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.

The family of Mary Ann HENRY, b. 22 Jun 1866, Forfar, ANS, SCT d. 26 Dec 1941, Auckland, NZL (Age 75 years)
Recently learned that her twin George McKiddie HENRY, b. 22 Jun 1866, Forfar, ANS, married on 11 Mar 1896 Dundee, ANS, to Isabella Luke DONALD, b. 6 Jan 1870, Dundee, ANS, SCT Had Children
George Donald HENRY, b. 1898, St. Peter, Dundee, ANS, SCT d. UNKNOWN
Gertrude HENRY, b. 1897, St. Peter, Dundee, ANS, SCT d. UNKNOWN
George Donald HENRY married Elizabeth CHALMERS, b. 4 Aug 1908, 3 Meadow Place, Lochee, ANS, SCT d. 12 Aug 2007, Edmonton, AB, CAN (Age 99 years) and had at least three children. Their gender, names and DOB and whether they are alive or dead is also unknown.
There is family in New Zealand who would love to make contact and would be grateful for any information; we presume the family is in Canada as the only clue which we have been unable to verify and unable to get any leads from is the death of George Henry?s wife.
Elizabeth CHALMERS who died 12 Aug 2007, Edmonton, AB, CAN (Age 99 years) we have been unable to find a funeral notice or obituary which may have been able to give us some clues about living decendants.
It is unknown if Gertrude (Georges sister) was married had children or when or where she died
Any help or information to find our relatives would be appreciated. Thanks.

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 good friend Gertrude is 100 years old on March 24, 2014 and I would like to find for her grandson Ryan and the rest of her family, information on Rudolph (Rudy) Jacob her younger brother named for his father Rudolph Jacob senior Pastry Chef at the Hotel MacDonald in 1916 and then Alberta Dairy Lunch. Rudy left home and no one has much information on him. We think the family got notice of his passing in the 1950's or early 1960's in Calgary, Alberta. He may have had a jail record and the family lost touch of him probably because of that as the rest of the family was a very proud family. Any information greatly appreciated. .
