    I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the interview with Marcel Pronovost and hearing the stories of his seventeenth-century voyageur ancestor. Each family story is unique, but there is also a lot that those who lived in New France in the 17th-century had in common. His stories resonate with me. I agree with you, Sandy, that while our ancestors led ordinary lives, from this distance they are quite extraordinary!

    And your computer woes. Scary! A lesson for all of us to back up, back up, back up.
