I am looking for any relatives that belong to the William Baty or Ellen Mellors family that came to Canada in 1921/22. They seemed to be close to one another particularly Ellen who had sisters Eliza, Gertie, and Emily. Looking for a family connection... :-)

Welcome to the boards, Margaret.

Have you looked to see if anyone on here has William or Ellen in their trees, by using the Search/Search All Member Trees (top right)?

You can then contact them for more information.


MARGARET AUBERT Report 7 Aug 2013 19:51

Yes, I have tried but am not sure they are still using GR as they have not be on since March. Thanks for the suggestion. :-)

Thank you for the information. The Ontario Marriages family is definitely not related but all of the other people are relatives. :-)


Reggie Report 8 Aug 2013 08:29

As you have 'marked as answered' can we take it that you require no further assistance with this?


MARGARET AUBERT Report 8 Aug 2013 12:05

Actually I would like to wait and see if any relative responds, if that is okay? :-)


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 8 Aug 2013 12:11

Of course Margaret. However, you could be proactive and use the Search All Members Trees :-D

Even if you don't renew, make sure that GR have your current email address if you change it. There have been replies on threads over 6 years old which have been picked up by a GR site and internet search- we've advised the new poster to send a PM (Personal message) to the thread originator as they are unlikely to be checking the thread after such long time.

As long as the registered email address is current, the lapsed member will recieve notification that someone is trying to contact them. They don't have to re-join to read it or reply; just log on to the site


Reggie Report 8 Aug 2013 12:21

OK by me.......but you may be in for a long wait.............


MARGARET AUBERT Report 9 Aug 2013 03:01

I understand.. hoping to give it 3 months... Thank you for your help. Margaret.
