OpenStreetMap

Descendants of former colleagues meet via OpenStreetMap a century later…

I go to the Toronto OpenStreetMap Enthusiasts group. So does mmather.

It turns out that mmather's grandfather, and my great-grandfather, were colleagues at the Royal Technical College in Glasgow (now The University of Strathclyde), Scotland. Just recently, my brother found our great-grandfather's hand-written application to become a member of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers from 1913. There on the page was my great-grandfather's signature — with mmather's grandfather's signature next to it as witness.

Small world indeed.
