I've blogged you and posted...made a trip to vancouver,b.c last weekend and would have liked to share family history with your extended family which you say is large but found only one name in phonebook. His family is from New York and he isn't interested in history in the slightest. Did make contact in Seattle and Vancouver Powries.
I go to great effort to research and share for free and began this message board with that purpose. Unlike most who write you live in close proximity to me.
It's such a rare name, 20-30 is a feast to me...please write me back. I'll promise you dinner and a brew!
