Yes my father is Jim from Marysville. However he now lives in Nelson, B.C.
I guess then that your father was recently in touch with my grandmother. I think she mentioned that he was in touch within the last three weeks. He was also in touch with my great-aunt Audrey, in Ontario. I think that she would have the most information that I know of on the Raffan ancestry. She visited her aunt Mary and cousin Gordon in Scotland in 1978. I don't know who she has kept in touch with since then. She doesn't have a computer but I have given the link to this site to her daughter who is going to keep her informed.
It is kind of neat that you are so close by. I have other relatives in the Crowsnest Pass. Perhaps sometime I could look you up. If I find any other information I will be sure to share it with you.
