    3. Hi Rosemary, Our BC marriage index goes up to 1942 - http://search-collections.royalbcmuseum.bc.ca/Genealogy If she wasn't free of her first marriage, perhaps Dorothy never legally married Leonard HEWER, and just lived common law. Can you check whether she had her name changed by Deed Poll in the UK? It's possible someone published an obituary or death notice https://saltspring.bc.libraries.coop/research/community-information/local-hi story/ - link to Times Colonist (paper for Victoria BC) online 1858-1970 http://www.saltspringarchives.com/ has a list of marriages https://open.library.ubc.ca/collections/bcnewspapers BC city directories are online here: http://www.vpl.ca/digital-library/british-columbia-city-directories Some will include the town of Ganges, Salt Spring Island - try a Wrigley's British Columbia Directory, or a Victoria City and Vancouver Island Directory. The Victoria Genealogical Society might help with other years http://www.victoriags.org/queries.php or ask Vancouver Public Library Special Collections. Although Dorothy HEWER died in the Ganges nursing home, her "usual residence" was 1238 Tattersall Rd., Victoria, BC so check the street directories to see when she last lived there. https://bccd.vpl.ca/index.php/browse/title/1951/Victoria_City_and_Vancouver_ Island_Directory I checked a couple of years for you: 1951: https://bccd.vpl.ca/index.php/browse/title/1951/Victoria_City_and_Vancouver_ Island_Directory street directory: 1238 Tattersall: CHESTNUT M V names: CHESNUT Morris V (Agnes) mgr Isl Broadcasting h 1238 Tattersall (surname spelled CHESNUT with no middle 'T' here) 1949 https://bccd.vpl.ca/index.php/browse/title/1949/Victoria_City_Directory street dir: 1238 Tattersall: CHESTNUT M V I checked CHESNUT's death cert but didn't see any connection to England: Event Date (YYYY-MM-DD):1979-12-29 Event Place: CENTRAL SAANICH Age at Death:79 Person: MORRIS VANDELEUR CHESNUT http://search-collections.royalbcmuseum.bc.ca/Image/Genealogy/34a0c731-a0d0- 4e68-b821-9e0adb854e16 There are 45 people surnamed HEWER in BC land title; 57 BEDELL and 228 FINCH Good luck.

Hi All, This is my first foray into Canadian research although I have been researching in England for a long time. Leonard Stanley HEWER was born in Blackheath, Surrey in 1875 and he's living with his parents in the 1881 and 1891 census in Kent. In 1901, I *think* he is in British Columbia [1] lodging with the KELLY family: he stated his birth date as 04 Jul 1875 which is exactly the same as the date I have for him in the 1939 Register in England. I can't find him in the 1911 census either in England or Canada. I have found a Leonard Stanley HEWER in the 1930 electoral register in Abingdon, Berkshire. He would appear to be a lodger with Ellen ROGERS nee WYETH and Dorothy Mary ROGERS - her daughter. I have found these three living together in various other registers for about 25 years until his death in 1952 in Berkshire. Now this is where it gets confusing/interesting ;-) In 1939 he was recorded as 'married' and Dorothy as 'Dorothy M. HEWER' 'single' and both were living with Dorothy's mother, Ellen. And they were both recorded with the surname HEWER until 1949 (the last time I can find them) This would suggest they were married probably in the 1930s but I cannot find any reference to a marriage in England. *However*, while hunting, I found a death of a Dorothea Knightly HEWER in 1955 in Ganges, British Columbia, the widow of Leonard HEWER. She was said to be the daughter of Alfred BEDELL and Emily OAKS born about 1871 in Scotland. And in England there is a marriage of Dorothy Knightly BEDELL and Ernest John FINCH in 1896. Did they emigrate? I can't find them in the 1901 census in England. What happened to Ernest? There's no marriage of Doroth* FINCH in England to HEWER. In 1925, 1926 and 1927 Leonard Stanley HEWER and Knightley Dorothea HEWER are recorded at 12 Box Hill, Abingdon, Berkshire in the electoral registers. In 1928 Leonard is living with the ROGERS family - no Knightley Dorothea in the registers in England. So questions: Did Leonard marry Dorothea Knightly BEDELL/FINCH? When? Where? And then return to England with her? Did she return to British Columbia - probably between 1926 and 1927? Did they have any children?

    3. Hello All, A huge 'thank you' to Frances Bishop, Stella Stanger, Pam Thomson, Dennice Goudie, Amy Newman, Roberta Hluska, Stella Stanger and Diane Rogers - I hope I haven't missed anyone! - for their amazing input. I shall certainly be following up their many suggestions. The MELLOWS family in BC are NOT connected to my MELLOWS family but form part of my loose one-name study of the surname. Having said that, the MELLOWS in Coldstream, BC is a first cousin. My research, so far, has unearthed the following: On 10 April, 1912, Anne Karine nee? VRAALSEN - born 27 July, 1862 somewhere in Norway - passed through US Immigration (port unknown) with her son Victor (born 25 June, 1898 at Risor, Norway). Anne also had an elder son, John born 19 December, 1889 at Risor, Norway. On the 1920 (living in South Dakota) 1930 (living in Montana) and 1940 (living in Oregon) US Censuses, John (now MELLOWS) stated that he emigrated from Norway to the US in 1907 and was Naturalised in 1918 - I cannot find records of either event. John shows as single on the 1920 US Census, but divorced on the 1930 Census. I cannot find a marriage for him, or children - if there were any. After the 1940 Census, John falls off the planet. Anne and Victor both took American citizenship on 26 April, 1922 at Belle Fourche, South Dakota, USA with the surname of MELLOWS. When Anne and Victor applied for passports in 1923, while living at Belle Fourche, South Dakota, Victor gave his Father's name as Ole TORGENSEN. This begs the question as to why they chose to Anglicise their name to MELLOWS? Victor married Karen nee JOHANSEN c.1925/1926 - possibly in Wyoming. Karen was born c.1899 somewhere in Scandinavia and emigrated from Gothenburg, Sweden, passing through Ellis Island on 12 August, 1924. Victor and Karen had three children, Arne MELLOWS (born c.1926 at Casper, Wyoming) Ivar MELLOWS (born c.1927 at Basin, Wyoming) and Oscar MELLOWS (born c.1929 at Malta, Wyoming). Sometime after the birth of their third child, Victor and Karen, settled in BC. Victor died in 1994 at Prince George, and is buried at Penny. I cannot find a record of the passing of Karen. As far as I am aware Victor and Karen's three children are still alive (Arne and Oscar in BC and Ivar location unknown)- at least one of them has children and grandchildren of their own - and I thought it might appear to be a bit strange if I were to contact them as I am not a member of their family. Has anyone any thoughts on this? My research does come further forward in time, but I've not included it for fear of upsetting living people. I've proof-read this email about half a dozen times, I hope I've got everything right! If anyone is interested, I can send them a chart showing what I have compiled of the family. Thank you for reading this and I hope it hasn't scrambled your brain or put you in a coma. Peter Gainsborough - in Croydon, Surrey, England

    3. If the original question was about finding information on a 1970s marriage in BC. One of the best places I have found that info for recent events is on Facebook. Spouses, relatives, friends all post anniversary (or even occasionally divorce) messages. People do sometimes post anniversary messages in newspapers too. For this, the surnames need to be a bit better than my own though. Good luck with your study, Peter. (And thank you to Dennice for the heads up about the Sooke newspaper link. I look after that BCGS newspaper page. I will fix that tonight.) Diane M.

Births to 1903 - used to be in the 101st year - now 121st year to protect the privacy of those who live longer. Marriages to 1942 - and Deaths to 1997. an inconvenience . Many other Provinces - are even more difficult. Our records can be viewed - copied. some Provinces - may show the indexed info - and require payment for the Registration. If an item appears at the BC Vital list - you might be able to view a full Registration at Family Search Org -online. Depending on your relationship to the persons of interest - and have an aprox time of the event - you may be able to request a search at Vital Statistics - I believe they search withing 5 years -[may have changed] Ordering the Registration can be very expensive. You have posted to British Columbia - Mail list - Do you believe the families settled here? Do you have an aprox. time frame Depending on time. Search Canada Census -last available 1921. Have you posted to other Canada Mail Lists - or Message Boards? Searching 1911 Canada Census - finds only 1 GAINSBOROUGH - Ontario/ Algoma/West / Sault Ste Marie. John GAINSBOROUGH - age 65 born 1845 USA -Lodger -to Canada 1910. British Columbia / Yale Cariboo / Merritt John MELLOS - age 32 - - Jan 1879 - born Greece to Canada 1909.

    3. In the 1970’s there may have been a write-up in a local newspaper. Some local genealogy societies have transcribed names & dates from local newspapers as my society has. We are in Campbell River, B.C. and I checked our transcriptions from 1957-1990 but there were no Gainsborough’s or Mellow’s.

    3. Hi Peter, 1. The best you might do is to find the couple listed in a city directory together. Otherwise, I don't usually bother trying to find a marriage, but occasionally stumble upon one. 2. Search Ancestry.com and other genealogy sources for other trees which may contain the information you want, if the individual is deceased. 3. Obituaries sometimes include a date of marriage of the deceased, but it's rare. 4. There is a very slim chance you might find an engagement, marriage or anniversary announcement in a newspaper, if you find a collection that has been indexed, or scanned with OCR. You would have more luck with a small town paper. "Canadian Newsstand" database contains content of major newspapers but often omits classified ad sections, including such announcements, unless they are in the Society pages. I doubt that the database is available to you in the UK. 5. Some people post their wedding or anniversary date on Facebook. Canadian genealogists are jealous of your UK bmd resources! Regards, Amy J.
