I have enjoyed Fay Sampson's articles on this blog about how family research led to writing her excellent Suzie Fewings mystery series. I'm doubtful that my foray into the Crow family past last week will lead to a mystery series for me— but then, you never know— and it has certainly led to increasing my already-alive appreciation for the heritage passed on to us by earlier generations and the importance of keeping that legacy alive.

A beautiful Sunday in Niagara-on-the-Lake. We began the day by walking across the park to church— just as we do at home. But here we had the added delight of church bells calling us forward to worship. St. Mark's is an historic Anglican church begun in 1790 when the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts sent a priest from England. We were amazed when the current priest greeted us with "Welcome back." We had only been there once before and that a year ago.
