I am trying to find out something about a little girl who would have been my aunt. Her name was 'Betty' Bauer, and I believe she was born in 1922 in Humboldt SK. My mom, her sister Lillian was born in 1923. In about 1925 0r 26, the Bauers moved to Grimshaw AB. When Betty was 10 (I believe 1932) she died suddenly from diabetes. I am trying to track some record of this family's existence, esp dates around Betty's death. But I can find nothing at all. Can you help? So appreciate it.

Axel Ivar Carlson
I?m trying to find out if there are any living descendants to Axel Ivar Carlson and his wife Magdalena. Axel Ivar emigrated from Sweden to the US in 1904. He moved from Minnesota to Washington state where he met his wife. Two girls were born to the couple before they moved to Canada. When they crossed the border at Kingsbridge in 1926 the family consisted of parents plus Mildred born 1919 and one more daughter name unknown born in 1924. They stated their destination Hussar, Alberta. Not sure if they ever got there.
Axel Ivar died 21 Apr 1960 and Magdalena 1982. She is buried at Women's Institute cemetery, Grimshaw.
In the Alberta Homestead Index post 1930 I found an Axel Ivar Carlson farming just east of highway 35 some miles south of Manning. Keeping in mind that Grimshaw, where his wife is buried, is not that far away, could I assume that this was the place where Axel Ivar farmed?
Is there a way to know if there are descendants?
