name, date of birth, date of marriage, spouse, children, parents,

grandparent’s , aunts, uncles, etc. Anyone in your family that you have

research.

My 1992 article on the Prince Albert branch of Sask Genealogical Society

I'm taking the writing course in September, and one of the first things we're asked to do is talk about our writing experience. That reminded me about this story from 17 Oct 1992 that I wrote for the Prince Albert Daily Herald. It was three weeks into my first job after graduating from journalism school. Apparently, I hadn't yet learned the difference between "that" and "which." Oh, and I took the photo, too. …

KENNEDY - GLENCOE, ARGYLLSHIRE, SCOTLAND.
