Hello. I just came across this board and it is very interesting. I'm from Hamilton Ontario and I have researched my family tree (with help) up till the American Revolution. Now I am stuck. I ran across the Almas name in a book about Vlad the Impaler, also known as Dracula. Almas was once a region of Transylvania the book said. If anyone wants to email me I will give you as much info as I can. The library here has a wonderful special collections room where one can access old documents.
