11/11/11 In thanks to all who fell, and to those who carry on the torch.
   The rain is softly falling, like the tears that we all share, In remembrance of others , who showed how much they cared. They gave their lives to keep us safe, and asked that we hold strong, In holding up the torch for love, and right all that is wrong Think of the many souls today, who carry on the fight, And send them courage from your heart, so they may hold it tight. The enemy who walks this earth , plants hate , and greed , and lies. But it, will never win this fight , no matter how it tries. For we are many old and young , who love shines in our eyes. We know the price our dear ones paid , we still can hear their cries. They know we're thankful for their fight, and happy when they see. We take a moment in our lives to remember WHY we're free! Love will win eventually , I know that to be true. We must not ever give up hope ,for love will see us through. Donna Spangenberg Email:

05/10/11 S.N.A.P in New Brunswick Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests
For many years we have heard about abuse in the Catholic church by priests and staff members and volunteers within the church. The church has made many statements about how they are investigating each case. Well this is not how is is and I’m going to share a bit of my personal story then get back to the bigger picture at hand and that is the children that are still in risk now.
My parents raised us to go to church every Sunday, and we did growing up, not missing a mass. When i turned 11 I asked if I could serve the alter, and I did from that day for many years after that. I use to serve most marriages in the community and spend many time in the church.At around 12 I was aproched in the church by a knight of Columbia (also a usher during mass) to join the Columbia Squires (junior knights). This group meet once a week in the community center ( run and owned by church ) , also on Sundays the Knights hosted bingo and the squires did many different jobs within the bingo. We held many fund raisers to make enough money to go to sands pits in Prince Edward Island. We did that year make enough money that year to go and 13 or 15 squires and 5 knights to supervise us all went down and rented cabins. The first night out came the booze and man there was alot, all supplied by the Knights, one of the squire’s father was a knights so it was no big deal. Well at 12 it does not take to much to get drunk and I go report it to the knight in charge ( was drunk 2 ) and he took me into the “ Knights cabin “ where he continued to fonded me. One of the other knights walked in and just walked backed out and shut the door. And this time it only went that far, but was just the start of many years of forced drinking and abuse by this knight.
Here is the 2 problems , the Knights won’t kick him out.. and the church will not stop him from going to the SUNDAY FAMILY 11:30 mass , and the reason given was that “””NO ONE CAN BE TURNED AWAY FROM THE CHURCH”””” this was giving to me by one high priest and one bishop. I find this appalling and I feel something has to be done about it . As I was trying to fight with the Church and its officials and the knights and there officials in charge of these kinds of complaints they have gave me NOTHING in writing and allot of calls telling me that they are investigating it. This was 4 years ago when I first started complaining and calling and emailing trying to get answers. The abuse that happened to me happened in the church itself and in the center ( owned and ran by church anyways ) . Both sides want to blame the other side to delay any kinda responsibility for what happened..
After 4 years I have joined a group called S.N.A.P and have agreed to be the leader for the maritime provinces and to get meetings in all those maritime cities, towns, and villages still suffering from the abuse that happened to them years ago and to get the message out there to the children not to allow it to happen and to report it to the police every time.
I have spoken to many treatment facilities and spoke in many meetings to understand the severity of the situation and many of the staff have the same response, sexual abuse is is higest reason people get into there addictions. There are many self help groups that do great work working with the addiction but unfortunately there is no where for abuse victims can go as a group to discuss how to deal with the abuse and what resources there are available for them.
In other cities across Canada and all over the world there are S.N.A.P weekly groups available and have shown to do great work with the survivors of abuse. I am asking for everyones help in this effort, no matter how big or small. Were looking for office equipment, gently used p’c’s if possible, chairs, tables and any kinda monetary contribution possible for flier printing and meeting hall rentals. Thank you for your time.

10/03/11 Hi, I am hoping somebody who might know a Catherine McLaughlin who had a child and placed her for adoption in 1923 might be willing to contact me with whatever information they might have on my Mother's birth family. My Mother was baptized Mary Margaret McLaughlin on August 31, 1923 (birth date was August 12, 1923). Her only sponsor was an Annie Tebbo (not sure who this lady is) and it was at the Cathederal of the Immaculate Conception by a Rev. Roy M. McDonald in Saint John, New Brunswick. I have my Mother's baptismal certificate but no birth certificate. She is deceased but told us that her earliest recollection was being in a crib in the orphanage and looked after by Nuns. I believe she was between 2-3 years old when she was adopted but I don't even know what orphanage she was in. Her adoptive parents were the DeVillers from Yarmouth Nova Scotia. We have no adoption papers so unsure if the adoption were ever completed. Her children would love to know all about her Irish heritage and would be so grateful for any assistance anyone could give us. Thank you so much and I am praying someone contacts me. Email:

04/08/11 Any descendants of Ronald, Lottie and Sherman Lord of Lord's Cove, Deer Island, N.B. I have a small History book with these names written in it. I think Ronald used it in school. The book is:Public School History of England and Canada. N.B. edition. Prescribed by the Ed. Dept. of N.B. copyright 1902. None of the users wrote any dates of when they used it. My guess is sometime in the early 1900's. I would like to return this book to any family member who wishes to have it, esp. if anyone is doing a family genealogy. The book is in pretty good condition. Sincerely, Bud Hand, Belfast, Me. Email:
