Hello. My grandfather, Edwin Born, was born on Herschel Island in October 1910. Now through family I heard that his dad came from Germany and worked on the whaling ship, the Karluk, prior to it being sold to the Canadian government. His first name may be "Edwin" as well (seems to be passed down) but I'm not sure. I know he married a native woman (some in my family say she was Cherokee but that doesn't make sense to me)who may have been named Suzanne or Susan. My grandfather's death certificate says that her last name was "Dahl" but I find nothing on her. My grandfather immigrated to San Francisco in his teens. I'm not sure if his parents stayed in Canada or came with him. My own father is incommunicado so I can't ask him about this stuff. I guess my question is regarding where to find any records about my great grandfather/great grandmother. Thanks for any help!
