Hi there,

According to the 1916 census my relatives were living in township 48 range 12 west of the 4th meridian in the municipality of Lakeview. Can anyone tell me where this municipality is or if this is the summer village of Lakeview Alberta?
Thank you in advance
Cordially,
Lisa

Thank you both very much.

I used the Alberta Homestead Index & found who I think is him again. The land location is a little different from what is stated on the 1916 census:
Section 18, township 48, range 11, west of the 4th.
I used this land location for the " Legal Land Description Converter" & came up with a little east & north of Viking Alberta. I hope this is the place.
I have Samantha's death date from the family bible, but it didn't state where she died.
I'm going to start with Viking & go from there.
Thanks again,
Lisa
