  • Hi All: On August 1st I also worked at our AFHS table at Fort Calgary, and once again experienced the enthusiasm and dedication which was so typical of Heather Jaremko. So I was truly shocked to see her obituary in today's Calgary Herald. My condolences to Andrew and to her children and grandchildren. We have lost a tireless volunteer and very capable worker in Heather. She was...

I will let you know what results and success we have. The...

  • Heather: An update about DNA would be a good idea. I recently received an e-mail from Sorenson Molecular Genealogy Foundation with an offer to receive information re mtDNA results for $19.50 until Oct. 31st. I have telephoned their number and keep getting a message saying that number is not available in our area. I don't know what that means because it is an 866 number and we...

  • Hi Ken: Some of our "vulnerable" seniors (namely an aunt who refused to share her children's birthdates and married names) do pass on. Then at the Memorial Service a grandson did share the chronology of what year each child was born and where the family were living at that time. (So I took notes unobtrusively during the service.) The married names were in the funeral bulletin. And...

  • Hi: Some time ago I found a link to a place where you could enter a date like 1914 and find out what a dollar in 1914 or any other year would be worth in today's dollars. But I did not bookmark it, and now cannot find it. For example, homesteaders paid a $10.00 filing fee. What would that be equivalent to in today's dollars? If someone could direct me to where I could find this, I...

  • Hello All: Regarding the 1911 Census, I have found my people and can read the information, but I would like to make a copy of part of the page. What I get is the whole page which has very tiny writing and not readable. Does anyone know how to enlarge a section and print out only that section? Any help would be appreciated. Mertie Beatty

  • Please note that your reply will now only go to the original sender Hi Xenia: We heard about your Grandparents and Father this morning, and it was very well done. Your poor Grandma -- separated from her daughter for 40 years! This is a great series, and I trust we'll hear many stories. May even offer to do my family's story.
