I am attempting to complete our family tree and need to obtain my ancestral history through St. Paul, Lac la Biche , Alberta area.
I am searching for legal marriage, name change, and land title documents of my great grandfather Mohammad Kasim Najmaldin aka (James Bell) and a name change and land title document of my grandfather Dib Mohammad Najmaldin aka (Peter Bell). The two men both died in Alberta, Canada in 1955 and 1976 respectively.
I believe my grandfather, Dib, was born in Lala Lebanon around 1902.
My great grandfather, Mohammad, was born around 1869. I believe my great grandfather Mohammad married either a Saedi Jemha or Saedi Tamer, also from Lala. However, when he moved to Canada I believe he married or lived with a Flora Whitford from the St. Paul Alberta area. They had two children Billy and Vera.
Any information would be helpful.
Thank you very much for your assistance.
