Hi listers, this came across this afternoon, and Robert has given me
permission to post it to you. I looked at the message board and there are
two previous msgs relating to Van Every. They might be of interest to some
of you, especially if you have Wishart family members.
Robert may be joining us on this list, too. I have asked him to post any
queries he might have, in case some of you have interests in this family.
I still have not found my grandfather's parents! Still looking for the
family/parents of Henry Charles Van Avery, born about 1869, Canada.
