March 10, 2011:

Thanks to Taylor Kennedy for the following. He mentioned to me that he has now been doing research on 
families and individuals in England and did I have any names to watch for while he was going through
English records? I mentioned to him that my Grandfather, Edward Lewis, was a British Home Child, 
and Taylor found a lot of material regarding his life in England, before he came to Ottawa in 1901.

More to come for this page.

Thanks very much for all of this, Taylor.
