    3. Liz, you may want to send for your ancestor's records from Barnardo's homes. See http://olivetreegenealogy.blogspot.ca/2013/08/tips-for-searching-for-british-home.htmlfor links and an email address to use. I sent for my husband's Barnardo Home ancestor and received a very nice (and large) file full of photos and details.

    3. Hi everyone Hope everyone has realized there's a searchable by name database online on Library & Archives Canada http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/databases/naturalization-1915-1932/index-e.html is an index 1915-1932. I've used it and then sent for the full record of someone I found. It's a great tool! There is also a searchable-by-date database for 1936-1951 at http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/databases/naturalization-1915-1932/001055-100.02-e.php Good luck!

    1. [CAN-NATURALIZATIONS] CHARLES FRANCIS BAILEY
    2. CHARLES FRANCIS BAILEY b abt 1885 in London arrived in Quebec from Southampton England on 19th August 1928 on the SS Aurania as part of the British Harvester schemes. He is a labourer. On the passenger list he gives his age as 43 and married to Ina Bailey of Leicester, England and he is bound for Winnipeg Manitoba travelling on CNR. There is no evidence that he ever returned to England. And I assume that he died in Canada ; maybe married again? On the form he stated that he had previously been in Canada in 1900, 1914, 1923, & 1924. He was on the Leicester voters roll from 1920 until 1928. He was my grandfather and my grandmother's name was Diana, aka Ana & Anna she never followed him to Canada. On their marriage certificate,4th December 1920 at Leicester registry office, he is 36 yrs old, a bachelor and a gas works labourer. His father was John William Bailey, deceased. His wife, Diana Bailey, died 2nd December 1957 age 80 at Leicester. Described as Widow of -------- Bailey, Labourer. Whenever we asked about him as children or asked about the letters from Canada it was always brushed aside and never answered. I am trying to find out what became of him in Canada but I have no further definite information. I do have a photo of someone on a sled with dogs standing outside a building which has the name "Simcoe Veterinary Hospital, Dr A C Burt " I have always assumed that this was a photo of him but do not know if he was connected in anyway to the hospital. Maybe he was a hired help. But it does give a place name as a starting point There are two other photos which I have also assumed are of him. There is one with a dog which was inscribed on the back" To my darling Catherine" Who is my mother and she was an only child born in Leicester in 1921. This is a URL for a Flickr page for the photos. http://www.flickr.com/photos/zonne/ I would be very happy if anyone could help in any way or point me in the right direction.

I suggest you post it to the Manitoba mailing list and perhaps Ontario mailing list as well. You can also submit it to http://askolivetree.blogspot.com for a response.

    3. Hi Mike: I don't recognize the man in the photos but there were Bailey's in Ontario, Canada. There is a town/city called Simcoe in Ont. also a Lake Simcoe and that area often uses the name Simcoe in their business names, groups, etc. Our interests are Coastguard Blakes, from Ireland, Kent, Essex and Broadwater, Watsons from Kent, Harwood-Watsons from Sussex and Surrey. Pages from Berkshire, Surrey and then to Canada. Good luck with your search. Regards, Donna BC, Canada

    2. Roni Miller
    3. Hello, I am looking for assistance, on the following surnames in Trois Rivieres Canada. Presse' Girard Deschamps Vanasse dit Precourt. I descend from Pierre Girard Presse' married Marguerite Deschamps dit Laliberte, April 21, 1760 at Cathedrale des Trois - Rivieres, P Quebec. Pierre was the adopted son of Joseph Francois Girard and Marie Anne Vanasse dit Precourt. Hyacinthe-Oliver Presse' drew up a contract for Joseph & Marie Girard to raise Pierre Girard Presse'. Pierre was born between 1735-1740 and died July 1, 1809. Marguerite Deschamps dit Laliberte was born July 20, 1742 and died March 4, 1791. I have the following children listed for Pierre & Marguerite: Cecile, Pierre, Marie-Marguerite, Jean Baptiste, Marie-Therese, Michael-Ange, Joseph, Marie-Cecile, Francois, Louis, Charles-Antoine, Joseph Modeste, and Marie-Louise. I am actually trying to trace more information on Pierre Girard Presse' I am hoping to possible locate information on his biological parents, and also any other information on Joseph & Marie Girard (the people who raised Pierre). I'm uncertain whether they legally adopted Pierre, if they were actually blood relatives to Pierre, or what? Anyone that could help solve this mystery it would be greatly appreciated. My line from Pierre Girard Presse' moves on into Missouri, and Illinois, USA. Thank you very much. Rhonda (Roni) Pressey Miller

(all of these are actual questions asked and answered) If you want help finding an elusive ancestor, please be sure that you provide me with a concise (brief) summary of your ancestor with dates and locations. Tell me where you have looked and what you want to find out.

Thus immigrants from Great Britain and the Commonwealth (England, Ireland, Wales or Scotland) did not have to be naturalized. I'm afraid you won't find a naturalization record or oath of allegiance for your family - taking the oath meant becoming a British subject -- and they already were. You can read more about Naturalization Records in Canada, who had to naturalize, when records began, what records exist and where to find them, at http://naturalizationrecords.com/canada/ If you are looking for ships passenger lists of immigrants to Canada, be aware that prior to 1865 shipping companies were not required by the government to retain their passenger manifests. There are some passenger lists archived at the NAC (National Archives of Canada) for the time period 1817-1831. There are some passenger lists which were kept by shipping agents in the originating country. For example, the Passenger Books of J & J Cooke, Shipping Agents gives sailings from Londonderry to Philadelphia PA, Quebec, and St. John New Brunswick from 1847 to 1871. Olive Tree has some passenger lists from these records online,and will be adding more as time permits. See http://olivetreegenealogy.com/ships/canada/ for a complete list of online projects for ships to Canada before 1865 (plus links) On TheShipsList website they are including Quebec ship arrivals extracted from contemporary newspapers.
