Lookup request William Henry Dann d.1970

Lookup request William Henry Dann d.1970

Posted: 13 May 2010 4:09AM GMT
Classification: Lookup
Surnames: Dann
born 31 may 1902 Stratford Ontario
died 23 Aug 1970 Victoria BC

I ordered his death cert, but didn't realise they send out just what we already had in the way of dates.No extra details at all.

If possible can someone check out from his death records for who his next of kin was, really just was he married, widowed, or single. Did he possibly have any children or grandchildren that might be named on the death record.

There is no urgency for this enquiry, I am not even sure such information is freely available, but if it is, I would appreciate knowing a bit more about him.

I know he was in Victoria from at least 1925 onwards, but have no idea what his occupation was or his family situation after 1925.

Thank you in advance for any help provided to solve this mystery.

Just a thought: If you live in British Columbia.
Filmed Registrations can be viewed at No Cost - at the Provincial Archive of B.C. in Victoria.
Some Public and University Libraries in the Province.
Some Genealogical Societies - may have also purchased the films
Latter Day Saints Family History Societies - anywhere - May have the B.C. Films - or - can order same into the local LDS Family History Centre.
Public Libraries - that have Microfilm reading facilities - may also order filn - there may or may not be a fee.

William Henry Dann was a retired stationary engineer. It appears that he had retired in 1968 in Ontario and moved west. His obituary said he was late of Toronto and Kingston. He was survived by his wife Mary and daughter Barbara. Remembered by cousins the Miles family and Thomas Dann of Victoria.

The first one is correct and gives a lot more information than the death cert that I bought on line. Many thanks for finding that for me. The 2nd one isn't as far as I know the same immediate family.
