Hi Margree, thanks so much can you help when this Benjamin married Elsie and did they have any family?


MarieCeleste Report 1 Jan 2013 12:25

Susanne, Canadian privacy laws are much stricter than ours and there aren't such recent records available on line as we have here. For example, the most recent Ontario marriages are 1928 and births only go up to 1913.

Perhaps one of the helpers actually based in Canada might be able to give you some tips.

Regarding your query about Benjamin's siblings - have you traced them through the census or looked for records on FreeBMD?
