You are just so kind.
It is easy to forget that not everything is available on line. Living in Tennessee USA it's a little difficult to access info kept locally to an event.
I feel Elfriede - my adopted sister's mother - is like a wilo-the-wisp. I think I have found a piece of info & them woosh she's gone. I wonder if she and John had any children which would give my sister half-siblings. I know she was married to John at the time of his death as she is listed as his spouse, however I think he was married before and had a wife named Thelma who did not die until 2000. That being the case there would be divorce papers but they are within the BC family court papers which according to what I have read are confidential. Finding out when the divorce took place would give me an inkling regarding when John and Elfriede got married and whether children were a possibility. Elfriede was 39 when she arrived in Canada so time was not on her side.
I feel I need to stress that family meetings, reunions, are not the purpose of my quest. I want to give my sister her background as a gift. We are both adopted and when you are adopted you feel like a rootless tree. Just planted somewhere with nothing to hold you in place.
Anyway thank you for the time you have spent.
