Help to get copy of Marriage Document from Archives of Ontario
« on: Saturday 09 February 19 16:15 GMT (UK) »
Dear All,
Is anyone going to the Archives of Ontario in Totonto who can help me? I live in England so unable to visit myself and it is too expensive for me to obtain a copy from the Archives themselves.
I am wanting a photo of a marriage.

This is the Source
Sources 1.   [S29] Church Records - ON, Waterloo, Galt - St. Andrews Presbyerian.
Robert Armstrong, of Beverley s/o John & Isabella married 30 Jun 1862 to Euphemia Watson of Beverly d/o John & Euphemia

I think it will probably say the Surname of his mother and until I get that I am unable to trace him further as all other documents seem to have conflicting names for his mother.

I would be very grateful if anyone could do this or even take a transcript for me.

Thank you
Judy

There is a tree on Ancestry which has the family
Robert Armstrong 1832-1903 born Scotland died Michigan.
Euphemia Armstrong 1833-1909 (maiden name is shown as Watson on her daughter’s death cert)
Their daughter was born 1863 in Michigan


On Robert Armstrong’s death record in 1903, his mother is recorded as Elizabeth Little although the transcription says Lille. Both John and ElizabethArmstrong were born Scotland

I have to say, check the tree on Ancestry carefully as I am doubtful they attributed the correct John and Elizabeth as parents of Robert Armstrong.
