Canada Lookup Request / Obits please in York, Ontario
« on: Tuesday 02 August 22 09:48 BST (UK)  »
Good morning everyone
Would someone be able to look Obits for the following people please?

Agnes (could have been known as Aggie) Black (Mrs)
died 22 November 1968 in York, Ontario

(Went to Canada in 1907 with her husband...
Thomas Wilfred Black - died ???

They married on 24 March 1910 in Ontario (would it be possible to find their marriage certificate maybe?)

Sarah Ann Bonner (Mrs)
died East York, Ontario and buried in Toronto Municipality, Ontario - 15 February 1951

her husband was Joseph Bonner - died ???

I don't know when she emigrated to Canada but she was in Ireland in 1901 age 21 (and Agnes was 14 in 1901)  both born in Ireland.

I will continue to see if I can find anything online but someone may be quicker than me and know straight away where to go - LOL

Many thanks

She is the sister of Agnes (both born Courtney)

Good morning everyone

I don't know if its possible but would anyone be able to find a marriage that took place in Erie, Pennsylvania in 1944 between a William John Spraggs and a Josie O'Donnell please?

Also Obits for:-  William John Spraggs (he could have been known as John) he died 18 August 2007
and his wife Josie Spraggs who died in 1957.

I'm afraid I don't know where they both died other than probably Canada or Pennsylvania, sorry that's not much help is it:)

Maybe where they were buried?

He was born in Manitoba in 1917.

Many thanks

I don't know a lot but wondered if it is enough to find a marriage and find his parentsplease?

I'm looking for the parents of William Purse
I believe he was born in 1924 - possibly Canada
He married a Barbara Ann Hyde (nee Spraggs) in 1948 - age 24 - Canada
They might have divorced in 1954
He died in either 1994 or 1988

Maybe there is an Obit for him or his parents?

Any information would be great - thankyou

Hello All

Is it possible to find a marriage certificate for a Norman Mcdonald to a Barbara Mcdonald in 1891 in Dufferin, Manitoba please?

I'd like to find their fathers names please?  and anything else on the certificate.  Then I may be able to find her birth in Scotland.

Many thanks

Surrey / Salfords, Redhill
« on: Saturday 02 January 21 22:18 GMT (UK)  »
Hi, happy new year

I've been told there are air raid shelters in Salfords which belonged to The Monotype and are still there although derelict.
My great grandmother used to work for The Monotype during the 2nd World War and I would be interested in knowing about the shelters.
Would anyone know anything about them as I can't find anything online at all about them?
Thank you for any information

Lancashire / Lookups please
« on: Friday 15 March 19 08:59 GMT (UK)  »
I have found out a bit more and hope someone can help me please?

I now know William Redmond was in the Army, (I dont know which regiment) looking him up on a certain site, I can see a William Redmond withma wife Catherine Neill but I cant get into the records to see if there is any information/dates on his marriage or children.

His wife was O'Neill but perhaps when transcribed and the O was left off. 

I believe they were married before 1912 so hoping his Army records might say.

And it might say where he and Catherine were born and what his occupation was

Basically after any information ☺ please

Many thanks
