Re: Arcadia, Orkadians, Acadia(ns)
Still alive and forever sifting through for interesting
information! and there's lots..... :)
I got an interesting email the other day from a "cousin" of
mine.....here's the clip:
Talked to my brother last night,his
name is Donald Duke,and he met your
at Fort McMurray,just by
acident,your father is Mike Inkster? Lives Le Duc (Alberta)
or something like
that. Well any's your father and my brother and me
My GGreatgrandfather was John Inkster,whom married Mary
Sinclair and they
had many children,one was Colin Inkster who was
Sheriff winnipeg for fifty
or more years.George Thomas Inkster was
Colins brother,he is my
Greatgrandfather.So if you need me to answer some
questions,let me know.
Talk about your small world! haha.
Once again I contribute this connection to this email listing.
I believe Shirley and I met here.
(I'd go through my past messages but the Chernobol virus stuck
me and I was forced to reinstall everything, hence I lost a lot of
My friend who is an internet service provider is the one who
found the virus after a file transfer to him. He said that the ONLY virus
checker that found it AND was able to clean it was Anti-Virual Pro.
Hope this helps a few people. :)
As for the Tartan, Yes! I found it! Through Neil Ray and
Joanne Gilmore (I need your email address!) they just happen to be friends with
George R. Inkster of Winnipeg, Man. who is the Inkster Clan Cheiftain. (I didn't
even know we had one...hehe)
He sent a picture of the Tartan which I will post once I get
the picture scanned for everyone to see. Unfortunately due to time/money I
couldn't get it arranged for the marriage. But I am going with the
Scottish National which does look very sharp.
