DISTRICT DIARIES – I am hoping to acquire a copy of a book called “District Diaries”. It is a local history book for an area in Central Alberta (but I can’t remember the names of any of the individual communities!) It has a red cover, and was published by the same company who put out “Along the Burnt Lake Trail”. Please let me know if you have a copy of this book that you would be willing to part with. I would dearly like to have a copy for personal reasons, but I notice that the Edmonton Public Library also needs one for their research room, and the AGS does not appear to have a copy either. , Edmonton, AB Canada

WRIGHT – early 1900’s – Edmonton LUNDY – late 1800’s early 1900’s I’m still attempting to solve a family mystery on the disappearance of my great uncle Charles Francis Wright also known as Frank Wright born March 2, 1881 in Newmarket Ontario. The story goes that shortly after his family moved to Carberry Manitoba in 1894 he left home and turned up in Edmonton where he was quite a hockey player for a time. He left behind a number of siblings as well as a mom and dad. Information was sent to Carberry Manitoba in the way of newspaper articles on his hockey playing for a period of time but no one ever had direct contact with him again after he left. Strangely when his dad died in 1905 he showed up again – no one knows how he knew – and then vanished again. The last anyone heard from him was October 31, 1907. I know it sounds like a Halloween tale but I would dearly like to know anything about his life here and what he may or may not have been up to including his hockey status. I also noted when I was searching information at the Edmonton City Archives that there were a number of Lundy family members here in Alberta around the same time. I am actually decended from both the Wrights and the Lundys- I have info on the Lundy’s back to 1600’s and the Wrights to early 1800. Cheryl Stuart , St. Albert, AB Canada
