To date I don't have any other reference to a Leonard in the line of the BECK family that I am pursuing. 

I havent finished my research into Albert's siblings and their descendants.

Westy

Does that include death notices, obituaries etc.,  Nothing mentions Albert at all ?

Hi,

Checked Toronto papers and didn't see anything for Albert.

Looked in the 1921, 1915 and 1914 Toronto Directories and didn't see him...but there is an Albert C. Beck, carpenter in the 1913 Directory.  He boards at 150 Spadina Ave.

Many thanks to Sandra, Shaun, David, & RK,

To date there is no indication Albert used the middle name of “Leonard” nor any middle name in England however I have noticed that some parents give a name to their child and perhaps add middle names later so it’s certainly possibly that Leonard was his middle name. 

Those who have gone before us obviously didn’t realise a whole industry based on official records would form the basis for genealogical pursuits when tracking descendants.  Perhaps if they had they would have been more diligent to ensure those of us who come after wouldn’t have such a tough time of it when tracing them.   ;D

RK located an Albert C. Beck in the 1913 Directory.  Albert’s May 1914 migration asked if the person migrating had previously been to Canada and if so when and for how long.  Albert had said no to each of these questions. What does this mean for a 1913 Directory entry? I wonder did Albert organise his employment and accommodation before he migrated and if so then this would perhaps fit.

In addition whilst Albert was both a qualified carpenter and joiner; his migration papers noted he was permanently moving to Canada and the trade he would follow was Joiner. These trades share commonality so perhaps Albert found employment as a Carpenter rather than a Joiner???

Shaun located a reference to the 1917 born Albert's birth in Indooroopilly in Queensland. The Albert I am seeking was definitely born in 1891 in Cadeby Leicestershire, England.  Maybe there were two Alberts both born around a similar time, both Carpenters/Joiners and both moved to Canada???

Any ideas?

Somtimes those directory entries (particularly in the USA) refer to the year previously.  Wouldn't have thought they would record hin before he arrived. He doesn't seem to appear on the next census in 1921 as we mentioned previously. Wonder if he succumbed to the flu epidemic between 1918 - 1920  ???  Or could he have returned to the UK  ???  Didn't see an entry for him crossing the border to the USA.   Have you got an exact birth for Albert ?

None of the probate entries for the brothers that I searched yesterday mentioned Albert.

An Albert Beck married Isabella Morton Muir in Queensland in 1920.
She died in 1954 (parents David Muir + Mary Brown)
But I don't know if this is Bella + Albert from the online tree

See notices in the Brisbane newspapers in May 1954 on Trove ;D
Here's one of them, Metropolitan Funerals

The name Bolton is mentioned (and I think is also in that MyHeritage tree)
