Recent Immigration to Canada Search
« on: Saturday 02 June 18 16:41 BST (UK) »
Hello all,

On looking up the newspaper notice for the death of my great-grandfather, I saw that one of my grandfathers brothers moved to Canada. I was wondering if there would be any way that I could track them or is there any resources available to do that?

My grandfather was born in 1923 and is deceased and his brother John Chisim (who emigrated) was born in 1925 and is likely deceased now. It lists his wife Theresa and his grandson on the notice. They were resident in Canada in 1975 as of the death notice.

I have no idea when or where they moved to in Canada. Is there too many unknowns to make this a feasible search? I am interested as the grandson is likely still alive.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks.

Looking at Outbound (from UK) passenger lists there is a John Chism, welder, DOB 30/5/1925, of 9 Bromlay St. Belfast, sailing for Canada on 5th April 1957 aboard the Empress of Britain.
Could this be him?
Allen, Brown, West - Berkshire
Caesar, Dicker, Lamden, West - Hampshire
Hicks, Martin, Masters - Kent, Middlesex
Hancox/Hancock/Hancocke - Warwickshire
Gardner - Devon
Traylen - Essex & Jersey

Hi pjm99.

Yes that's definitely him! Thanks very much.

Does it have any other information regarding destination?

EDIT: I had to get an ancestry subscription but I see him and Theresa in Toronto in the 60s! Thanks again pjm99.
