Unfortunately, i was not born at the time that my grandfather - your great grandfather passed away.As a result I cannot tell you much about the man myself.However, I will see what I can find out from my father.
You are very right that this is wierd, but also kind of cool!! I can't believe I located someone related to me that fast!
Also. my email is firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to email me so I can ask you some questions and stuff that i am sure you'd rather not post here (like where are you living, age, when did you move from Thunder Bay etc etc.) that would be great!
