Exciting News! Canadian Census online!!
- Hi everyone
It's been awhile since I wrote this newsletter but I've had some glitches in my computer setup. Right now I am working on a laptop with a very tiny screen! That makes it difficult for me to see what I'm writing because of my Cogan's Dystrophy (a condition of the cornea of the eye).
I won't have my usual 24" monitor for a few more days so I thought I better struggle along as best I could to get this newsletter out today. The exciting news about the complete Canadian census being online just won't wait any longer! So please bear with me and forgive any typos I might make.
Here is what is happening in the genealogy community
