Searching for an Evelyn Gail Campbell (Maiden name) b. 1936 or any immediate Family
Not sure if born in UK or Canada. Living in Ontario, Canada in 1950s

Hi Lorraine,

There are no births registered for an Evelyn G Campbell between 1930---1940 in the UK.

There are adoption details here of a daughter of Evelyn Gail Campbell born 1956, Peterborough, Ontario.

The only Evelyn G Campbell birth on SP is in 1954

Margaret, it looks like you probably have the right person.

Daughter born 1956, so Evelyn being born 1936 (the DOB in Lorraine's question) would be a reasonable match.

On the Canadian voters' lists at Ancestry there are

1972 Evelyn Campbell

1957 Mis Evelyn Campbell (sic)

I don't have a sub for Canadian records - could someone check whether the 1957 listing is for Miss or Mrs? Appearing for the first time on the 1957 list would match being 21 in 1957.

Also whether the 1972 Evelyn appears with a husband (in which case it would not be the right person).

It would seem likely that Evelyn was on the 1957 list and married or/and moved away before the next election.

In 1957 she might have been living with parents and possibly siblings, and that would provide more info, for searching for family.

Mother was listed as being 29 in Feb 1964, so that puts her born 1934/35.

Sorry Rose, listed where?

First appearing on the 1957 voters' list would match with turning 21 a year or two earlier also.

Federal elections were held in 49, 53, 57, 58.

So it would seem that the Evelyn on the list in 57 married or moved away by 58.

Maybe ???? Don't know what year this record's for.

Name: Evelyn G Campbell
Birth Date: 11 Nov 1936
Address: [removed exact address in case she's till alive, and maybe still living there ] Palm Springs, CA, 92264-2507

Or this ???
