searching for mothers birth family
Morris, Helen Robertson, Edmonton Alberta. We are very new at this. We have no idea how to go about finding out any information. If anyone can give us pointers, it would be greatly appriciated. We are looking for the birth family of my mother. Mom was born Marilyn Estelle Morris at the Beulah Home in Edmonton, Alberta on Jan 27/38 to Helen Robertson Morris. She was delivered by Dr. A.L. Chambers. Initially Helen had kept mom but something changed her mind and mom was adopted out at 6 months. She was adopted by Nicol & Edna Gray of Lacombe, Alberta. Helen was born in June of 1917 in Cardendenshire, Fifeshire Scotland and came to Canada in 1920. She went to school at Eastwood School in Beverly, Alberta (which I belive is now part of Edmonton). Her address in 1938 was 4740-117 ave Edmonton. The only thing we know about the father is that his name was (is) Tommy Patrick. He was born in Ireland in 1916. His address in '38 was 215-25 st W Saskatoon, Sask. He worked for CNR as a camp cook on the run between Jasper & Evansburg, Alberta. We would love it if anyone could share any information.
