Hi Donna
I am delighted to hear that my letter had arrived safely. I don't know if your father told you my connection. My great Aunt Bella Jane McKenzie, born in 1889 at Toreduff, Alves, Elgin, Morayshire, Scotland, was the wife of William J Olmstead. When I started researching the family tree none of my uncles had heard of their aunt, Bella Jane and it has taken me some time to find that she had emigrated to Canada. They will be even more thrilled that we have made contact and like me, would be keen to hear something about Bella Jane,her family and descendants. I note that your father is trying to contact Ruby. Do you know if any of her sister Muriel's descendants are in Winnipeg and are you in touch with any of them? Should you or your sister wish to contact me direct please do so.
