Nancy, here's a # for Canada for Family Search which is free & has a live chat. They are the largest archives & software in the world--will do searches of records automatically whenever you enter a name: 1-866-406-1830   Also have fan charts etc

Nancy, people who are into family history are so wild about it that any number you call will put you onto a person closer to you if they are too far for a visit. Especially the Society or church people. Doesn't matter if the # is one in the states or Canada to start with because they will redirect till you get what you want. Talking is the main thing to get started (before garden season comes around again). They will be excited for you & your old photos. . .

Not sure if we will get any snow. Just as long as not a dump of snow or freezing rain. My wild rabbit is back. it knows no guest dog now. I guess an in day whatever except when I go to nearby cafe for a green tea and a yummy nibble from baking.

It warmed up enough to go to town finally.Got a couple packs of organic seed. I've gone thru 3 seed catalogs and marked my wish list.

That is heading up through South BC and heading to Calgary, hope it bypasses Medicine Hat, AB. Got dead TV in van. Spoiling my adopted cat, but whatever her life was before rescue I hope to have her have a better life. Got to clean litter box. Well don't have to go out clean dog poop. I am still emptying full bucket used coffee all over yard. My wild rabbit is back, guest dog gone.

Still cold & snowy here. I planted lettuce and put up more wire tiered hanging baskets on the porch. Did it early this morning before going to sleep. I have been horrible about keeping late night early morning hours and not getting anything done. GRRRR I HATE WINTER! SAD takes over and I want to just  sit and wach tv or compuer. Went to the end of driveway in snow last night to get mail. Checked the road and it was a slick of ice. Going to go see if I can get out of here today as running out of food good water allergy pills eic. Went out to check food in mini shelf greenhouses the other day. It was so cold I didn't even have the  inclinaton to fight the zipper on the door to open it.

Yes William, I am looking forward to these lengthening days! Too dark & too short, my Christmas lights stay up for another month. The unheated greenhouse gets used for storage during winter months so the neighbors have to get on board too & back their stuff out before I can turn the lights on in there. When the tulips begin to pop up, I start pestering them. I use 2 large seed heating mats in April. They threaten to take the whole thing down & bring it across the street to me but where would I put it? We have trees, trees, trees, except in the driveway! They have all the open garden space & do not use it because they both work full time & go off on the Harley on weekends.

Nancy, you have two free weeks on There is a live chat person any time now that could help you through. Also, if that is not enough help, then each Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormon) ward has family history specialists. In your area you have assigned missionaries that will know the names & #s for these folks so get in contact with anyone in the phone book or even the number on a TV ad which will eventually percolate you right to the live person you want to help you. I know because I am one of those people in our ward. We love our "work" past midnight & into the wee hours. Just please don't interrupt our internet service. . .

It is this missing relative cousin's mother forgot to put in and messes up my paperwork done so far. I need someone to show in person.

While out I got to get more goat's milk, was told soy milk not good at my age. Cannot drink Lactose, cow's milk and rice milk not great. Got to get moving, if got to get to church  before my 9:30am as long as van starts.

Found a bundle of 3 cookbooks and looked through first one inside cover, hard and has old fashioned seed pkts, the recipes are great haven't tried any yet. The books are from Sharon Springs, NY. Get separate or get bundle. Want to go there in person and close by to where roots began when landed in America. PBS had a program on and I ordered the DVD and stuffy turkey that makes turkey noise. Bye for now.
