From on Sunday, 16 January, 2011,

Elizabeth: In 1998 Eric & I travelled through Victoria stopping at Colac as I was researching FULTON from Fenwick, Ayrshire, Scotland. On returning to BC I managed to obtain copies of letters sent by these settlers to family in Fenwick. If you are interested I compiled these in booklet form (100+ pages) and have them as a large Word file & could easily send them to you.
Below is my info on the FULTONS - DOROTHY
