I am totally new to this. I would like to start finding out about my fathers family. My fathers parents, John and Camilla Fick, immigrated to Canada from the Isle of Man around 1900. As far as I know they were both born there. Is it possible to do this research for free, or should I just bite the bullet and pay for a geneology service.

You have posted to the B.C. forum and I live in BC and on a very quick search I cannot find the names you listed but if you have some place names I will look further . If , they lived elsewhere , maybe giving some dates and places , will help your effort
\Good Luck

Thank-you...I know very little about my fathers side. My father was born in Winnipeg, MB, Sep.25, 1925, his full name is Raymond Fick. His parents died in Winnipeg around 1966, they died about a year or two apart. Again their names were John and Camilla Fick. The only thing I know about them is that they were from the Isle of Man...thats it, sorry. Thank-you again for your fast reply...I am totaly new to all this.

Update: sorry, I quoted the wrong birth date for my father. He was born Sep. 22, 1925, not Sep. 25. RE: Raymond Fick.

Perhaps you should post your query on the Winnipeg, Manitoba board instead of a British Columbia board since your say your Ficks was in Winnipeg. Or do you know that your line moved from Manitoba to British Columbia and if so any ideas as to where in the Province that we might able to look to help?

Oh sorry...I thought I was in the Isle of Man board. I'm new to this, so I'll try again. My father is the only one who came to B.C. the rest stayed in Manitoba. His father was the only one to come to Canada. The rest stayed in the Isle of Man.
