How can we get banned from resurecting valid, old threads?

Hi Debs,

Just off to bed and you pop up. Was thinking of you earlier. Telepathy or what!

Hope your rib cage is in tact. Have a few howlers for you.

I'll be in touch tomorrow night. Hope you are well.

Not specifically that, though I have seen that book when searching. I can order it through Abe Books but at a cost of about £40!

Hello Aileen :)))

Oh please! I'm just starting to feel better after 3 months (same problem as last time) and now you want to put my discs out again.

Will put my "pelvic belt" on to keep my back straight when I read your jokes. Looking forward to them.

Joy, do you have the ISBN number?
I'll check here in the bookstores. I'm sure it will be cheaper than $80!

Some years ago I had correspondence with Geoff Bate about his book but I got side-tracked with other family history research and, unfortunately, omitted to send for it. I understand that he passed away four years ago.

What I found when googling was this -
Publisher: Geoff Bate and Associates (2000) Language: English ISBN-10: 0968698700 ISBN-13: 978-0968698709

Got to go to sleep now. Good night / morning. Hope your back is getting better, Deb.

Deb - I posted on this site -
http://www.britishcolumbia.com/forum
and someone has confirmed that his family still lives at the same address.

So, if you can't find it, then I'll write to see if they have any copies left.
