Bio: I'm a freelance journalist and biographer on a quest to visit and write about all 266 National Historic sites in Ontario. Not the boring dates and battles but the cool human stories behind the sites.

    Hi. This is cousin Jan here. Have you thought of Marie Caisse’s statue here in Brace bridge? She discovered Essiac (her name spelt backwards). It is an excellent story. Essiac is a cure for cancer, Parkinson’s disease, etc. An Indian recipe with only four ingredients. Google it, there are pages on it. I know that it works. Louis might also be interested in it. If you visit here, would you come see us and have a meal or stay overnight? Our phone is 705 646 2620. Love Jan.

  2. Hello,

    I am writing to you because I manage the Canadian Register of Historic Places – the Federal-Provincial-Territorial collaboration to list all designated historic places in the country on the Canadian Register. As the manager, I will mention your visits to others. I have been to many NHSs in Canada, and since you have been enthusiastically visiting some of my favourites, it would be good to promote your entries for other Canadians to see. Keep up the great website!

      Andrew: Thank you for this. I will send you the article that was in the weekend’s Waterloo Region Record about our project. Please feel free to contact me at anytime. My aim is to improve the profile of the NHS and through my blog even generate some funds for their maintenance and repair. sS please follow my site. The more followers I have the more an advertiser will be attracted to the blog. Cheers, Nancy

    NANCY: What a breathtaking quest. I stand corrected. I thought the oldest protestant church in Canada as founded by a Silcox. It’s not a national historic site; but you might be interested. The congregationalist church in Frome Ontario was founded by the Rev. Joseph Silcox in 1819. Three years earlier in 1816 Daniel Silcox was the first of the family to come to Canada. The Frome Church will be a major site for the celebration of this event by the Silcox family on the weekend of July 15,16,17 this year.
