Hi

If they were in Canada for such a short time you will probably find nothing there.
But maybe you can find something on this websites:

Alberta Homestead Records

University of Alberta Libraries - Newspapers

Hi

As far as I know it is not sure if he came from Switzerland or from Germany.
You can only research in Switzerland, if you know his place of birth or his place of origin.
The Swiss Surnames Book does mention the place(s) of origin/citizenship of the surnames.
For every place it mentiones the surnames which still had citizenship there in the 1960ies.

I have already tried to find something in the newspapers of Paris (they are online on gallica).
I'm also trying to find some information about stonemasons from Switzerland which went abroad.
You should always think to search for all possible spelling variatons of the names, such as
William, Wilhelm, Guillaume or Morris, Moritz, Mauritz, Maurice, that makes it difficult.
A Stonemason in Switzerland was called Steinmetz, Steinhauer or Steinbildhauer.

Hi

Quote
Next puzzle, his wife, their is no marriage that can be found, and wonder if it could of been in France

As it was mentionned earlier in this thread maybe Mathis wasn't the father of the first child. So it's possible that they met and married in Paris, where the second child was born. Did someone search for their marriage in Paris?

I'm trying to find some information about stonemasons from Switzerland in France or elsewhere. I searched on gallica (National Library of France with newspapers of Paris)
https://gallica.bnf.fr/accueil/?mode=desktop

and on e-periodica (with periodicals about local history and genealogy in Switzerland) but found nothing about the time in question.

Hi

In Switzerland registry offices only started in 1875, for earlier years you have to look in the churchbooks. In most Cantons of Switzerland the churchbooks are hold by the State Archives. Some State Archives have put their churchbooks online, others you will find on familysearch and Fribourg has any census of the 19th century online also on familysearch. Some Cantons have Familienregister, Stammbücher or Bürgerbücher which were started sometimes in the 19th century. In some Cantons they are hold by the registry office or a separate office, in other Cantons they are hold by the State Archives.

Hi

It would be interesting to see the original birth entry for the child born in Paris.
So can you tell us in which arrondissement of Paris you have found this birth entry.

Europe / Re: trying to understand german death notice for Wilhelm Diedrich
« on: Monday 06 August 18 00:38 BST (UK)  »
Hi

You misunderstood some things.

Auguste Diedrich, née Schnur, was the wife of the deceased,
and they had a daughter (her name is not mentionned).
There is not mentionned a daughter in law (Schwiegertochter in German language).
The date mentionned is not the date of birth of Auguste or the deceased person.
It is the date when this message of his death was written.
I think this death notice was published in a newspaper.

Australia / Re: McLeod/MacLeod - 1856/7 ship from Liverpool to Melbourne

Hi Ross

I have just found an interesting publication about emigrants from Poschiavo to Australia.
They took the information from the family register of the San Vittore parish in Poschiavo.

There are two Benedetto Crameri, one (*1837) emigrated with his brother Giacomo Antonio (*1834) and their deceased father was Bernardo. The other was named Benedetto Giuseppe (*1854) and his father was the deceased Pietro Crameri.
https://www.e-periodica.ch/digbib/view?pid=qgi-001:1983:52::281#281

There are some letters from men of Poschiavo who emigrated to Australia in the newspaper "Grigione Italiano" of the 18.12.1857:

The State Archives of Graubünden have some interesting genealogical records and documents.

Hi

You can find this marriage entry at familysearch, maybe you will also find some census entries there.

All Canadian Census information and documents you can also find here:
