One of my friends is looking for some of his maternal ancestors down in Nova Scotia. Ron is planning a visit there in April.
I met Ron back in 2011 and I talked about our meeting here. I have posted many articles about Ron and I, even pictures.
Ron is quite a nice guy.
The only problem with Ron is his addiction to genealogy.
I have thought of starting GA (Genealogist Anonymous… pun intended), but I think Ron and I are hopeless cases.
Ron is going to find some of his roots in Nova Scotia. I have been there in 1978 and I visited Louisbourg two days in a row. I will always remember that trip because a guide told me that usually they get rain most of the time.
My two days there were sunny!
Ron is going to Nova Scotia to find his grandmother’s roots. She is Alfreida Melançon, daughter of William Melançon or Melanson and Clara Doucet.
Ron was stuck there with his bulldozer.
I have been trying since Monday to lend him a helping hand and finding clues about William Melanson using censuses even though they are not 100% reliable.
This search is in fact a story in itself.
About the Civil War, I will post an article on the battle of Golding’s Farm Monday morning.
I hope you are not too tired reading about the battles Alexander Bennett was in because you know I could understand how you feel about that war.
