Hello everyone. My name is George Fraser a former Alder Pointer who now resides in Brighton, On. I am just about ready to retire full time and have always wanted to come up with some such idea that may put one Alder Pointer in contact with another. I want to do this in a very private way so that I will not pass information to anyone who does not wish to have it sent out. I just want to act as a go between. For example, someone might have a question about a particular item so they can contact me and I will attempt to get the answer and get back to them. In other words a free flow of information between individuals with an interest in Alder Point.
I thought by creating a BLOG such as this I could reach as many Alder Pointers who live there, or who at one time lived there, had or have relatives still there or who are just wannabee Alder Pointers. I recently wrote a brief history, “Alder Point” which generated a lot of interest and caused me to think that we may have all kinds of Alder Pointers who have moved ‘away’ who might be interested in this type of BLOG.
What I intend to do is pass along from time to time interesting articles, OBITS, historical information, genealogical information and general information that could be sent to me for publication on my BLOG that others on the list may find interesting. I would aim to generate at least one BLOG per week so as not to get too boring.
Anyone wishing to contact me with information about their family or requesting information about family I would review and so long as it is in good taste send it out on my BLOG for input. Individuals may from time to time wish to contact a person off-line and I would also accommodate such a request and connect two people who may wish to communicate with each other but not wish to go public. I will never send out an e-mail address without the permission of it’s owner – I promise – like we used to say at school “help me God bye”.
Now to get started I will need as many of your e-mail addresses as I can muster. So please, at your convenience send me your e-mail address as well and e-mail addresses for others you might think have an interest and I will include you and them in my Alder Point News List.
