My sister forwarded this to me. Perhaps she responded as well. Our family lived in Montreal for a generation or two before moving to Chicago around the turn of the century. Originally our line of Mavers hailed from Arbroath, Scotland. We have an extensive genealogy somewhere in the house--I'll have to dig to find it. Also, when applying for a hotmail address, I stumbled upon a family of Mavers that live in Hobart Tasmania. They came from Scotland in the mid-19th century. It's a pretty safe bet that we're all related. I will seek out our genealogy and look for William Maver.
