  1. Good info. My Great Great Grandfather is Zach Lerat- brother too Marie Adele Lerat. So Napoleon is my relative ..likely you as well. Keep up the good work…I’m currently doing research for my family as well. 12 Ancestry DNA kits into my new hobby!..

  2. Hi Kaila,
    I happened upon your page because I’m looking for Dauphin newspaper archives. My grandfather was born there, May 12, 1940… possibly out of wedlock. But I would like to find out if there was a birth notice in the local paper, The Dauphin Herald, as I understand.
    I appreciate your assistance!

  3. What a fun way to archive your genealogy. I came across your page because I am trying to learn about mine as well. My Grandmother Mary Drewniak had a connection to Nellie Dowbush of Sifton. Searching the name Dowbush brought me to your page. Have fun and perhaps we’ll cross paths again.

  4. Thank you for compiling such useful and fascinating information of our history! The website address for The Winipegosis Historical Society has recently changed. Can you please update it to winnipegosismuseums.ca? Thanks!
