Michael Currie, 2018

Michael Bruce Currie (Thai [1]: ไมเคิล บรูซ เคอรี่) (born 8 June 1982) is a Canadian man.

Early life

He was born 8 June 1982 in London, Ontario, to Ron Currie and Mary Ann Currie. The eponym of his middle name is his mother's father, Bruce Newman.

At the time of his birth, his mother had just completed law school at the University of Western Ontario. A month after his birth, he moved permanently with his mother and father to Ron's hometown of Thunder Bay, Ontario. [2]

His sister Carolyn was born 2 February 1985.

With his parents and sister he spent a year in Dijon, France, from Fall 1987 to Spring 1988, and during this time he attended an all-french school.

Besides this stint, he spent his formative years in Thunder Bay, attending Pine Street School from Kindergarten until Grade 6, Gron Morgan School from Grade 7 to Grade 8, and Hammarskjold High School from Grade 9 until his Ontario Academic Credit (OAC, or Grade 13) year. He graduated from high school in June 2001.

In May 2001 Currie won an honourable mention in the BP/EUI Essay Contest.

In July 2001 Currie attended Shad Valley, at the Dalhousie University campus.

From September 2001 Currie attended the Universty of Waterloo. He received his degree in Mathematical Sciences in Spring 2007.


Michael has one sister, Carolyn Trottier. Total people in his immediate family: 4 (Ron Currie, Mary Ann Currie, Carolyn Trottier, Michael Currie). We could also add Maxime Trottier and Michael's nephews Cole Trottier and Bentley Trottier, for a total of 7, 6 of whom are related by blood.

Michael has twelve first cousins:

Branch Michael's grandparents Siblings of Michael's parents Spouses of Michael's parents' siblings First cousins Spouses of first cousins Children of first cousins
Currie Jack Currie, Lucy Currie Bill Currie, Doug Currie Eleanor Currie, Loraine Currie 4: Ian Currie, Jeff Currie, Janet Kelk, Dave Currie 4: Jasmine Currie, Bonnie Currie, Owen Kelk, Jackie Currie 7: Grady Currie, Abbey Currie, Jacob Kelk, Alex Kelk, Liam Kelk, Samuel Currie, Theo Currie
Newman Bruce Newman, Ruth Newman Sandra Kenzie, Lynn Newman Jim Kenzie, Mike Atherton 8: Alex Atherton, Andrew Atherton, Vanessa Atherton, Stephen Atherton, Megan Kenzie, Meredith Kenzie, Laura Kenzie, Patrick Kenzie 6: Jon Vernon, Tim Ellis, Jonathan Van Viegen, Monique Labelle, Alison Ward, Samantha Gray 7: Benjamin Atherton, Holly Atherton, Bridget Atherton, Dominic Atherton, Brynn Ellis, Aria Van Viegen, Charlotte Van Viegen

This is a cumulative total of 28 individuals. It's notable that while all grandparents are dead, all the others are still alive and none have had divorces.

21 on the Currie side, and 27 on the Newman side, for a total of 48. Adding immediate family gives 55, of which 15 are not blood relations.

Michael has about fifty second cousins:

Branch Michael's great grandparents Siblings of Michael's grandparents Cousins of Michael's parents Second Cousins
Currie Alex Currie, Anna Currie Clyde Currie, Neill Currie, Marian Gillis, Flora Heylar, Norma Currie Allan Currie, Marilyn Hermiston, Bruce Currie, Mike Gillis, Greg Gillis, Wayne Gillis, Lillias Bjornson, Neill Heylar, Susan Shoesmith 16 (+4 adopted): June Currie, Michael Allan Currie, Ian John Currie, Jason Currie, Phoenix Gillis, Veronica Gillis, Grace Gillis, Kathryn Gillis, Lisa Bjornson, Sean Bjornson, Kitt Bjornson, Lee Bjornson, Rodney Heylar, Stacey Heylar, Adam Shoesmith, Kevin Shoesmith
Cooke John Cooke, Rose Cooke Eva Bate, Edna Buxton, Ernie Cooke, Ann Ogden, Rosalind Foot Jack Bate, Thomas Bate, Vivian Shannon, Betty Buxton, Lloyd Cooke, Marjorie Cooke, Robert Cooke, Bryan Ogden, Don Foot, Joanne Foot Deborah Shannon, ?
Newman Clint Newman, Eugenia Newman Jack Newman, Gene Newman Janet Newman, David Newman, Tom Newman, Karen Furlich 7: Mara Furlich, Michelle Furlich, Nicholas Furlich, Samantha Furlich, Michael Newman, David Newman's two girls
Coulter Joseph Coulter, Williamina Bessie Coulter Wes Coulter, Ken Coulter, Hubert Coulter, Everett Coulter, Elaine Luet, Ian Coulter Jeff Coulter, Hugh Coulter, Robin Coulter, Laddie Coulter, Stephanie Luet, Joel Luet, Karen Luet, Tim Luet, Stephen Coulter, Janis Coulter, David Coulter 15: Dylan Coulter, Brittany Coulter, Marlee Coulter, Jennifer Wesley, Ann Benstead, Carter Wesley, Cohen Wesley, Robert Gray, Laura Gray, Shawn Gray, Nicholas Gray, Christoff Neuland, Lynnea Neuland, Ella Coulter, Brin Coulter

Including all aunts, uncles, grandparents, grandaunts, granduncles, great grandparents, and 2nd cousins once removed, that is 8 + 18 + perhaps 12 cousins more for each side, so perhaps another 50 at least. So his 2nd cousin tree of relations, containing the collective descendants of Alex Currie, John Cooke, Clint Newman, and Joseph Coulter, contains about 100 - 110 individuals.

    • 3rd Cousins**

It's likely Michael has perhaps 300 third cousins, for a total number of relatives out to that level including all descendants, reaching a figure as high as 600.
