  1. Somehow you find blogs I never even knew about! The one about the SS Cataraqui might lead me to a distant family member as I too have Izzards in my tree 🙂

  2. I’ve enjoyed several posts included today! Thank you for including the one about the Liberty Ship. I hadn’t had much luck locating a descendant of Harry Wold recently, then last week received feedback for an older post about him from a grandson! It was fun to send him a copy of the new “Leora book,” with a chapter about his grandfather!
