Hello bbart,

That is news to me. Every day one do learn something news, don't we?

Thank you so much for sharing this interesting tidbit with me and other RCers!

Would that means his death be in the newspapers? I did tried to search but turned up no news with an exception for that a wee article on him being panicked for his daughter's supposedly missing arrival.

Hope someone here will help us with this line of inquiry. I do not know how unusual for not having a date of death back then.

Kind regards,

Tees

 Is it OK to post the death certificate here? Or is that No-No on Rootschat?

 Please advise.

 Thanks,

 Tees

Wondering if no replies to my post means it is dead? I regret that I missed out on new relatives' posts. I think it was odd that I did not get any notifications until I logged on with new information for this post.  :'(

If so, should I lock this post?

I welcome any friendly advice.

Thanks,

Tees

Hello Cosmac!

Good to hear from you. Many, many thanks for your help with finding the death certificate on George Thompson and other information as well!!

I will put up the certificate here later on tonight.

Meanwhile, what do you make of the death certificate information? Do you think we have him?

I would love to know why he was put down as a Catholic when he married Margaret Storey in the Church of England?? Yet, he did marry my great great grandmother in a Catholic church. He was baptised in the Church of England.

It would be lovely if the relatives here who replied could verify if this death certificate is him or not and one thing that might be a big help to me is if there is old family bible that could confirm his death in Canadian Thompson family. I do not know if there is a bible or not. But, I think it will be very useful.

If the birthplace is more specific, we can verify easily.

I welcome your opinion/expertise.

Gratefully yours,

Tees

Hello all of you who followed this post,

I have not forgotten about posting a death certificate on this post. I do not know if it is OK to do that or not.

Also, I had a medical situation that forced me to be hospitalised for a few days then recuperating at home. If all goes well, I will be declared healthy in two weeks' time. That's why I did not keep in touch with this post.

Also, it appears some of Canadian repliers have not contacted me or made any attempts to reply to this post.

This made me wondered if I should stop posting here and be done with this post? Please advise.

Many, many thanks to all who replied and helped me with breaking through a brick wall! :))

Kind regards,

Tees

There are other threads where people post certificates they've purchased from ScotlandsPeople so your Manitoba death certificate would be no different.

Perhaps the death certificate might prove useful.

Looking forward to seeing the death cert.

Hello All of You Who Followed this Post,

Sorry it took me so long in getting round to post this death record.

Here it is.

I do not know if we could verify this record to see if this is the right one or not.

It would be great if our Canadian Thompsons have a Bible to show his date of death even if it did not show the actual day but month and year will be helpful. OR stated where he died.

Hope you enjoy the death record I put up here.

Regards,

Tees
