DAKIN / DRIVER, Edmonton, early 1900s My grandmother Lilly or Lily DAKIN b 1890 at Bolehill, Derby, England to John DAKIN and Millicent OXSPRING. ( I think I will tackle OXSPRING at another time, what a unique name that is). I think she move to Edmonton Alberta between 1905 and 1914. She could have married William Joseph DRIVER b 12 June 1890, Peterborough, England prior to (I assume) the birth of there first child Edna Eva DRIVER born on 25 November 1914 in Edmonton, Alberta. There second child, my father (William DRIVER) was born 9 Sept, 1916 in Edmonton. What I need help with is: 1. How do I locate a Marriage Certificate for them? I do not have a marriage date or exact location. 2. How do I find the ship that they emigrated on? Lily may have came with here parents and William came later following his sweet heart, so I am told. 3. How do I obtain birth certificates for there children born in Edmonton? 4. How can I determine if she came to Canada with her parents and brothers and sisters or came alone? If she came with her brothers and sisters then there is a good chance that I will have living relatives still in Canada. She may have been one of 10 children. I know this is a lot to ask but I would appreciate any and all help on this. As I am not a Canadian citizen this research would have to be done via e-mail or snail mail. I thank you in advance for any assistance, Dick Driver rldriver@imajis.com PS. Yes I would be happy to pay for some research. , North Bend, WA USA
