Privacy Laws are restricting the searches - There are no Central registries/indexes in Canada for BMDs.  Canada has very strict privacy laws and each province imposes its own even further.  Additionally, some provinces are more research friendly than others so researching in Canada can be challenging.  The last available Canadian Census was 1911 apart from Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta which was 1916. 1921 is due shortly which might show if Joseph and Ellen had further children.  As a guide BMD Records are only available for births more than a 100 years ago, marriages 80 years ago and deaths 70 years ago. Trying to trace modern day families in Canada depends on newspaper announcements, cemetery records, obituaries, telephone directories etc.,

Thanks for the insight into Canada  :)...never ever researched Canadian Records hence appeal.

Maybe it would have been better doing a further topic appealing for Vanelli/Vanelli of Toronto? Whats your thoughts Sandra?

Canada Voters List 1957 and 1958 shows a Joseph Fountain (retired) at 43 Donald Ave York South Ontario. Also Ellen Fountain.

That seems to tie in with the address on the marriage of Effie to Vincent Vinelli.  ;D

Sandra

Fantastic yes looks like you traced them upto 1957/1958.

Thanks again.  :) :)

Canada voters List 1935 - Mr Vincent Vanelli (labourer) and Mrs Vincent Vanelli (married woman) - 16 Marshall Boulevard York West Ontario.

Canada Voters List 1940 - 16 Marshall Boulevard - Mr Vincent Vanelli (baker) and Mrs Vincent Vanelli.

Canada Voters List 1945 - 75 Gray Ave. York West. Ontario. Mr Vincent Vanelli (baker) and Mrs Vincent Vanelli.

No record on Voters List after this date. Although there are a couple of entries around 1965 which could be a son of the same name  ???

Interesting Canada Voters 1968 - 51 Cornwallis Drive - York Scarborough Ontario. Could be a son with a wife and Mrs Elfie Vanelli (retired)  ???

Sandra

1945 is a free search and the alleged murder is on there!! Got to get reading.  Photos in paper and sons listed too..with address Gray Ave  :)

Just saw those and yes, it all seems to fit. The eldest son was named after grandfather and appears in Canada Voters Lists. The youngest was named after his father.
Elfie Vanelli (factory worker) appears with eldest son and wife at 75 Gray Ave on the 1957/58 Voters List.
Interment for Vincent Vanelli was Mount Hope Cemetery.
Seems to have been a daughter as well - the eldest child of the 3.

Hi, my name is Lisa Vanelli and I am the daughter of the late Vincent Vanelli and grand-daughter of Elfie Vanelli.  I have actually been trying to find information on the Fountain family so this is quite ironic!  Feel free to contact me and I'd be glad to help with whatever information I could provide, and I would appreciate the same from you regarding the Fountains.  My grandmother's background has been somewhat of a mystery any information would be appreciated.

Sincerely,
Lisa Vanelli

Hi Lisa

Great to hear from you, no doubt we will be very distant cousins.
