Family history

My grandfather Saiichiro Nagata Higo was born June 17, 1876 in the ninth year of the Meiji era.  He emigrated to Canada in 1904 but later returned to Japan to marry Yui Higo (born September 30, 1886) in 1912.

Both returned to Canada, residing at Acme Cannery on Sea Island, and Grandfather Higo became a fisherman with Grandmother Yui working in the cannery and also working in a nearby farm.  My father Yukio Frank Higo was born in 1918 on Sea Island.
