Subject: Introduction - New Member in Toronto!
Forwarded by Moderator - Welcome Janice!


I'm an enthusiastic traveller -- of the armchair variety when necessary. Recent trips (since summer of 2000) include North Carolina, Florida, Australia and -- best of all -- a five-week driving holiday through Western Europe.

This last trip was with my parents who were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. I planned and booked everything via the Internet and we had a spectacular time. My photos and travelogue are at; User ID janice.

I don't have children of my own, but I do borrow my brothers' kids as often as possible. I've promised each of them a big trip around the time of their 12th birthdays. I took Greg to Vancouver and Victoria (British Columbia, Canada). Alyssa and I went to San Francisco (California, USA). Now, I'm planning Megan's trip to Paris, France (Spring 2003). Two down, three to go. Nick is currently favouring London as his destination in 2004. Hilary, who is still only eight, thinks we should go to Disney World. I still have a few years to broaden her horizons.

One of the most interesting aspects of my European travels has been including genealogical research and experiences along the way.

I look forward to sharing information with and acquiring helpful tips from other members.
