Hey there,

   Could you narrow it down to where in Saskatchewan??  I'm from there and it's a bigger area then you'd think.  Especially with a last name as Andrews might be tricky..

  I will look in the other surrounding areas when I'm at the library if this is your family.  It is close to where my rellies came from.

Hi Jeff, yes that is the David I am connected to, he had 3 sons one from his first marriage David and two from his second (although I don't think he and Alice actually married) they were my Grandfather Ernest Bradburn (taking the name of Alice's first husband Samuel Bradburn) born 1899 in Manchester, he also went to Canada - Winnipeg c1920???, with his wife Mary, who we believed died in Canada and his two sons Kenneth and Ernest jr (this Ernest we believe died in Canada) - my Grandfather returned to England presumably following the deaths of Mary and his son - they went to Winnipeg.
Davids other son was Harold Andrews, who stayed in Canada.
I will try to find out where they were.
Many thanks for your help!

Regs,
Jaq
