i have been trying for months now to find out how the silver islet cemetery looked around the time of the mine closing. have been to the cemetery recently, and while it is eerily pretty, there is almost nothing left of the 60 or so burial sites that were once there. it's a shame really. i would be very grateful if anyone had any info on the cemetery, or any suggestions on where to find the info. amazingly, the local libraries and even the net have been not at all helpful.
thanks a bundle! cheers!

I am looking for any information about my grandfather, Steven / Stephen Cadillac. He was born in winnipeg and brought his 4 children and wife, Pauline to Dysart where they lived for several years and my dad and siblings would tell me very little about Dysart. Apparently my grandpa was the sheriff, and undertaker in the teens of 1900. He apparently built the church and school house. My parents took my sister and I to Dysart when I was about 7 and we had dinner at the house my dad lived in. I fell in love with the little town. My aunts and uncle and my dad are all gone now and the dark secret came out. My grandpa used to beat his wife a lot as he was an alcoholic. He then shot himself in the head and my grandma packed up with 4 kids in tow and came to Vancouver with nothing. Has anybody got any stories of this? Thank you Barb Hall nee Cadillac

The Joust A Family Faire was a success! Although there wasn't a huge crowd, those who attended had a great time and helped to raise some money toward the continued running of the Cartier Community Centre and the Cartier Recreation Committee. There was a bit of rain so the joust, the race and the dance had to be held inside the centre, but games of skill, the sword and archery did take place outside... between the rain drops! There are already plans in the works for next year and hopes for better weather! Watch here for news of next year's Joust A Family Faire.

I need your help!
My name is Melody and in 1977, I was with my mother in Rocklyn. She was, if I remember right, opening an arena. Her name was Marg Osburne and she passed away that night. There were some wonderful people who helped us that night but unfortunatly, my memories after she died are not very good. There was a family who took us out to their farm later and I would like to contact them to say thank you. Anyone who could point me in the direction would be great.
Thank you

Hi, My family and I just moved here from Saint John 2 months ago. I really think it is a beautiful place. I was wondering where the community meets and what sort of things they do together. I keep getting Tamouth news or Stanley but I don't seem to hear too much about Durham.

I am searching for relatives in this area...Joseph Aquela Proulx...father perhaps Joe/Joseph Proulx and his mothers name started with a V, perhaps Victoria...He was born around 1892 and came to the US aboard the D&W Ferry. He lived with an uncle(that was supposedly wealthy before leaving to come to the US) because his mother passed away and his father remarried and he disliked his stepmother(this was the story in our family) He wrote to a sister back in Canada perhaps a Catherine or Victoria...All the information that we have is very vague..I am looking to find anything. My grandfather is in his 80's and I would love to provide him with any information regarding his fathers side of the family...Please Help!

I am trying to find Pat and Gerald Letourneau. I knew Pat when we both worked in Fort McMurray, Alberta. Pat sang at my wedding. We are coming back to Edmonton from Mexico to redo our vows after 20 years of marriage. We want to invite Pat and Gerald to join us and see if Pat would do us the honor again of singing for us. If anyone knows Pat and Gerald could you ask them to contact me. My email address is marie@focusonmexico.com and I have a Toronto Vonage phone number (1-416-619-9310) that rings into our home in Lake Chapala Mexico. Thank you if you can help. Appreciate it. Marie

GENEALOGY INFORMATION

This is for GENEALOGY information on my family that is buried in the "Cimetiere Ste-Famille de Kenogami". I am looking for someone that could photograph this burial site for me.

My fathers name is Joseph "Roger" Dery, born February 3, 1924, died June 2, 1967. His parents Hidola and Yvonne (Fortin) Dery, uncle E. Devost are all buried side by side plots. I would appreciate the area photographed either by "digital" or "film". And I would be willing to pay a fee for this.

I hope that you will be able to help me with my request. This is very important to me and greatly appreciate your help.

Thank you.

I am looking for information on a Mr. Earl Bowers who was an elderly farmer from Kemptville, Ontario in the 1950's and 1960's. He would take an annual vacation to Vancouver on the Canadian National RR. I know he also was a fiddle player. Any other information would be welcome as I am writing a story based on him as a character and I would like to know more.

Thank you,
