I have a handmade violin by E.W. Shrubsole. It was my fathers. The violin was made in 1968 and is numbered. It is from Sault Ste Marie Ontario..... It is a beautiful violin.......

>hi, my great grandfather was Edgerton Shrubsole. Mary Shrubsole (his daughter) was my Grandmother. I don't know much about these kind of postings but thought I'd try to connect . I know my great aunt (Ruth Black nee Shrubsole) lived on St. Joseph's Island 10 years ago. I have not been in contact with her since then so she could have moved by now.
Edgerton Shrubsole was a violin maker and Mary was a concert master in the Toronto symphony orchestra. My daughter plays violin now and I would like to someday buy her one of the violins that edgerton made. So if you still have it, please don't sell it.
