florence samuel mystery
« on: Sunday 08 April 18 19:58 BST (UK) »
have a relative Florence Samuel that I believe is buried in the woodland cemetery Hamilton I saw the headstone and the dob of 1899 and death 1976 looks spot on

but I know connections from florences daughter lauras husbands side and they seem to believe she died in 50s

on my previous post it suggests she was a widow going by the voters list in 1970s sometimes I wonder why she is listed as widow as her husband seemed to marry another woman and we can trace him on previous post

but is there a way to find an obituary notice for this Florence to confirm more about her and to see if this is our Florence that's buried in woodland cemetery Hamilton Ontario 1899-1976

thanks in advance for any help given

Background info and research that has already been carried out on Samuel Family

http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=791324.0

reply 6 on that thread refers to Florence Samuel 1900 - 1976

Billion Graves shows - Florence Samuel - 1899 - 1976 - Woodland Cemetery.

The above was for "Information Purposes" - otherwise research already done, tends to get duplicated.

There is an RAOGK volunteer in Hamilton - "Types of Look ups: Online Sources, Cemetery Photos, State / Local Library" - this might be worth an e-mail if nothing materilizes on here.

Or you could write (snail mail) to Hamilton Public Library -  :-\

Sorry I had no further luck tracing him in the USA or in Canada - he just seems to have disappeared.  :-\

She could have remarried and that is why there is no trace at the moment.

You can check Montreal Directories here

http://bibnum2.banq.qc.ca/bna/lovell/index.html

Choose Montreal...then Serie Principale.  After that, you can access the directories.  Choose the year you want, then choose the alphabetical directory.
