If anyone has access to BMD in Canada and could help please

I have John Daniel Tyson born 1858 Kendal Westmorland I've got him in the censuses to 1891 he was a Book keeper I'm thinking he went to Canada after 1891 He married a Christina Macauley about 1913 possibly in Canada
They had Kathleen 1914c and Janet C 1916c
John Died 1916 Canada

Not sure what info worldwide ancestry gives but I would be grateful if their is more info to have
Thank you

Yes that is the family


MargaretM Report 9 Apr 2013 19:51

A tree on Ancestry says he married Christine 21 April 1913 in British Columbia, Canada. It says daughter Janet married a Pringle.


Sylann Report 9 Apr 2013 20:03

Yes I've got the probate of the mother Christina in 1966 which says the girls names
I They traveled back to England in 1916 and not sure if when they came back in 1938 they stayed.
When they traveled back Janet wasn't married so she must have married in Scotland

Thank you


Sylann Report 9 Apr 2013 20:06
