Should have mentioned that my paternal grandfather was born here of immigrant parents. My mother was born here of immigrant parents. My wife was born here of immigrant parents. Of course, my children were not, but that's another story. Make yourself at home. The other side of the world is next door.
Thanks for the welcome. I guess we're all immigrants far enough down the ancestral line. I chose Frémont as my favourite general because Grant (my real favourite) was a little too cliched a choice, and there are other aspects about the life of Frémont that fascinate me, particularly his expeditions in the West.
