      Birney researcher is one of my contacts who responded to an offer to help
      find relatives in the 1911 Calgary census. Does anyone on the mailing list
      have connections to these early families?

      Fred Birney, a long-time employee of the Alberta Hotel, died in the summer
      of 1914 leaving a widow called Minnie and six children. His 4 children from
      an earlier marriage to Margaret and Walter (one of Minnie's children) grew
      up with relatives in the Calgary-Midnapore area. There are connections to
      Bannister, McKevitt, Copas families with known burials at Union, Burnsland
      and Midnapore.

      Cemetery office does not have a burial record for Minnie (Mary?) Birney or
      Clarence Birney so she may have remarried if she stayed in the area. There
      are several unconnected Birney names in the Calgary area.
