Almost every chapter mentions a person or organization that fits into my
family history. George Stanley who wrote about his teacher Mr. Henry Luck
might have been a classmate of Auntie Flo at Connaught School.
I wish more people who came west to work for the early pioneers had been
encouraged to write their memoirs. Didn't know enough local history myself
to ask my grandparents the most important questions when I started in 1967.
Their cousins are in the census but I have few stories of their day to day
life or their associations with local organizations.
