    I’m not sure if this will reach you, but I’ll give it a shot anyhow.

    My name is Christianne Keanie. I am 35 years old, and I live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. I think that we are (2nd?) cousins.?. Actuallly, second cousins, I believe.?. I am still trying to figure this out (mathematically, at best;)
    Your father (?)’s cousin was Joe? And his aunt, Jeanie (nee Keanie)?
    My dad’s name is Charles (Chic). DOB 03/02/33 He is the youngest of all of the siblings to Jeanie and grew up with Joe (and from what I can gather, your father in Leith/Edinburgh.?.
    I may not be sure of any of the answers, or even the questions for that matter… But I took one look at your picture here on this website, and all I could see (besides a happy man:), was someone who looked like my family. Especially my dad and Uncle James, and brother Scot, and cousin Kenny… And this may sound strange, but my dad has a picture of my grandmother; whom I never met. (She and my grandfather both died on the same day — my dad’s birthday, the day he came to Canada, the day Buddy Holly, the Big Bopper and Ritchie Valens went down in their plane — the day the music died).
    But, if you cover up her hair on this picture, it looks EXACTLY like my dad! And uncle James, and YOU!
    I don’t mean to pry, but I’ve been feeling a stronger urge to know about where I come from… Who my family is… And when it strikes upon me like this, I Have to ask.

    If there is Anything theat you can share, it would be greatly appreaciated, After all, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it”.
