The Common Room / Re: 1939 Register

You might check if your local public library subscribes to Ancestry Library Edition.....someone may correct me but I believe this would give you access to the 1939 Register.


Canada Lookup Request / Re: Looking for marriage of Berniece McMillan

*Sandra*, there have been a few threads in the past about this family. If I remember correctly, most of the siblings have been traced but unfortunately I don't have time at the moment to hunt down the threads.

Hi there.

About the Norwood.....

If I have found the record you did (voters list?), the Norwood has been incorrectly transcribed as part of that Beatrice's name. It refers to her place of residence....RR1 Norwood. She is possibly related to the Carl of the same place.

I don't see a marriage record at the moment. Given her birth year it is likely that she married after the time limit for public disclosure, in most places about 80 years.

According to the 1916 and 1921 censuses, Beatrice was born in British Columbia.

Hi there.

You could contact the cemetery where Russell is buried to inquire whether Stella is buried with him.


Canada / Re: Leopoldine Lapierre

Looks good, eileenwilson.

Sure would be nice if we could find the family in a census or two before they move to the USA. They are well hidden.

One thing's for sure...they appear to be well educated. Their handwriting is beautiful!


Canada / Re: Leopoldine Lapierre

Great finds, eileenwilson! and MaureeinNY!

Haven't been able to find any children baptized prior to Leopoldine but have found this possible marriage that matches the parents of the known children.....

At St Jacques le Mineur Church in Montreal 07 Jan 1884 (yes!)
Zephire Arthur Lapierre son of the age of majority of Zephire Lapierre and deceased Exilda Fayette dite Lesperance of this parish
Marie Melina Martel daughter of minor age (under 21) of Louis Alfred Martel and deceased Marie Emelie Simard of this parish.

Both parties signed.
Witnesses were both fathers who also signed.

Anyway, food for thought.


Armed Forces / Re: Why would an Englishman be in the Canadian Army?

Looks like his brother may have preceeded him to Canada and he may have joined him there, although I can't see a passenger listing for Maurice at the moment. Then the war broke out and he joined up. (added: but see note below)

A Form 30A (in 1920) for the brother William Herbert gives his arrival in Canada as 29 Apr 1911. He gives his mother Mary as next of kin in England 45 Western Road Wolverhampton Bucks. This is the same address as Maurice gives for his mother on his Attestation form.


Added: looks like Maurice may actually have arrived with William and William's wife Florence. He is on the passenger manifest with them (although there appears to be a line through part of his entry, IMHO it is more likely related to something else).
