      I forgot to mention I even found a scandal for this client. The wrestling
      coach great granduncle of his had a wife who after bearing him six children
      ran off with the assistant coach and remarried becoming a bigamist. She then
      fled to her parents home in Scotland to escape the charges. Found through
      newspapers and divorce petition.

      Check newspapers in the area and court records. You never know what may turn

      Hi Elaine,

      Did he serve in the first world war? I found amazing stuff for a client on
      the ArchiviaNet database at http://www.archives.ca/02/0201_e.html

      If you find a hit, it will take you to the reproduction of the pages. My
      client didn't even know whether his great grandfather had served or not but
      when we did the search, we found several with the right name but only one
      was a match but it gave his next-of-kin as his wife and it gave the address
      where she was living in Scotland at the time. Through this address we were
      able to locate the birth, etc. records in Scotland as we had not known the
      location prior to this. Also we found his wife's family in the same area and
      his wife's brother who was a wrestling champion in Scotland, Then he came to
      Canada and later went to Philadelphia and became a famous wrestling coach at
      a university. When you find the right key you never know what doors may

      So take a try and who knows what you may find! Good luck.

      à bientôt,

      Thanks to all. I am not sure where to look next. We have tried to find his
      birth in Ireland and
      England, and without that we can't go back any further. The old age pension
      application was our
      last hope.

      Thanks again.
