      Hello everyone

      For those not following our news stories in Ontario, my
      little town of Midland was hit by a 5.5 earthquake on
      Wednesday afternoon and less than 5 hours later two
      tornadoes ripped into the town, wreaking quite a bit of
      havoc. Over 200 people are without homes and over 14,000
      lost power for 24 hours. Earthquakes and tornadoes are
      extremely rare in Ontario - the last tornado here was 25
      years ago and it hit 30 miles south of us. Earthquakes are
      normally little quivers, nothing noticeable at all but this
      one was strong enough to knock objects off our shelves.


      It's been a long haul but Volume 1 of The Peer Family in
      America is finally completed and available for purchase.
      It's been quite a journey - my grandmother was a PEER and
      because of her I started researching all branches of the
      Peer family in Ontario. That led to descendants in
      Michigan, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey and Illinois
      as well as Canada.

      The order form may be accessed at

      Here are some of the details:

      *The Peer Family in North America. V1 Jacob & Anne Peer,
      Immigrants from New Jersey to Upper Canada in 1796. A study

      bound 8.5x11. 108 p. ISBN: 978-0-9680744-3-5

      Subsequent volumes will provide details and the genealogy
      for up to 5 generations for each of the children of Jacob &
      Anne (Levi, Jacob Jr , Stephen, Marcy & Phoebe are 4
      generation genealogies; Philip & Edward are 5 generations;
      John is included in V. 1 )
