Hi Genid

Fulford Harbour is on Salt Spring Island, BC, which is a short ferry ride from Victoria, BC.

A search of www.canada411.ca turns up an entry with address and phone number for someone of that name on Salt Spring.

Good luck.

Susan

Welcome to rootschat, ANicolson!
I have sent a private message to genid in case notification was turned off for this thread...Sometimes the thread owners are no longer active but this person was on March of this year, so hopefully this calls them back to the site...  :)

Andrew - Very many thanks for contacting me.
My name is David Beck, I am a genealogist working for a firm of solicitors in Coleraine, Co Antrim, N. Ireland.
I was trying to find all descendants of a Robert Patterson of Portrush, in order to settle a Patterson estate, here in N. Ireland.
I was in contact with your brother John. All I needed was the addresses of your siblings, in order the solicitor could write you all re this estate, which he gave me.
I did not need to know anything further, as you and your siblings, were then all alive, so would be the next in line blood kin, of that particular line.
I have finished with my part of this, and it is now in the hands of the solicitors, who I think has settled this estate. There were quite a few beneficaries.

This should have been said through a private message.
