Ontario marriages are covered on ancestry to 1936 - alas there is no BMD Index in Canada - Privacy Laws are quite strict.

Amazing as his father died in a house called mount pleasant in peterhead Scotland

Do
You think thereís a way to find deaths for Alexander Samuel and William and Helen ? Or is it difficult with strict rules ?

How about the Constance marie and the Gladys Ann Samuel would we be able to find deaths or anything to do with them?
