I am trying to find details of George William Woodhouse : marriage : children : when he came to Canada : died.

I believe he was married to Maggie Oates from Sheffield...married in Canada perhaps.

Any help would be appreciated.

Margaret. :-)

If you are in Canada, you have a better chance than most of finding Canadian info.

How did you come across this man......and his possible wife?

Thank you for your response.
I was asked by a friend to do this research.

How wonderful to find the information so quickly.
May I ask if there is any information on a Maggie Oates who may have married George William Woodhouse ... possibly in Canada.

Surely you have more chance of finding Canadian info?

Have you tried to find any?

Reggie

Reggie Report 21 Feb 2013 17:15

Try looking on freebmd for a birth for Maggie

Reggie

Reggie Report 21 Feb 2013 17:16

I think you need to get more info from your friend.........

Margaret

Margaret Report 21 Feb 2013 17:19

Thanks for all you do ... perhaps it is the second Mr. Woodhouse ... seems to tie in with dates.

Actually I have no idea where to look for Canadian details of genealogy ... what I now need is details of Maggie Oakes also of Sheffield who possibly married Mr. Woodhouse ... is there anything over there in your British records about her please.

Thanks in advance.

That is the extent of the help I am able to give.

And I must emphasise that it is not guaranteed to be relevant.........

Super : my friend is old and has tried to find more info but doesn't have much luck so I said I would help ... I think if I knew where to look in Canada that would be a big help.
