Hi, Just thought i would give this a go, not sure if there are any people from Vancouver Island, or just Vancouver. I am trying to research my family history, and have drawn a blank. My great Aunt, surname smith, married a man surname Quinton, back at the beginning of the last century, and went to live in Vancouver. I have looked everywhere for info, but can't find it. all I wanted to know was, I know they worked or owned a canning factory in Vancouver. Any ideas on how to find out where to look for this kind of history? I am sure it was on Vancouver island. I know this is a long shot, but hey no try no gain!! thanks
Maybe this can help you out Little Nell.
Hi, ralwus, thanks for the link, it's is driving me mad, and I want an excuse to come over to Canada! while I've got the money saved. I have actually got Canadian in me on my dads side, but that was one of those mysteries and ingrigue from my families dark and distant past ha ha hope you are okay? thanks
Nelle I have done some genealogy work myself. I can understand the frustration. I can not help with the Canada thing but do you by chance know your relatives full name. Since I am home sick today and not much to do I could have a go at trying to find something.
Hi, ohma, sorry it took so long, I was trying the link. thanks for your help, yes my GG Aunts name was Nell smith, and her husband was we think Edward Quinton. We know that it started with an E but not sure if it was Edward. isn't it typycal that when all the relatives were alive, we never asked!! we know they went to live in Vancouver and had a canning factory but not sure where exactly it was. I know my mum was asked to go over there in about 1960 but that is all. talk about useless! and theres me thinking I was good at this! thanks again
Well maybe you will find a link or two there that will lead you to the proper place. It helped me, but many things there must be taken with a grain of slat. Good luck now.
Once when helping my daughter write a family tree for school, we went to a city and looked into their old records for businesses and the owners. You can also find out about normal ppl if they'd done something newsworthy. We also got names of ppl to go see, and these old folks gave us gold! They remembered the people and such. It was fun, have fun with yours!
