Canada Lookup Request / Re: Manitoba obit for Hazel Margaret Johnson
« on: Saturday 27 November 21 20:38 GMT (UK)  »
It looks like Gudmundur (Mundi) Johnson served for a short time in WW1. Click on PDF part way down to access the complete file. It will be very slow to download. Children are mentioned.

Did Hazel have a twin brother (Howard, 1921 census)? There doesn't seem to be any info about the child but he has the same age as given for Hazel (8/12).

The marriage cert for Peter and Hazel is available to purchase from this website. No guarantee but it should also have info about Hazel's parents.

There also appears to be a birth reg for Hazel on the above website even though the baptism indicated she was born in Ontario.

I think her birth year should be 1834? This is the year given in the 1911 census and matches the age of the Fanny found in 1851 by *Sandra*.

Did you ever get the marriage cert for Lily and Elias to ascertain who Lily's father was and what he did for a living? How do you know her parents are William and Ann? And that she was born in Sunderland?

There seems to be more than one Lily in the 1911 census with a father William, mother Ann or Mary Ann if I remember correctly. One age 10 (b. 1901 Sunderland, Durham), one age 8 (b. 1903 Chester, Durham).

Nifty1, I was wondering if you had looked for Lily and Elias in the 1939 Register to see what Lily has for her birthdate? I don't believe we are allowed to give the info here. If I have found the correct death registration in the GRO website it has a birth year of 1903?

Hello...

I was just wondering if you have looked for the airmen on the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website?

In case not, here is a link to the record for Owen Whyman. Info includes his parents. Also a pic of the cemetery.

I didn't look up the other two.

Thanks for the input, suey.
My sub is currently lapsed so I guess I'll find out eventually.

I couldn't see that this mentioned in any of the 1921 census threads (but certainly could have missed it)....

Can anyone tell me if one needs to have a sub to FindMyPast in order to be able to also access the 1921 census transcripts/images? I know the FindMyPast website mentions a discount for a particular sub but doesn't seem to say whether one can view the records without a payed sub that I can see?
