      Missing brother

      Hi everyone can anyone help please. I am looking for my brother who was born on the 7th May 1942 as Ronald Patrick masters in the uk. In 1948 he was adopted by a Margaret Garner and took on this family name. In 1949 he emigrated to Halifax in canada, and I amdesperate to trace him as he has 8 brothers and sisters that he has never met, cheers sue

      Missing Brother

      Hi Sue,
      Just checked Canada 411 -- the phone book , similar to Phone Book UK. There were no listings for either R Garner, or R Masters , for Halifax, Nova Scotia. This book only deals with land lines though, so if he uses a mobile only it would not show.
      Sorry, I tried
      Best of luck
      Liz

      Saw an article in the Toronto Star yesterday, Sat. Sept.27, re. a woman living in BC who had been trying to find her father for 21 yrs. It tells of the many routes she tried and the frustrations she met on the way. It is the cover story of the 'Living " section, entitled 'Loss doesn't go away ', written by Barbara Turner Kinsella, who is married to W.P. Kinsella, the author, best known for the movie 'Field of Dreams '. I don't know whether the newspaper has an on line version of this but if you wish to try here is the email address :--- living@the star.ca

      If not, I would be willing to send it to you airmail, if you had an address that did not divulge your exact location, perhaps c/o a local post office. You can't be too careful these days.
      In any case keep us informed.
      Liz

      Found an online version of the article I mentioned -- not easy to find. I have emailed it to you. Hope it is of some use.
      Good luck

      Hi Sue,
      Apparently the email of the article did not go through -- reason Bad destination host --- whatever that means.
      Try the site I got it from http//www.parentcentral.ca/parent/article504627.
      If this does not work let me know and I will mail it as promised earlier
