    I am a member of the Newmarket Men’s Probus Club and thoroughly enjoyed your presentation. I am enjoying your web site and have just read of your discovery of an irish memorial in Peterborough, being of Irish descent (1850) in the Port Hope area, I found it interesting. I shall explore more of your website

    Thank you.
