The ship manifest image with Georgina and Herbert can be found on Ancestry. I don't believe we are allowed to post it here? Might be available on familysearch but I haven't looked there.

For the directories.....eg. 1931

On the left side choose Greater Vancouver Names A-Z.....then B.....then Bru

Georgina and young Herbert arrived Montreal Quebec 22 Sep 1912 on the Hesperian. They would then have travelled to Calgary by train. Georgina is down as Mrs G.

From this website....

The marriage of William George....

http://search-collections.royalbcmuseum.bc.ca/Image/Genealogy/b29b40ba-6e35-48da-a365-11384b0ba63a

William was living at the same address as a Gordon Drysdale Bruce in Trail BC, one of the witnesses.  It seems Gordon might be another brother.

In 1937,  a 16 year old Gordon Drysdale Bruce crossed the border to Washington State USA with his brother Herbert E for a short visit. Canadian contact was his mother Georgina Bruce of Trail BC. She perhaps moved there after William's death? Both Willam George and Gordon seem to be in the voter's lists for the area for a number of years.
