Finding Living Person in Canada
« on: Thursday 28 July 11 10:03 BST (UK) »
Hi All,
While there is a wealth of info on RC about finding living people in the UK, I can't find anything that applies to Canada and has no UK connection. A friend has asked me for help
in finding someone in Quebec (probably Montreal). ( why do people confuse genealogists with private detectives ?) This is a birth father hunt.
The person in question was born in the 1940s, so probably alive. I have full name .dob, pob,
marriage info. Unfortunately he has  very common French names. (dozens of them in every phone directory). Salvation Army and RC Church won't help.

Anybody have any suggestions ? I am stumped.

Hi Carmela, Just noticed your post because I've been wondering about how to find a living person in Canada as well.

As in your case, mine also concerns a person born in 1940 so hopefully is still alive.

Believed to have emigrated to Canada from the U.K after 1967.

I haven't a clue as to how to proceed with my case either.

hopefully some kind person out there may be able to advise u.

Regards

Try a last name and a province.
