1622High River & Frank Lake
- May 19, 2003Hi Bill,
I see an unmarked lake in that area on Grandpa's 1930 Alberta map with
townships. Found Mr. Frank in the 1906 census.
A relative taught school at Blackie in the 1920's, not sure of the exact
order in relation to other school terms near Calgary. She boarded with the
family of Beulah who used to work at Calgary Family History Centre. Display
at FamilyRoots 2002 had some of Beulah's pictures around 1928 when she was
boarding with her former teacher's relatives in Calgary.
Teachers liked to work at schools in the towns along the railway lines so
they could get home to Calgary on the weekends.
Google search for Frank Lake showed a link to this map with townships marked
and another Frank Lake in northern Alberta.
Municipal District of Foothills has links to land use maps dated April 2003.
