Well, 2011 is looking good so far! My computer is virus-free and I have completed a letter to my Mama's great nephew. I am hoping he will contact me and we can share our common lineage. After all his great grandfather is no other than Thomas Walter CANTY. I'm sure he and his family would like to know more about this mystery man as well.
I have had the fun and excitement recently of looking up old newspaper articles which are on line. It was easy to pull up some information about my New England anscesters and so I'm off to see what the South has to offer.
