hi is it possible for you to do a death look up my ex mother in law moved to prince george british columbia in the 70's. she was born in around 1900 in the manchester area her maiden name was williamson she was alive i n 1900 but we lost contact and my children would like to know when their grandmother died
it would be much appreciated if you could
What is her christian name, and what was her surname when she went to Canada.
You say she was alive round about 1900? You also give this as her birth
Hi Irene/ Moira,
If you have a look at our site Map scroll down and you will see "Colonies"
Canadian information is there.
To give you a helping hand. I have Ancestry and just the UK subscription, not the World Wide sub. But I am sure Moira will do a look up for you.
Just a little extra information re Canada.
We do NOT have a central BMD set up as in the UK. Each Provence looks after their own.
I am sure British Columbia has a site on line most don't. I will check however.
My husband & I are the original immigrants. My line is Sheffield/Ecclesfield centered.
Will get back to you ASAP.
Elaine in a beautiful sunny/snowy day. Xmas is certainly on its way.:santa: :snowman: :flag-ca:
PS. Have a look at this.
