      So - I've been too quiet, eh? Well, have to admit that I do a few other
      things beyond 1906 Census and respond to e-mail..... :-)

      So, here's the low-down on activities of possible interest to you folks
      (won't bore you with my Bylaws activities for another organization,
      progress on webdetails for the World Health Organization's designation
      of Calgary as a Safe City, etc.).

      Following are the files that have gone online since March 5 or so

      Subdist 1 - p. 123a-20a, 23a-30a (Mar 5)

      This subdisrict is almost complete - I expect the full set of pages will

      YES! Flin Flon!

      So ... I don't always acknowledge every e-mail as it arrives, or even
      every transcription. But, I'm documenting them as I go along, keeping a
      scorecard of how we're doing & plan to write once or twice a week
      letting you all know the nature of the progress being made.

      Here are the numeric facts:

      total pp %
      Prov pp trans'd done
      ---- ----- ------- ----
      AB 5025 841 16.7%
      SK 6850 377 5.5%
      MB 9400 117 1.2%
      Total 21275 1335 6.3%

      Overall - 6.43% of the pages are transcribed and online; in Alberta
      we've done 16.7%. Way to go!

      P.S. I have pp for the following areas that will be going on line in
      the next day or three.

      AB Distr #19 Subdistr 29a (Calgary City)
      AB Distr #19 Subdistr 29b (Calgary City)
      AB Distr #19 Subdistr 29d (Calgary City)
