I was born on August 09, 1963. My father's family lived mainly out west(I believe), years ago Joseph passed away. I believe this was in the eighties or late seventies. There was some family conflict regarding a large mansion type home in saskatchewan. Some family had been living there and wanted to remain. My mother once told me that Joseph had willed the home to her and that she did not accept it as this was being disputed by family. I recall the name of my little sister Celeste or close to this(28 yrs ago). She was born in Cobalt Ontario, I lived with my Dad for a nine month period there. His wife's name was Gaetan (spelling?). My Dad tried to get in the army in the forties but was a little too young, I believe my mother said he was thirteen years old at the time he tried to enlist. I currently live in Kenora Ontario but have spent most of my life in Thunder Bay, Ontario. DaveD
