It's been several months since my last posting about the Prince Edward Island Surname List ( http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~canada/pei.htmhttp://homepages.rootsweb.com/~canada/pei.htm ) and since many people are new to the internet - especially at this time of year with people who just got computers and/or the Internet for Christmas and are just discovering the wonderful world of the internet and how much it can help in researching one's roots, I thought I would post a message about the P.E.I. Surname List.
