I am hoping you may be
able to help me with some information on La Patrie. My mother, Eydie
Lanthier (and husband, Pierre Lanthier) have a La Patrie P.O. Box, but
they live in a more rural area, in the mountains near a ski resort area.

I am a former resident of New Orleans who has been displaced by the
Katrina & Rita disasters. I am currently living in New Mexico, and I am
desperate to get in touch with my mother, who has no idea where I am
living now. I have not been in touch with her since October of 2005. I
have no current address for her, and she has no phone.

I don't speak French, so it may be hard for me to reach any agencies
unless they can understand English. If you have ANY ideas on any agencies
I may contact, please let me know. I am
trying anyting to reach my mom. Thank you for any help. Blessings to you.

Sincerely,
Jamie Joy Gatto

Sarnia is the best kept secret in all of Ontario.
I live in fear that the GTA crowd will discover our beautiful beaches and waterways and from then on summer week-ends in Sarnia would loose their laid back charm and tranquility.
I hope the GTA crowd will never find out what the Detroit week-enders have discovered about the Sarnia area already.

For the past 15 years or so, I have owned a cottage on the bay and the river in Campbellton. I have come to call it "My Piece of Heaven." I find the town quiet, peaceful, friendly, and very picturesque. I have made some very nice friends there and hopefully one day I will retire there.

Hi,
I am looking for information about Carol Ann Carter (the name might not be exactly right) who was the mother of James Hill. This is for my genealogical records. Supposedly she passed away about 1980 but I would like to confirm this and research her family background for my family tree.

endako is a small town in the middle of no where
if you blink you will miss nothing.


I lived in endako all my childlife, now that im an adult i dont
live there anymore.

There is nothing in endako , just a small bar. Most of the residents of endako and elderly,they are nice, but they like there quite.

there are a lot of nice lakes behind endako, great fishing and beautiful campsites, you would need a map to find your way around the back woods.

Enjoy your self while you are there. and come back if you like it.

you will find endako on high way 97 just past fraser lake.

Beaconsfield council has just voted themselves a raise of 20% and this is just after one year in council!
The last time there was a riase in salaries was 10 years ago.
The mayor said that the job is worth more now.
IT was a close vote - 4 to 3 with the mayor casting the deciding vote. Needless to say the citizens were furious, especially since taxes went up an average of 38% last year. The mayor has no shame. He is now making 35K a year PLUS he makes more money becuase he's on an agglomeratin council with the central city, plus ona few other committees so he's making close to - what some estimate is 70K.
Nice job idf you can get it.

Fauquier now has broadband Internet service. We have 2 domain names, arrowbridge.com and arrowbridge.ca. We currently have 20 users on-line, expecting 30 total on a fiber-optic E10 service supplied by Telus. The network is operated by the Fauquier Communications Center Society, a registered society composed of volunteers from the community. Public access to broadband service is available at the Communications Center, formerly the school house, where the broadband tower is located.

I am a descendant of Peter Michael Clair (my grandfather) who was married to Ida (Edberg) Clair. My father was James Kay Clair and his only sibling was Selina Clair.

In the 1960's my father traced his ancestory to Clair New Brunswick and found his family. My father and his sister were adopted when they were very young due to the fact that their mother Ida Edberg Clair had died during the flu epidemic in 1918-1919. Their father Peter Clair also died at a very young age. At the time of their deaths they were living in Morris Minnesota. I do believe, that my great grandfather (father of Peter Michael Clair) was the immigrant that settled (and how the town got its name) I have lost track of cousins and family that my father James Clair had connected with in the 60's and continued to write to until he died in 2001. I am looking for any family Clair, or Michaud? I can be contacted by e-mail

The Swastika Gold Mine was incorporated on Jan. 6, 1908 by the Tavistock Mining Partnership. The claims were staked by James and William Dusty in the fall of 1907. The siding on the Temiskaming and Northern Ontario Railway was subsequently called Swastika. Prospectors and miners flooded into the area along with Mr. Morrison who had a farm and place for staying over near the railway line. The Lucky Cross Mine was started nearby and the community continued to grow. Swastika will be celebrating one hundred years in 2008. The name for the mine and community was related to the good luck symbol in use at that time. During WWII the Provincial Government attempted to rename the community Winston as they felt the name Swastika was in bad odour. The men and women of the community objected and the name did not stick. Swastika is a small residential community proud of its heritage and community. We hope others will help us celebrate our Canadian heritage.

A beautiful place to be as a child with my older Brother Ronald Arbeau standing in the Mirimichi River. He had a little fishing pole and all of a sudden said to me don't look down. There were 2 leeches going up my leg. He took his pole and whipped them off. We had a lot of fun there and loved to cross the old swinging bridge that spanned the Mirimichi. My Brother is asleep in Jesus now. He has 5 boy's who have children in Canada. I remember the gorgeous huge pine trees which stood stately behind my Grandparents house. A short way down the bank was a cold ground spring handy to the Mirimichi River, my Grandmother kept her butter and cold milk in. I remember my Grandfather dried his beans upstairs in the house where my Brother and I slept. My Grandfather's name was Robert Arbeau and Grandmother's name, Dora May Arbeau. I was told Her Mom was a Green. I loved them.
My e-mail is oceanmelodys4_ever@yahoo.ca
I would love to get history on both names. Thanks,Faye Arbou

I grew up in Gallants, at the time I lived there it was a logging community. Although times were hard for my family, life was pure, clean & wholesome. A place where I as an adult would have loved to have raised my son.
Money wasn't an option growing up because no one had any. It was a place where everyone knew everone, where people helped one another & didn't expect anything in return. where children played together, in a secure place.
& everyone was your parents, where doors we never locked, & your neighbour was just as much at home in your place as he was in his own.
A beautiful place to live. At that time... as with everythiing else times change and people currently use this community for a haven to escape the pressures of nearby cities. I settled in Alberta, but long for home which I haven't seen for 27 years. How fast time goes by.
