Name of creator
Bert Seaman (1887-[after 1982]) wrote Jottings of the Past, a history of the Edrans, Manitoba area. He was born to settlers Edith Stone and Tom Seaman at Seamanville near Oak Point, Manitoba. He moved to Edrans, Manitoba with his parents and siblings in 1900. He moved to Parksville, BC after his wife Ethel (Essie) White died in 1963. Bert lived in Parksville until his death in 1983 in his 96th year.
Records have been presented to the Carberry Plains Archives in 1988 by the Carberry Plains Museum, which received it from persons unknown.
