    Good morning

    A few years ago I received (bought?) a small booklet from you concerning
    the Bala (Muskoka) Mohawk reserve.. which I would like to consult
    again..but I have probably lost it in my last move from Ottawa to
    Hawkesbury, Ont. There were a few members of my family (Dicker, Dicaire..)
    from which I gathered a few photos to put into my family tree.

    Is this booklet still available from you? If so, could you send me another
    copy (with tour bill) so I could follow up on my searches?
    Also if you have other available material on same topic I would highly
    appreciate receiving it.

    Many thanks for your attention

    I am very interested by the photos on this site. My family ancestors (Xavier, Peter..) were tried at Oka for the fire in 1871 (?).. but never found guilty. They were more or less forced out of Oka in 1881 to go to Gibson.. where they were left on October 31st in the wood.. and woke up the next morning in big snow falls that had fallen during the night.. having to tear their tents to make slippers for their young ones.. This was reported by one of these men who were with the group.
    So if some of the people in tour pictures could be identified, it would serve history of Gibson Bala Reserve.
    Thanks

    Does anyone know any information of a Louis Decaire that settled down in Mattawa? Married Elizabeth Bernard at Oka?
