Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats
I found a lot of my ancestory in a book put out by Pemmican press in Winnipeg, called "A Geneology of The First Metis Nation. It had my ancestors going back to the 1700's . I gave my dad a copy and he was up til daylight reading it. He knew a lot of the people in it including my great great grandfather born 1838 , died 1942, a buffalo hunter for 30 years. I met his son when he was 100, who grew up in Dumont's buffalo camps in the Cypress hills.
My Grandmothers mother was Cree her grandfather was Norwegian. We have geneology of the Norwegian connection going back to King Halvdan the Black year 722.
