Has anyone found parents Harry and Ida?

Cheers,
DB

I've been looking for Harry and Ida and also for Michael's birth. So far, no luck at all.

I haven't had any luck either with finding the parents, Ida and Harry.

It wouldn't be the first time one made up names :(

The man spelled labourer "Lauber" so we may never know who this lad in the census was...
However....My 2 cents worth on the name from the 1901 is Gordon Hnry Zuben/Zuken ( capital "R" & "B" seem to have a definite downstroke, & many make a backwards script E for Z)... I also considered Layton (see Gaten) Hnry since the capitol L above him looks like a G ....However there are No Z in the BHC.  It is not fully indexed so hard to say if he's in there at all...

re: the original subject of Karen's Michael Henry Rueben found in the U.S. marriage
Not that it helps anything at this stage, but it appears he was shipped out in 1901 ( surname RUBIN) from Liverpool to Quebec so that is for certain not he in 1901. I cannot see Michael in the BHC database.

This might be Michael in 1911 Brockville, with incorrect age, but birth date down as Oct which doesn't match next entry  http://www.automatedgenealogy.com/census11/SplitView.jsp?id=90247

says his birthdayAug 1 1889 https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-1942-27349-22839-22?cc=1999177

Would someone be so kind as to check and post an age on that Michael arriving Quebec...? There was no age so I should not have assumed it was the correct person
If the correct one...Does anyone see him as an inmate in an institution or with grandparents in 1901 U.K. ?  I see no births or marriages either.

Have found several online postings inquiring about Michael. This one says he was found in 1901 Ontario but I could not see him in there... It also says he stated he was born NewCastle On Tyne, Northumberland?  Is this the same person who contacted you, Karen?

http://boards.ancestry.ca/surnames.reuben/21/mb.ashx


So far only a birth for an Esther and a marriage of a Bernard and a Jacob ( James) in Northumb. District   ( we need a Harry or Henry, or Heniek, Henio)

Say I wonder if this is he...a  Harry Reuben age 14 ( c.1887) born POLAND (British Subject)  living Northumberland, Stannington. His occupation...General Field Worker ?
(If Michael Henry was Polish the enumerator might just have assumed that the lad was from there...)
I do see a Harry Rubin in 1911 but he is born c1881 ( Russia Mins Resident?) Westgate, Newcastle Upon Tyne, Northumberland, England

The one from Liverpool said Russian then? That still doesn't rule him out as there were Polish Russians (or Russian Poles?) in Northumberland....were any of the right age? A Mike or Harry/Henry?
