Now that's something I find intriguing. I don't do much hiking or boating but I enjoy it when I do. My brother, James Richard (Dick) likes outdoor activities like that too. He and his hiking friends would go to Canada with their canoes and camp out for a week living off the land. They did that almost annually until recently. I haven't heard him talk about it much lately.
I'm motoring along an isolated lake in the Yukon in that picture, headed toward an area we want to fish. Jody's in the bow with the camera. I'd be happy to be there now. As with Facebook, I'll probably neglect to check in most of the time. My spam software doesn't like Genealogy Wise's headers, so I've got to work on that before I can even get email notices of comments.
Hi Jane. Welcome to Genealogy Wise! My maiden name is Watson. I can only go back a few generations though. My great grandfather James Watson came through Ellis Island and his father Charles Watson soon followed. They settled in Oneida, New York.
