I have already emailed you through my hotmail account. I did some further checking and the Raffans that you speak of on genealogy.com are relatives of mine as well. I found a family tree made by my grandmother and it matches what you have listed in the website. Walter Brodie Raffan was my great grandfather, his parents were Gordon Raffan and Christina Smith. Gordon's parents were also Gordon Raffan and Mary Ann (Bowie) this is how my grandmother spells it. My grandmother just recently passed away but her two siblings may have other information on the rest of the family if you are interested. If Peter Hays was your father then that would make you a cousin to my grandmother. Therefore her surviving siblings are also your cousins. Quite a neat thing really. Do you have relatives in Three Hills? Or the Crowsnest Pass?
