Re: James Spence

Thanks very much for sending me that stuff. After a quick review, somehow I'm not inclined to put much credence in that outline. It looks like just a bunch of notes and references that someone hastily jotted down when they visited the archives. The individual people in it are only vaguely and indire...

Re: McDonalds Of Lewis and Red River

Just by coincidence I am finishing a narrative on James SPENCE and will be posting under Ancestors in the next few days. He is also an ancestor of my sister-in-law (See John Da...

Re: ASHAM

Sorry Don, that one has me stumped too. I have checked through the online information from the Library of Archives Canada with no luck. HBC Archives online, again no luck. Can't seem to come up with anything using Google searches, etc. Hopefully someone out there will see this and come to our assist...

ASHAM

Message from Don Larsen: Hi Gary - we have talked before via your Peter Fidler board. Interestingly, because of your board I was able to make contact with an estranged 1st cousin, now living in Calgary (I am in Winnipeg). I can see you have done a lot of work connecting the ASHAM family to the James...
