Does anyone out there have photos of Trois-Pistoles to share? Or do you know where on the web I might see photos of this town? My dad was born there in 1903 and I would like to see what the place looks like now or looked like in 1903.

It would be very helpful for my genealogy research. Are there any Roy's in the area? My dad's name was Charles E. Roy. His father had same name and his mom was Anna Rioux. They immigrated to the U.S. when my dad was only 2 yrs. old and settled in Berlin, N.H. USA.

Thank you for any suggestions you may have. Pls. send emails to me at cocowriter@yahoo.com Please use Trois Pistoles on Subject line.

Merci Beaucoup

I'm new here and have been living out on wood Lake.The winter was cold and long.. Not so bad this year so they say. Alot of picture oppertunity. The snow fell for what felt like every day.Fresh snow on the trees along the highways, frozen walls of granite looking as if they were chuncks of blue coloured glass. They talked about the comming of the bugs like it was nuclear disaster. The preperations and precations to take. These people are serious about their bugs. And so they were right my son's face was so swelled up from the black flies I was embassed to take him into town..People whispered and recalled when they had the chicken pox...I didn't offer to tell them the facts. The Muskoka room took on a whole new importace in one of the nessary had to haves in the purchase of our new home. It was a mad dash to get from indoors to the some what safety of your vehical. Now living right in town enjoying the many beaches here ,the summer time looks like its going to be so much more enjoyable.

New Entery.
Visited Dungannon June 15 2007, one day before the Big Tractor Pull which is approx 16 years since the last visit. The Village looked deserted like a ghost town. Buildings deserted and boarded. The odd car travelling through.
The next day would be different with the Tractor Pull as many people will be there to enjoy the event. Would have liked to stay to see it, however my wife was not feeling well so we headed back to Windsor that night.
I did have a change to take some photographs that I will post in the near future.
If you would like to contact me and share some information , stories ect., my E-mail Address is gator_attact_101@yahoo.ca

I was born in Woodstock and lived there until I was 9.
I will always remember my childhood friends that I had there, and the special times with my dad.
Swimming lessons at the YMCA, eating at A&W (served in our Volkswagen Beetle), visiting my neighbors who will always be special to me, the swans at the park, and Springbank Public School.
And who could forget the cow statue!!!
My list goes on and on.....
I still miss Woodstock and it will always have a huge chunk of my heart!

The photograph pictured as a postcard shows my house the second from the left...it is rumoured that it was moved from Stoney Island, I am wondering if anyone knows anything about that?? It has a widows watch on the east...side which would make sense if the house was moved as it does not over look the water from where the house stands at this time. When in the attic 2 summers ago we found alot of old classroom books from early 1900's...very interesting....

Am looking for a garbage disposal bin to rent to empty out a house to take things to the local landfill site. Does the town of Harriston have such a system? We would like to have the dumpster brought in on a Friday and removed on a Monday and we would fill it with all the garbage over the weekend. Need to empty out a house that has been sold and have no way of getting things to the dump. Any suggestions anyone??? Thanks

We're moving to Ontario from Vancouver and are thinking about buying in the old part of Unionville. But what about all the festivals and having so many people around almost every weekend? Do the locals resent this? Is there conflict between the merchants/residents and politicians over this issue?

thanks for any insights.

I spent two years in the town of Codette, I loved meeting the people and having them be so friendly, warm, helpful and accepting. I learned that, that is how people should treat people everywhere and I endevor every day to teach others the secrets of a happy community. Thank you to all and I hope to some day visit you all again.
