I take an avid interest in family history and have some genealogical publications. My main work has been researching the family related to my surname Bellhouse. I have also done some work related to the Stacpoole family that immigrated to Manitoba from England in the 1880s and the Budnick (or Budnyk) family that immigrated to Winnipeg from the Ukraine in the early 1900s.

After a thirty-year hiatus, I have taken up playing the French horn again. Currently, I play in the London Concert Band.
