Did your heritage family “come over on the boat” in the 16, 17, or 1800s? Were they some of the
original pioneers who carved out a life in Wellington County? Was your family part of the Dutch
immigration after the Second World War? Is your background of the Mennonite faith – or any
other religion that makes Wellington County a unique mix of traditions? Did you relocate to
Wellington in modern times when you or a parent changed or transferred with a job or
profession? Tell us your story.
