Introduction of Wayne from Winnipeg

Hi,my name is Wayne and I am trying to find ancestors on my mothers side.I am from Winnipeg,Manitoba,Canada.Having grown up in a catholic orphnage until I was sixteen.I never knew any family and at first didn't consider it important,but now that I'm in my sixties it somehow is.I have two grown children,six grandchildren and no ggrandchildren yet.I am following my mothers ancestry because I don't know who my father is.Hopefully,one or more of the family will develop an interest in genealogy in the future.When I first started my genealogical journey,I had only my mothers name. Now,I have my grandparents,their children,my ggrands and their children. Most of this info.I thank a cousin in British Columbia for.This genealogical journey is addictive and consuming. Good luck to everyone.
