Hi Betty, I think your idea of a genealogy column is great! I was a
beneficiary of one in Lunenburg County, Nova Scotia last year, it is called
"Roots to the Past"
and is posted in the Lunenburg Progress Enterprise and the Bridgewater
Bulletin, in Nova Scotia. They put a few paragraphs in about a family, and
give your name and how to contact you. I found a whole missing branch of my
tree that way last July and 48 new relatives, some of whom I will meet this
year when I return to Nova Scotia. Barbara Shepard Smith, Middleboro, MA
