I’m a UK citizen trying to find if I have any family left anywhere in the world. My father’s brother had a farm (ranch?) the postal address of which was Edmonton. My cousin (his son) visited us at the beginning of WW2 as part of the Canadian Expeditionary force but as I was only 9 years old at the time his first name hasn’t stayed in my memory! His surname was Bishop of course and I guess my uncle would have been in his fifties at that time like my father. Sorry this is so vague, put it down to my own advancing age. Perhaps you could direct me to any sites that would have details of the inhabitants around Edmonton in the first half of the twentieth century. Thanks, Ed Bishop , Shrewsbury, Shropshire United Kingdom

LYMAN, Edmonton, Summer 1939 to Mid-Spring 1940. Sometime during the summer of 1939 my father Lewis Allen LYMAN (now deceased) was dating a young woman whose name is unknown to me. She gave birth to a child, possibly male, sometime during mid-spring 1940. Sometime during the pregnancy this woman contacted my grandmother Elizabeth LYMAN who was living in New Westminister, BC. She again made contact after the baby was born and my grandmother shipped her a bundle of baby clothes. I do not know what happened to the mother of the child or if the child was adopted out. My father was very vague in his recollections of this occurrence although he did say the woman had dark hair and might have been cooking in a lumber camp during that summer. If anyone has any knowledge of this event please contact me. , Bellingham, WA USA

MICHAYLENKO, EDMONTON, 1911-1919 I am trying to find my grandfather, Sam Michaylenko, who apparently lived in or around Edmonton between about July 1911 to 1919. According to family history he married my grandmother, Annie Muma/Mucha/Muha in Edmonton during that period. Sam also had a brother who probably lived in Edmonton as well. If anyone has run across any trace of either name I’d appreciate hearing from him/her. The name Michaylenko is very rare, and may have been a misspelling of Michalenko.
