Chinook Serendipity Articles
- We are desperately working on the Chinook which needs to be at the printers on Monday. We have no serendipity articles as of yet. PLEASE, there must be some one who has a story to share. It doesn't have to be long - just a unique, serendipitous experience you have had doing family history research. A photo would be nice to accompany the article if possible.Thanks!Bev Rees
