LUND, ALBERTA, CALGARY, 1923, 1911 to 1923 - searching for my Grandmother and her family

LUND, ALBERTA, CALGARY, 1923, 1911 to 1923 Helen Mary Lund (aged 18 years, Roman Catholic) ) married Arthur Le Gros (aged 24 years, Church of England) in Alberta, in St Mary's Rectory, Calgary, on 26th Feb 1923, I am trying to find out more about my Grandmother and her family in Canada from the time she was born until she left Canada, soon after her marriage to travel to Jersey in 1923. On her marriage certificate her father is named as John Lund (from Ireland, Cork) and her mother is named as Margaret Smith (surname before marriage), John did not sign the marriage certificate, Margaret did sign, others who signed the marriage certificate as well as Arthur Le Gros and Helen Lund were Arthur Lund, who I believe was Helen's brother and George Fraser. Helen was either born in Ireland before the family emigrated or in Canada. From teh 1911 Irish Census, I believe her father was a gamekeeper in Dunblane, Ireland and her mother's full name was Margaret Ellen Lund ( a copy of the full 1911 census details are given below this message, however Helen is not recorded on this census) Helen Mary Lund died in Jersey at the age of 26 years when my mother Ethel Sarah Le Gros was just 7 years old. I am trying to find out more about Helen for myself and my mother who is now 92 years old - she knows very little about her mother and has never seen a photograph of her mother. I would like to find out more about my Grandmother to share these details with my mother and my family. If anybody can help me with this research I would be very grateful. Many thanks for reading and considering this query. Best Wishes Pamela Surname Forename Age Sex Relation to head Religion Lund John 50 Male Head of Family Church of England Lund Margaret Ellen 46 Female Wife Church of England Lund Arthur 12 Male Son Church of England Lund Harry 10 Male Son Church of England Lund John 7 Male Son Church of England Lund Mabel Margaret 5 Female Daughter Church of England

GIBSON, Helena Victoria

This is a bucket list item for me. I have never seen a photo of this lady, she is my grandmother. Her maiden name was Shepard and she married John A Gibson in Lambton county Ontario in 1885. They lived in Strathroy and had 8 children. By about 1906 they were all in Alberta. Helena and girls lived in Edmonton and John and some of the boys lived on a large farm near Westlock AB. The oldest son was Maynard, married to Lena Edgson and they farmed in the Clyde AB area. They left Clyde in the late 1930s and moved to Fairview AB. Their descendants may be my last hope of finding a photo. Helena died in 1916 and is interred in London ON. John died in 1938 and is interred at Clyde. I may be the last grandchild still living although cant be sure since the family was somewhat fractured. I left Canada over 50 years ago. If any one can help I would be eternally grateful. My email is tvgib@yahoo.com.

Father's family

My father William Fred Snyder(?) was born either in 1903 or 04 either in Calgary or Bruderheim to Fred Snyder/Elsie Donough.(sp) He came to the US in Sept 1923 to St Paul Mn and was with a brother George. Previously he had been to the state of Washington in 1921 probably to visit a relative. His occupation was listed as farmer and he was of German descent. After many years of searching for my grand parents have absolutely turned up nothing. He could have changed his name or lied about his information but this is all I have to go on. Any help would be appreciated.

Section 11 Township 29 Range 20 Meridian 4

An online database lists this as a homestead taken out by Joseph Yopek but it seems that the lot was School Land in Drumheller and became for a time -- 1913 -4 until at least 1917 -- a squatter settlement. Does anyone know anything more about this land and those who lived there? (My grandmother's first husband was Joseph Yopek and I think she joined him there in 1913.)
