Is it OK with you if I start a new web page on our site for this family? I'll add your e-mail and Taylor's e-mail to the new page so that other relatives can contact you. Please let me know. Also, there is a large sand / gravel operation out here near Barrhaven. It is owned by the Brazeau family. When I'm out that way, I'll get a photo of the sign. There are probably some Brazeaus in this area. Thanks for your work, Taylor. ... Al Lewis _________________________________ Hi Allan: I've seen the sign you are referring to : Marcel Brazeau. It's a gravel pit. We drive by it when we visit my sister, who lives in Bells Corners. There are quite a few Brazeaus in the Ottawa area & not all of them are related to us. Sure. I would like that. It would be a good way to keep in touch with family. My dad didn't tell us much about his side of the family. It would be good for us, I think. Thank you. Hannah B __________________________ Taylor has confirmed that both he and Hannah are descsended from the earliest Brazeau family to come to Ottawa. ... Al
