I think there're a couple of buildings on his quarter section, but it gets blurry when I try to magnify enough to tell.

Now have a look at this. From http://www.saskhomesteads.com/results.asp

If you go to this link http://sab.minisisinc.com/sabmin/scripts/mwimain.dll/147/1/0?SEARCH&ERRMSG=[SAB_WEB]No_Homestead.htm
you can actually read the documents. If I have read them correctly, Edwin is George's son.

Angela Report 2 Apr 2013 16:38

Yes Glitterbaby - sorry if i have repeated stuff i am a bit new to all of this.

Alviegal - yes saw the posts for family in Canada - not sure if it is mine or not , some of the names listed I am not aware of.

I do know that Frederick George (down as George on one of the census) born 1887/1888 was in the UK as he married in a place called Sheet, Nr Petersfield, Hampshire UK in 1923. He was my Grandfather. I have a copy of his marriage certificate and the original death certificate, he died in 1946 in a place called Fareham, Hampshire, England. My father was born in 1928 in a place called Steep, Nr Petersfield, Hampshire, UK.

yes correct family

Kempinathermalhat
yes correct family

George death details could be the right one.

Glitterbaby - we were sort of but we were looking for Frederick Wallis (Walter) Bridger.

Interesting about Lily Bridger - from memory last info I have on her is in the 1901 census - haven't been able to find anything else.

Thanks for all your help.
