hi Jackie - I went downtown today to the archives. Boy you can sure tell the economy is poor. We are a tourist destination, and I found a free parking place, first time around the block, within a block of the archives! I don't think I have ever whipped in and out of there so fast. They have a new microfilm reader since the last time I was there - much better. Anyway, for my convenience, I xeroxed the registrations. If you choose, you can back channel your address and I will mail them to you. > Vital Event Death Registration > Name: Sarah Wilson Dean > Event Date: 1926 5 2 (Yr/Mo/Day) > Age: 68 > Gender: female > Event Place: Nanaimo > Reg.
