I became interested in genealogy because my paternal grandfather came from Quebec to help after the Halifax Explosion in 1917 and the name is a unusual one in Nova Scotia.  We heard many stories about this family growing up so I started researching in my teens.  One of the funniest things I learned from another woman who is researching our family is that we had a very cool claim to fame...none of us are related to royalty  ;D  She did let me know that we are related to the man who commissioned the Canadian national anthem.  He didn't write it...but he recognized that Canada needed a theme song :)Susan R
