Our family name is Rogan, and I have 4 brothers living.  Would like to know more about the Oriel project. Grandfather Hugh Cuthbert and grandmother Martha were married in the early 30's; had one son, Ross; then separated. Grandfather remarried and had other children-I have never met them.  My father had six sons; two have passed on. One of the remaining brothers has two sons. We are second generation Canadians as far as I know.
