Elsie May Hall mystery
« on: Saturday 19 May 18 14:29 BST (UK) »
Hello,
I have a mystery with Elsie (born about 1924). Her parents Ralph Hall and Fanny Robertson married in England in 1909 and  emigrated to Canada in 1911 with daughter Annie, I have them on 1921 census with another daughter Margaret. An article in The Lethbridge Herald in 1946 says Elsie married Donald Nightingale in Birmingham England (Donald died in  Victoria in 1979) I have searched births, passenger lists, deaths but cannot find anything about Elsie. Where was she born was it Canada or England?

Thanks in advance

On the Voters Lists - the son is listed as "M J" - will send you a social media link by pm which might well be him.
