Trips to Canada: 2012 and 2014 Posts

My trips to Canada are completed.  I might go back but we will see.  Here I will make a list of the posts that cover those two trips.

The second trip took me to New York State, Southwestern Ontario into Michigan and back to Ontario going east to Kingston and on to Montreal.  From there I dropped down to New York State and returned to Buffalo to end my trip.

Update 4/17/2016: These trips are a mix of research on my Mc/MacDonald side (paternal) and maternal side which is this blog about the Boardmans and Browns. So to find more about my trips to Canada who might want to consider the blog The Man Who Lived Airplanes for more information.  See the right side of this blog for the link.
