Looking for marriage of Berniece McMillan
« on: Saturday 11 August 18 21:37 BST (UK) »
Hey guys I'm struggling to find a marriage for my great auntie Berniece McMillan born 1914 in Canada somewhere. Parents are Samuel Christopher McMillan 1878-1916 and Dora Ann McMillan maiden Moore I believe.
I have full international ancestry and even with that can't find anything but a marriage name of Norwood which doesn't add up.
Any help would be welcome.

Hi there.

About the Norwood.....

If I have found the record you did (voters list?), the Norwood has been incorrectly transcribed as part of that Beatrice's name. It refers to her place of residence....RR1 Norwood. She is possibly related to the Carl of the same place.

I don't see a marriage record at the moment. Given her birth year it is likely that she married after the time limit for public disclosure, in most places about 80 years.

According to the 1916 and 1921 censuses, Beatrice was born in British Columbia.

I agree with Polarbear about "Norwood" - Infact that couple were Robert Carl McMillan and Bernice Menzies - here is the obit for Robert Carl which mentions Norwood RR2

Have you managed to trace any other siblings of Bernice ?

Obituaries might help locate Bernice -

Mother Dora passed away in Victoria British Columbia - the daughter Lorna nee McMillan/Sutherland was the informant - 1303 Yates Street Victoria. BC.

*Sandra*, there have been a few threads in the past about this family. If I remember correctly, most of the siblings have been traced but unfortunately I don't have time at the moment to hunt down the threads.

I have full international access on ancestry and this doesn't have anything to do with the rest of the family just Berniece.
Thank you

There are a couple of border crossing records on Ancestry. My membership has expired wonder if either of these might be your Berniece McMillan? They might give you a lead as to where she was living.
