In answer to this post I received an e-mail from Barbara Hopper of Nepean, e-mail, member of the Ottawa Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society. I visited Barbara on Tuesday Mar 10 with my handwritten notes. Less than 24 hours later she had produced a very attractive and 100% professional family tree, with accompanying detailed 26-page chronological descent report and family sheets. The cost of this work was very reasonable, and my mother will love it and receive it in England in time for her birthday. I recommend Barbara's service very highly.

Mum received this initial version of the Copple family tree for her 81st birthday March 22. It is entirely feasible to add to this tree, given data from other branches of the family. I delivered her an updated Copple tree, and the Clarke tree (her side of the family) for her '82nd. I also delivered the Zachar tree to Steve and Carol, based on Laurie-Ann's genograms.

Your input would be valuable, readers who are relatives!
