Debbie, thank you so much for this info. I have been researching both of my mother and father's ancestry for two years now, off and on. I would appreciate anything you can provide on my mother's family in Sarnia. I do have some death extracts and birth records. I was able to find some of this through Ancestry.com, but I ran out of funds to pay for that site. My brother just invited me to this site and so I just started yesterday. I'm very impressed with the info. sent to me. I know I will have a thousand more things to ask you and hope you will not mind. I'm very proud of my Canadian ancestry and hope to visit Sarnia one day. I'm retired and live in Las Vegas.
Thanks again and I'll take whatever you send my way and appreciate your help so very much. Ken
