Hi,

Is there a kind person out there who could help me locate a wedding in Canada of Margaret Emily Downing and William Kelly around 1913? I am told that Margaret emigrated there in July 1913 but I cannot find any record on Fuind my Past Migration and Travel

I have never seen any wedding pics and I can find no trace of them marrying in England so far.

I look forward to hearing,

Many thanks,

Andy

Do you have any more information eg years and areas of birth, parents' names?

Do you know where in Canada they emigrated to?

They appear to have married between 1913 (when Margaret emigrated ) and 1916 (the census posted). They were living in Saskatchewan so if they got married there this is from Saskatchewan Vital Statistics.

Marriages (more than 75 years ago.) Not yet available. Work on this index will commence after the index of deaths has been completed.

Hi ***alviegal***, gins, safc,

Thank you all so much for your help. I can see now that Margaret didn't waste any time in marrying once she'd arrived in Canada!

A special message for ***alviegal***................I am interested to know which tree on Ancestry your info came from.

Once again, many many thanks. I really appreciate the hard work of all of you.

Regards,
Andy
