Looking for baby Mason 1946

I am trying to help a friend find her biological sister, born in April 1946. Any information would be appreciated. We believe that she was born at the Royal Alex and was adopted to a "rural" area. Also, can anyone with history material tell me which Edmonton hospitals, maternity, were in existence in April 1946? Would also like to know the format of baptism records which appear to be at the UofC in Calgary. I, too, am looking for a sister, baby Lanz born May 1958. Post Adoptions provides very limited info. We live in British Columbia and hope to do some of this electronically. thanks

Death of John Van Buren in Edmonton

I am trying to find information on my great-grandfather, John Van Buren. He emigrated to Winnipeg, MB and raised his family there. However, he was a railway contractor/builder who worked in Alberta. An article in the Wpg Free Press stated that he died in Edmonton on 30 April 1926. The family story passed down is that he died in an accident. I have not been able to find a newspaper for this date and would like help/ideas/suggestions on where to look. Any help is appreciated.

Ulster Society

When my parents moved to Edmonton, they helped to found The Ulster Society, a social site for those who had moved over from Northern Ireland. If anyone has further information on it, photos from it, or recipes (my mum taught cooking there) please let me know! My mum was Elsie Ferguson and my dad was Al Ferguson. This would have been from the mid 50s until early 70s or so.
