Still Looking for Larry

Missing since 1957 - If you remember your name could possibly be Larry and you are between the ages of 54 and 57, you may be who I am looking for. If you were born between 1954 to 1957 and remember bits and pieces of a life that you may have had, you may be the one I am looking for.

The Larry I am looking for was born on November 11, 1954 in North Battleford, SK to a woman who's name was Madelien. He lived a short time in North Battleford then moving on to Calgary where he spent the rest of the little bit of time he had with his mom. He went missing in December of 1957 and has never been located.

If you remember any of this information, or more, you could be the Larry that I am looking for. Please contact me as soon as possible as your biological family has been looking for you for over 50 years.

father's ancestry

This is another attempt to find the family of my father. he was born in Bruderheim on February 7, 1904. I know of no names of his family members. I do know he came to the US in 1924 and went to ST.Paul, Minn. He listed his father as living in Edmonton. His father's first name on the report was illegible. Any Snyder who knows of a Snyder family in Edmonton in 1924-and I know this is a longshot-I would be so appreciative of knowing of a Snyder's family's head name that may have been three letters.

Ernest Carr

Hello all,

This is a long shot...

My Grandfather was named Walter Carr, and had lived most of his life in Leeds, Yorkshire, united Kingdom. Last address.. Barkly Street, Leeds.
My Grandmother was called Ada ( nee. Clifford ) They had two children.. Doreen and Derek.

My Grandfather had a brother who sadly, I never met, named Ernest Carr.

Ernest emigrated to Calgary, Canada. (I think Edmonston ) in the early 1900's

I believe that he firstly worked on cattle ranches, before owning his own land . He married and had family, but sadly, I am not in contact with them. I remember Ada recieving Air mail from the family keeping her informed of family developments.

Best wishes to all,

Bob Carr ( England )

pig bite

Further to an inquiry of my grandmother who was left on a street in Edmonton the date seems morelikely to be in the late 1880's to early 1900. She told me a story of a child falling into a pig pen and getting badly bitten on the neck and had to be carried around on a pillow. This would have happened in the surrounding areas of Edmonton. We assume that this was her half sister. Does anyone remember such a tale?????
