Death of P.G. Falle is Mourned
North Sydney, Dec.26,--A wide spread circle of friends will learn
with profound regret of the death late last night of one of this
Northside town's best known and esteemed older resident, Phillip
George Falle, who passed away at his home on Brook Street.
The deceased, one of the town's finest type of citizens, had
been in ailing health for the past year. He would have celebrated
his 92nd. birthday next Tuesday, Dec.30.
A native of Lapoile, NFLD. the late Mr. Falle, had been a
resident of North Sydney for the past 55 years and despite his
advanced age had enjoyed good health and been active up until the
time of his last illness.
In his younger years, Mr. Falle had gone to sea for many years.
Later, he had worked with the Cape Breton Electric Company,
here, and after that for a period of 30 years was caretaker at the
local office of the Western Union Calbe Office.
The deceased was married 70 years ago in Newfoundland.
A member of Matthew-Wesley United Church, he is survived by his
wife (the former Lucy Chislett), three daughters and five sons.
The daughters are: Mrs. Belinda Beck, in the United States;
Mrs. Albert Moores, (Violet), North Sydney; Mrs. Sandy MacPhee,
(Lena), Sydney Mines.
The sons are: Brigadier Ernest Falle, a retired Salvation Army
officier of Toronto, and who is now visiting here; Gus, Sydney
Mines; John of St. John, N.B., who arrived here to attend his
father's funeral; Harold in the United States and Archie at home.
Also surviving are 21 grandchildren and 27 great-grandchildren.
The deceased was the last member of his family.
The funeral will take place Sunday afternoon, with service at the
home at 2:15 pm. and at St. Matthew-Wesley United Church at
2:45 pm, the service to be conducted by the pastor, Rev. E.V.
Moriarity assisted by Capt. George Hickman of the Salvation Army.
Interment will be in Lakeside Cemetery under the direction of
W. J. Dooley Funeral Services.
Sincere sumpathy of their many friends in Cape Breton and
elsewhere is offered to the bereaved family.
If you want this photocopy of the obit, send me your mailing
address . Bye for Now.

Denis Savard in his Arsenault book says that Patrick Arsenault married
(1891) Victoria Samson of Arichat. She was born in 1867 and was the
daughter of Abraham Samson & Ursule Theriault.
I did find a Victoria (Victoire) born to Abraham Samson & Ursule
Theriualt (Terrio-Theriot). But this Victoire was born 1858, one of
twins, and died a week later. I am wondering if Abraham & Ursule had
another daughter named Victoire -- I have seen the practice in old days
of re-using the name of a deceased child. Or, was there another
Samson-Theriault couple in Arichat?
Victoria was my great-grandmother.

SUMMARY OF ARTICLES IN THE APRIL 27, 2001 ISSUE:
Ellis Island Records Go Online. Positive reports abound regarding the new Ellis
Island website records. A reader makes an offer you can't refuse: Attention Metler
Descendents in Ontario. Upcoming Global Family History Workshops provide a terrific
list of topics and speakers. VOTE "YES" on Australian Census Survey. news about
the Worcestershire Record Office on the move (UK)
Gary Hoffman discusses The Use and Abuses of Online Genealogy. The computer's
ease at handling large amounts of information makes it a logical tool (double-meaning
intended) for use in compiling and publishing genealogical data. User-friendly
programs and the availability of CD-ROMs full of data make it seem easy to just
find and download our family data into our personal computer. But like the mirage
on the horizon, easy genealogy is forever just beyond our reach. Also a list
of do's and don'ts regarding uploading and downloading genealogy from the Internet
and CD-ROM repositories.
ROUTES TO ROOTS
Ryan Taylor writes about Transferring Old Photos To Cloth or Clothing. We are
always looking for new ways to use old photographs. Carol Stolte has discovered
that there are many things you can do with old photographs transferred to cloth.
The process is simple and the photographs are not damaged.
Researchers who study local histories are familiar with gazetteers (a geographical
dictionary) which detail physical features of an area such as townships, cities,
villages, parishes, etc. Marthe Arends reviews a CD ROM that contains several
volumes of English, Welsh, Scottish and Irish Gazetters that go beyond the standard
basics and details such things as local history, governmental institutions, local
families, agricultural details, and much more.
POST 1901 CENSUS PROJECT (Canada)
Gordon Watts reports on his participation in an Access to Information Act Review
Task Force meeting in Ottawa. He asked: Tell Us The Truth Mr. Tobin! Learn about
what you can do during the May 2001 census taking, to further the effort to gain
access to historical census. News on the current status of Petitions
A Global Gazette reader recommends a FreeWare Graphics Program. Exciting new
computerized tools are emerging that save thousands of hours for family historians
as well as provide great savings over traditional methods. This week I share
information on three of those resources: The QuickLink Scanning Pen; and two
terrific tools that enable you to view microfiche and microfilm on your computer

Right on Paula about transcribing and after they're finished they can come to

i have re-read my first message and realized i forgot to mention something--i have come to the conclusion (possibly not the right one) that snow white is coming from two servers in this case--pacificcoast.net, and speedline.ca--perhaps everyone could check their address books and see if they have anyone listed who uses pacificcoast or speedline as servers--then we could get in touch with those people to run a virus checker on their computer
i am also hoping the one of the computer whizzes in the group might be able to get more info out of the headers i included and perhaps advise the infected person(s)

Someone recommended downloading AVG - it is free, takes about 20 mins to
download, not long to install and not long to test for viruses and 'heal'
them. Others have had good luck with this one.
Thanks for this, Lark, it's great.

Sad but true that anyone use email should have a virus protection software.
Purchasing McAfee, or Norton Anti-virus and updating it weekly online takes
care of most of the problems.
I wish these virus creators would spend the same amount of time doing
something helpful that they do creating something destructive. Maybe they'd
like to transcribe some Cape Breton censuses if they've got time on their
