Hi everyone
Is there any records that would help to identify who was living at 332 Mimico Avenue, Toronto 1906 -/+

Good afternoon Wendy,

You may want to contact the City of Toronto  for a lookout in their land records as well as their tax records to see who owned the place. Unless the owner rented, they most likely lived there. Hope that helps.

Hi,

You can try the online collection of historical directories at the Toronto Public Library site

http://www.torontopubliclibrary.ca/search.jsp?N=37868+4289327726&Ns=p_title_sort&Nso=0

Added -  I had a look to see if Mimico Avenue was listed in the Street Directory sections of the 1906 and 1908 books.  It was not.  So, I looked in the Suburban sections (at the very beginning) under Mimico (the area).  There are no separate "Street Name" sections for the suburbs.  Looking at the list of names of people in Mimico, those who live on Mimico Avenue don't have a street number - only "Mimico Av" as an address.   :P

I don't see a Joseph Watson in Mimico in either 1906 or 1908.

Hi again,

The 1911 census has a Joseph Watson in Mimico, but he is at a different address.  His wife is Alice.  Children are William Andrew and Lena Marsha.

You can search by surname, then narrow the search down by first name.  You can view the actual record by selecting split view from the top of the transcript page.
