Hi,

Can some tell me if the informant on a death register/entry (York, Ontario) 1918 for a child of 2 mnths old, would have had to be a relative (parents were both alive) ???

Entry viewable here (with image on right side): https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/JK7V-JPX

The entry is for Robert Paterson (1st column)

I am trying to establish whether the informant was a relation & how far from my relatives abode did this person live.

Address of my relative was:
406 Jones Ave, York, Ontario

Address of informant (F Resar) was:
180 Shubourne St ( ???), York, Ontario

How close to each other were those addresses please.

Hi,

I think the name is F. Rosar, 180 Sherbourne St. Toronto and flipping through other pages
of deaths his name appears frequently. It was and is a funeral home.
They are at 465 Sherbourne now, but from this article they were at 180 previously.

Thanks DB,

Nice additional story too  :)

That has now saved me unneccesary trawling to find out the relationship too........a big help on a "red herring" for which I'm grateful  ;)

It's a mystery why the father was not the informant though but no big deal as we will never know  ???

Hi,

You're welcome  :)

F. Rosar's name appeared on numerous death entries. Why relatives for some and not for others...... ??? ???

And... :) Jones Ave. to Sherbourne St. is 4.3 kms. or 9 minutes by car.

Cheers,
DB
