You're very welcome Liz.  Hope it helps fill out your family tree - you never know, relatives may pick up on the thread - due to the powers of google, it happens quite often -

We always appreciate updates if you have the time.

100 years - it is so lovely to read of people getting to be centenarians  :)

Canada has quite strict privacy laws so you were very fortunate with what we could find. Shout if you need more.  ;)

Regards
Sandra

This site http://manitobia.ca/resources/books/local_histories/208.pdf will take you to volume one of the local history of the Rural Municipality of North Norfolk which includes the location known as Firdale, Manitoba. This file takes a long, long time to download, but has some famiy histories of Isles and Lidster families you might find interesting.  Volume 2 of this history can also be found at this site, which has a short history of Firdale including mention of Harry Isles brief operation of a store and post office at Firdale.

Firdale has essentially vanished as a community, but still shows up on maps since it is what is referred to as a railroad siding.  There is no cemetery in the immediate vicinity, but the history book has some Isles family members buried at Edrans, another virtual ghost town about 10 mies away.  I live a half hours drive away from Edrans and will check out this cemetery for you some nice day and send photos of any Isles related tombstones found.

To find volume 2 start here http://manitobia.ca/content/en then click on books, go down the list to North Norfolk and find volume 2.  Also on the list of books are Austin and Carberry.  The sole listing for Austin and the top listing for Carberry both have brief histories of Firdale with mentions of Isles and Litsters.
