Hi Everyone: This is a special note to all members
of the AFHS. We fast have a deadline coming up for CHINOOK and wonder if
any of you would like to take this opportunity to get some coverage of your
genealogy and family history?
Two areas you can take advantage of are:
1/ Queries - a listing of surnames you are seeking,
location and time period included - or the following example for difficult
BELL: Eliza BELL b 1841 Belfast IRE wf/o Joseph ARMSTRONG
who d 1885 in hotel fire in St George ON. She mvd to ON CA with CH.
She d 1917 in CA. Seek any info re sibs or prnts.
Ellen Kinghorn 146 Riverview Pt., SW, Calgary, Alberta T2C
Any responses we get from the queries will be published in
the next issue of CHINOOK.
2/ Ancestor's With Attitude: I recall a while back
there was a call for your favorite ancestor or this type of thing and we'd like
to bring it back to life...not the ancestor but the concept! You can
submit information and a photo about the ancestor you have in mind and
we'll publish it. Don't worry if you don't have a photo...it could even be
a symbol to show what kind of person they were. On cemetery
stones in Scotland I saw symbols for the type of work a person did in their
lifetime. It could be something like that...or even that.
Also, don't worry about the writing. The piece can
be edited if need be. Make the submission as long or as short as you
Please forward any submissions as soon as possible as
we have a deadline for copy September 12.
I'd like to announce this at the Monday meeting and know it is not as much lead
time as we would like. So, if you can tell any other members you know are
not on dist-gen, I'd really appreciate it. Even if we don't get allot for
the October issue, we can use them in the next three issues of
