Someday I will find PEI years I need! and someday I will find Ontario with the years I need. But, my ancestors didn't own land, Didn't belong to the society that got their names in the paper,were not into politics. All they did that I can find is move every couple of years and have a new baby. I did get real lucky last year and connected one set of grandparents to Pvt. John Clark who went to PEI with Holland to survey. We've only been looking since the 1950's. Hope springs eternal!
