Boardway/Beaudoin Family History,
Oswego, NY


My father is from upstate New York, Oswego, Scriba area and moved to Nova Scotia in the mid 1950's following honorable discharge from US Navy.  I have highlighted my direct line.  See if this helps with any connections....many of the US Census records list people as Born Can Fr without a place name.  I would love to hear from any researchers with possible further connections for me.  Many thanks. 
Will send marriages and known children of same for all of the sons and daughters in all of these families on next post.  Sincerely, Bob Boardway.  <bboardway@eastlink.ca>
