Over the past two weeks I have been working on another project. Since October 1999 the Buchanan family listserv has been a handy way for mwembers of the family to pool their research findings. Originally it was Andrew-Buchanan@onelist.com, then when Yahoo took over OneList.com, it became Andrew-Buchanan@YahooGroups.com. This was a closed list, available to descendants of Andrew and Jane Buchanan who left County Tyrone, Ireland in 1847 by sailing ship to come to Canada.
Bill Buchanan is a long-time genealogy enthusiast, living at Onoway, Alberta, Canada.

I am a retired online school teacher. During July 2007 - January 2010, and September 2011 until the present I have provided part-time support for http://www.familysearch.org This is very rewarding.
