MY GRANDFATHER worked in a cigar Factory in London,I was wondering if I could get the names of these Factories or a list of the employies if there was only one.
My Grandfather's Name was VINCENT GONZALEZ. HE was employed in 1901 & 1902 I don't know if he worked there after that or not.THEY LIVED on wellington Just around the corner from. Western University.

London, ON, had dozens of cigar factories at one time. The only way to tell for sure is to look up in old city directories and see if the occupation is listed beside the person's name.
The city directories for that time period are all on microfilm at the London Public Library, but, not on-line.

Hello, I am in a very similar situation as you are! I see you posted this several years back, but have you had any progress in your search? My great-grandfather worked at a cigar company in London Ontario. He was a Native American. I don't know what his name was, so my search has been very difficult. I recently visited London and found a list of cigar companies. I cannot find a list of employees though. Let me know if you still need this information, and I'd be glad to look it up and send it to you.

Hi,

I can look in the city directory for you and see if it
mentions his employment.....
Is there any other information about your grandfather that
you wish to find?

Hi,

I looked in the city directory ...the film was from 1895-
1904 and I could not find the last name Gozalez. Maybe
I should have looked at a different film??? I even looked
on Wellington Street and could not find the name.
Have you looked at the 1901 census records? I know it does
not say where they are employed, but finding the neighbours
might help in locating the address.

Sorry I did not come up with anything.
