Looking for Milojka Lydia Yagarich nee Petric

Milojka Petric (born in 1932) married Rudollf Jagaric In Osijek (former Yugoslavia, now Croatia). They were provisionally separated because he moved to Calgary Alberta where he ammended his name to Rudolph Yagarich. She joined him in 1962. and changed her name to Milojka Lydia Yagarich. They got divorced in 1970 and shortly afterwards she remmarried another man whose lastname I do not know (supposedly he was a manager in the Perfume Factory). They then moved to Las Vegas NV where she still lives. I would deeply appreciate getting any information on the name of Milojka's second spouse.

I am trying to find out the birthplace of my mother. Her father and brothers immigrated from Hungary in the late 1800s. All I can get out of family is that she was born in a tent at a coal mine in Alberta near the Sask. border. Date of birth is September 5, 1903. She had 5 other sibilings. She married in Arbury, Sask. to my father William Paul Laslo (Laszlo) who was born in Istensegetis, Bukovina, Austria/Hungary on March 17, 1893 and immigrated to Arbury when he was about 17 with his family consisting of 5 siblings. I have a lot of geneology information regarding my father's heritage but virtually nothing re my mom. Thanks for anyone who can help. Vera Nolan (nee Laslo) Kamloops, BC

Looking for sibling

I am looking for a half sibling my mother put up for adoption sometime between 1948 - 1953. I believe I am looking for a boy but not completely sure. The mother's name was Lillian Ellen Carter, she went by Ellen. Assume babys name would have be changed upon adoption. Ellen became pregnant to a married man she worked with and had to put the baby up for adoption. I am not sure whether he was born in Edmonton or Red Deer as her family was from Red Deer but her sister was nursing in Edmonton. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

1916 Census

I am trying to find out some information about the family of my Grand Uncle Andrew McGown, specifically on the 1916 Census. When Andrew "enlisted" to serve in WWI on June 23, 1915, he gave his address as 747 2nd St., Edmonton, and his next of kin, wife Isabella McGown. I have not been able to find Isabella on the 1916 census, nor have I been able to locate 2nd Ave., Edmonton, on the census (using Ancestry.ca). Does anyone have any idea how I could proceed? I'd appreciate any input. Thanks.
