Glad to say that I found my family on passenger lists going to Canada from Scotland - my grandad went over first, followed by the oldest child, and finally my grandmother took the other 3 kids over the following year.  I've also found my grandad and the two girls (one being my mum) returning to Scotland in 1953.

I've also found out that they resided at the Dominion Experimental Station in Lethbridge (where my grandad worked from 1948-1953).

What I'm looking for now are photos of the Experimental Station during that time, particularly staff quarters.  I have Googled it and found various aerial photos, and pictures of other buildings, but would really like to see or hear about how my mum and her family would have lived. 

It's a bit of a long shot, but if anyone reading this lived there at that time and can give me any information, or even photos of my family, I would be so grateful, as I have never seen a photo of my grandma, and have no photos of my mum as a child.

Forgot to say that, through Ancestry site at my local LDS, I was able to access the Lethbridge Herald archives, which had a notice about my Grandma's death, funeral details and a notice of thanks from the family, as well as many articles about my Grandad's football skills!

Maxcam, have you access to Ancestry?

Hi all
Does anyone know if photographs were taken of immigrants into Canada in the 1940s and, if so, where they would be now?  I'm still on a quest to find a photo of my grandmother.  I did try the Passport Office here in England, but they couldn't help.
Thanks. 
Terri.
