of the information that they have provided yet): Mary Allen, Trish Baloun, Brandy Barclay, Lynn Benn, Gillan Berry, Kathy Bibby, Cliff Boyle, Danny Boyle, Garvin Boyle, Jack Boyle, Keith Boyle, Kyle Boyle, L.
