Hugh - your request is perfectly reasonable. By copy of this I'll make
your request known to our local distribution list (200+ participants)
and I'll also cc our magazine editor (Chinook) who can talk with you
about posting query in it.
However, I've not run across anyone seeking this name and don't know how
much success you'll find. Good fortune to you.
P.S. see also the results of a search on our website:
P.P.S. in the last couple of days, it just so happens that a little
girl with surname "Disney" made the news in Calgary. She apparently was
out with a friend who returned her to the apartment block complex where
she lived - but dropped her off at the wrong building/apt. The woman at
the door took the little girl in even though they didn't know each other
- because the woman didn't think the man looked trustworthy. The little
girl had been reported MISSING to the police ... and reconnected to
family before long.
