Old Farm Between Mundare and Vegreville
I am wondering if anyone knows the history behind an abandoned farm (house and 4 barns) that sits just a few hundred metres up Range Road 155 near the TC 16 Hwy? I stumbled upon it the other day and am wanting to know the story behind it. It's a very nice house that looks like it was just up and left it and I'd like to possibly find out why. I can go an look at land titles but that doesn't give much of a story. Anybody have any insight? I can send photos as well.
Thanks so much,

Yes me and my sister have been trying to find my mothers birth name.. Her adopted name is Madeleine Carol Ross. We would figure that she was born February 7 1947 and adopted sometime after that.. We dont know where she is or if we will ever be in contact with her again. My father had a stroke many years ago. if anyone can help that would be great. We believe she went up for adoption either in Calgary or Edmonton maybe even in Elk Point. thank you

Looking for 1/2 brother
Fall 1939, our mother gave up a baby boy for Adoption. She gave birth at the Misercordia Hospital in Edmonton. Alberta adoptions wont provide any more info to us other than he was adopted by a well respected couple who resided in a rural area with recreational, educational and medical facilities nearby. They were of the Protestant faith, the adoptive father was 29 at the time and the adoptive mother was 25. Our mother passed many years ago..but having to give up this baby boy haunted her till the day she died.

Family who emigrated to Canada from Cardiff
I am trying to get in touch with cousins and second cousins I have in Canada. Your mother or grandmother would have been born in Roath, Cardiff UK, in about 1890. She was Theresa Donnelly and had lots of brothers and sisters, those I can remember are Mary Ellen, Mabel, Helena (Lena), Elizabeth (Liz or Lizzie), Patrick, maybe more. She married a John I am sure, they emigrated to Seskatchewan in either the late 50s or early 60s. One of Theresa's daughters was Mary Whaley who married Doug Pople. Perhaps Theresa's married name was Whaley. Hope someone may know something, thanx.

Hart Cafe Location in Edmonton 1950s
Hart Cafe, Edmonton, 1950s
Looking for location of "Hart Cafe" or "Heart Cafe" in Edmonton. This may not have been its official name but could have been the restaurant in the Hart Block (would like to know the address of that too).
My grandfather said he met my grandmother there and I would like to know where it was located. I believe it would be around Jasper Ave within walking distance of the Edmonton Auto Springs Works Building (now gone) where he worked.
