My name is Sheila (Geldart)
Hannah. As a young child I would sit for hours, looking at old photos and listening to stories of my ancestors. And here

I was born and raised in
Oshawa, Ontario. My parents and their ancestors were born and raised in Albert County since the early 1800s. I have been researching periodically for many years. Every moment has been a joy. I

As I stated on my other website, a dear friend told me once that I could do anything if I put my

help to make these sites grow --- thrive -- and become a viable Albert County
community resource. I look forward to meeting many of you in the days ahead.
