Axel Ivar Carlson
I?m trying to find out if there are any living descendants to Axel Ivar Carlson and his wife Magdalena. Axel Ivar emigrated from Sweden to the US in 1904. He moved from Minnesota to Washington state where he met his wife. Two girls were born to the couple before they moved to Canada. When they crossed the border at Kingsbridge in 1926 the family consisted of parents plus Mildred born 1919 and one more daughter name unknown born in 1924. They stated their destination Hussar, Alberta. Not sure if they ever got there.
Axel Ivar died 21 Apr 1960 and Magdalena 1982. She is buried at Women's Institute cemetery, Grimshaw.
In the Alberta Homestead Index post 1930 I found an Axel Ivar Carlson farming just east of highway 35 some miles south of Manning. Keeping in mind that Grimshaw, where his wife is buried, is not that far away, could I assume that this was the place where Axel Ivar farmed?
Is there a way to know if there are descendants?

I am trying to locate a birth record for my father, Benjamin Franklin Baird. He was born on Dec. 30, 1913 on or around the Michel Reserve. His older sister (by 18 months) was born in Mosside, Alberta and it is possible Ben was born there also. The provincial archives have record of his sister's birth but not Ben's. We tried checking St Peter's Roman Catholic church records but were told that records before 1930 were lost in a fire. We were told by his sisters that he went to Youville Indian Residential School but I have been unable to find out how to access those records. Any help would be appreciated!!

WILLIAMS, Edmonton, 1968 - I am looking for the family/descendents of Cristiolus (Chris) Williams (b 1893 Regina). His parents were (William) Parry Williams (b 1846 Wales - d 1907 Regina) and Emma Elizabeth Thornton (b ca 1868 England - d 1918 Winnipeg). He served overseas in WWI, and gave his mother, Emma Elizabeth Williams (also known as Thornton-Williams), as next of kin, living in Winnipeg. He returned from the war and married Maude _______. They had 2 sons - Ken (in Calgary in 1968) and Bill (in Edmonton 1968). There were 10 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren in 1968. He was a telegraph operator from a young age to his retirement. Cristiolus and Maude lived at 9308 109A Avenue from 1947 to 1968. He died 23 Oct 1968 and was to be buried in Evergreen Memorial Gardens.
Cristiolus was a half-brother to my grandfather John Williams born Wales 1881.
Cristiolus is a very unusual name - it came from the name of the church in Llangristiolus, Anglesey, Wales, beside which William Parry Williams spent many years in his childhood and youth.

I am trying to find out more about my second great grandfather. His name was Tor Vindal, and he was born in Seljord, Norway, in 1887. He married my second great grandmother in 1907, and they got 6 children in total. In april 1927 (when he was 40 years old) he left his wife and 6 children (!) in Norway to go to America. I have found his name on the passenger list of the vessel "Caronia", going from Liverpool to Halifax, Nova Scotia. In the passenger list it is listed that his final destination was Edmonton, Alberta. But all leads end with the passenger list. I have searched cemetery records from Edmonton, but I could not find the name there, or anywhere else..
I would be tremendously greatful if anyone has any information about Tor! I am really curious to know if he married again and got a second family and what happended to him after he left Norway. I don't think he was very popular with his wife when he left her to search for "a better life" in America, so I think they stopped having contact completely after that. Thus, nobody in my family knows what happended to him. I hope somebody knows something about him!

He was listed on the census in 1901 living with his parents Ivan and Domka Yurkiew. I know he passed away sometime after that but nobody remembers him. When did he die and where is he buried. He is not in the St. Nicolas Cemetary at St. Michael where his parents are buried. It could be that the cemetary wasn't there yet. Perhaps it was Chipman catholic.
