This is a weird one... I am trying to contact a law firm that was in operation in North Dakota 100 years ago. It was the firm of Johnson and Nestos. Nestos went on to become governor. I am not sure if the firm just shut down or switched names/evolved over the years. My question is... would there be a way to find out if the firm exists in any form and more importantly for me.... where would the files be kept? If firm was shut down, where do I go next? Thanks!!

Law firms are just partnerships. As people pass on, the partnership may evolve into another partnership or it may expand into new partnership combinations. I googled and found that Nestos eventually became partners in another firm, Nestos and Herigstad.

Rissa... You might want to start with a call or an email to the ND State Historical Society. Historical societies are a wealth of information. On their website, they have a page on Nestos & here's that link which includes their contact info...

And Pringle and Herigstad still exist, and in ND. You might want to try them.

Also, if you are looking for county records (i.e. probate, civil, etc. You might try a public record search in North Dakota. I don't know if it costs anything, but not sure what you are looking for or how far back you need to go.

How about contacting the State Bar Association of North Dakota State?

New Q: Does anyone have any experience or know anything about those "moving chairs" that can be installed outside on staircases?

I have a friend who thinks she needs one and her family isn't quite sure how to decide what company to use so I told them I would ask around.

Off to google.

Dipo, we’ve had very good luck with Acorn stairlifts. They’re very reliable. They’re sometimes marketed under a different name but they’re manufactured by Acorn. www.acornstairlifts.com

Our first Acorn stairlift lasted 16 years until the motor started dying so we got a new one, which is working fine. Good luck to you.

Thank you so much Weinermr, all my research has shown Acorn is probably the best. I will forward the information.

Question re Canada geography / travel: I've been to Canada three times (technically four). First time was in '54. We were visiting relatives in Seattle. I kind of remember going to Victoria via a ferry and having tea, a little to eat in a fancy restaurant / tearoom? Does that make sense?

Probably during early '60s while we were on the usual fishing vacation in central Minnesota, dad drove us over the border into Canada. That would have been into Ontario? Didn't go too far. I think we drove a ways along north shore of Lake Superior and then turned north. Where would we have likely crossed? What's names of bigger towns not too far north of the border? Think I'd know if I saw name. (Not that it matters.)

And then in the early '80s went through Michigan over the border into Canada. Crossed at Windsor? We stopped at a tollway rest stop (?). We went a little ways and then I remembered I'd left my purse at the stop. Noooo. Oh well. Then into New York. Had to go back the way we came (not because of purse) so back into Canada (fourth time). Stopped at the rest stop. Purse was there with everything in it. Thank you, Canadians. Good people as we know.

The tea in Victoria was probably at the famous Empress Hotel (now a Fairmont Hotel). They have a tea service on a regular basis. I've been to it even though I can't stand tea. They cut the crusts off their cucumber sandwiches and had the largest blueberries I have ever seen to this day.

Thanks, Kookliebird. Does sound vaguely familiar. I was 7 YO at the time. Roundtrip on the train Chicago - Seattle. I remember riding in the dome car.

Colordeagua, from Minnesota, you most likely crossed into Saskatchewan.
In Windsor, that's where I live, did you cross the bridge or the tunnel?

Pretty sure it was the bridge.

Looking at a map of Canada, looks like we would have gone into Ontario. Drove along northern shore of Lake Superior in Minnesota a ways and then turned north. Saskatchewan is above Montana and North Dakota.

Agree with Kooklie. I think Colordeagua can safely say she has had high tea at The Empress Hotel, which is a world-famous thing to do and still is all these years later. We now live across the water from Victoria, so have been several times. Before we were going to Victoria, and I was researching it, it seemed like everybody always gave directions in relation to where it was from The Empress Hotel. I thought id decidedly odd. Once we went there, I understood why. It is massive, right on the harbour, and very impressive.

I got to stay there once for free! I placed 2nd in an Alaska Airlines photography contest and could pick between staying at the Empress and another city. Because we didn't have to pay for the room, we could afford the high tea. The rooms were small but wonderfully appointed. It was so exciting to roam around and look at all the history in the building. Love Victoria.

I have never been to the high tea, by the way, although I think it was a mere $38 per person first time we went to Victoria.

High Teas average 40-60 dollars pp. But I always find great deals with groupon, where I pay 25-35 pp.

Juju. I didn’t make much money then, so I was always on a strict budget. Now, I probably wouldn’t even flinch at paying that. It was very fun.

The 38 dollars was probably 19 or so years ago. Just looked it up. It is now $82, $115 if you want a glass of Veuve Clicquot champagne with it, LOL.

Go for it, Weinermr!! Absolutely do NOT miss Butchart Gardens, just north of Victoria if you do go. It is an unsung wonder of the world and beautiful in any season.

You know they say Victoria is the most British place you can go without actually going to the UK? The state Parliament House would be an impressive building in itself, were it not right across from The Empress Hotel, which overshadows it architecturally in sheer grandiosity.

A cousin has for years gone incommunicado except for annual Christmas card and note. I include my e-mail address every year, but never get an e-mail from her or snail-mailed e-mail address. Another of our cousins found an old e-mail address -- it's an @aol.com. Are those addresses still good? I sent an e-mail hours ago. So far haven't gotten it returned undelivered meaning she got it? If it's good, may be an old address that she hasn't used and checked for year. Or if she still uses it, gone into spam. Any ideas what?

No idea. I still use my aol email, but we used to have multiple email addresses per account and they discontinued those.

And even if that was the main email, she may have abandoned it long ago.
