  1. Oh Pat, shame on you for saying 'Start searching the War of 1812 now!' Of course I followed your instructions and searched for several people who I think might have been involved in that war, when what I'm supposed to be doing right now is concentrating on my great-grandparents in Saskatchewan in the 1900s! How am I supposed to stay focused, with you tempting me like this?!!! LOL Thanks for the tip!
