Hudson Bay Company



Hello Jeff,
Glad to see you are still with us.  I love your eagle!

>From the bibliography  of "A Dictionary of Scottish Emigrants to Canada Before
Confederation" by Donald Whyte:

HBB - Hudson's Bay Biographies.  typed biographies of employees of the Hudsons
Bay Company, prepared at the Hudson's Bay Company Archives, Vaughan Street
Winnipeg, Man. R3C 1T5

HBM - Hudson's Bay Miscellany, 1670-1870, edited by Glyndwr Williams,
Winnipeg:  Hudson's Bay Record Society (No. XXX), 1975.

You can probably find a copy  the second one through the Company Archives.

Also, I think I remember forwarding you a copy of a letter from someone who was
organizing a Millenium Gathering of the descendants of William and Nahowy.  If
you
need it again, please let me know, and I'll try to dig it out again.

Cheers,
Toni
