This page unlike most of my history pages,
is not in SE Saskatchewan.
It also does not contain one person that is related to me.
Not that I know of now at least.
Reason this page exists, is some very important documents
sent to me by a friend named Grant Walker,
from Studio City, CA USA.
Grant shared these with me, and now with
everyone else, thanks to him.
