    3. Dear Leonie. I am from Tyldesley, Lancashire UK------------emigrated to Trail, British Columbia when I year old with Dad, Mom and sister Edith. Dad's brother decided to go to Nelson NZ , to work with an uncle in Coal Mines. My dad worked in the big smelter in Trail. I have relatives in both NZ and Australia. I guess we have nothing in Ancestry but I do not like to let e mails go unanswered. I have done my Crombie. Hurst, Harper ,Millard etc way back to 1600's . I cannot tell you all family lines but hope you can find yours. All best wishes Joyce Crombie Chiasson in Port Angeles Washington USA. I am looking for cousins- descendants of Nellie Mitchell Fraser and William Ernest Warford. Nellie was born in Scotland and immigrated to Canada with her parents Alexander Fraser and Christina Cumming, and brother Alister between 1890 and 1895, en the next child (Ida) was born in Montreal. Another (Anne Christina) was born in Montreal before the family moved to Manitoba where the youngest (Christie) was born in 1899. Nellie married in 1911 in Winnipeg and 5 children were born up until 1929 there. Sometime after this, the family moved to Vancouver Island. Nellie and her husband William Warford are buried in Nanaimo. Their children were-Ellen Christine, born about 1913, Wilma born about 1914 (married Robert James Reid in Winnipeg in 1934), Hazel Agnes born about 1917, Joyce Beryl born about 1920 and Mithcell Alfred born in 1920, died 2010, buried Langley BC. There is a very nice obituary for Mitchell including "Pam (Gary), Sheena (Mike), Stephanie (Paul), Kathy, Will (Joanne) and John. Mitchell was always proud and had great affection for his 7 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren. " A little further digging gives me Pam's husband Gary McCabe. This is all I have. If anyone knows any of these people I would love them to get in touch with me please. I live in Ballina, NSW (Australia).
