I am not sure if this is the right area. I am looking for Castlegar, B.C. area. I am wondering if someone could look up an obit for me for in a local newspaper:

Jennie Marcellus died 27 Jun 1974 Castlegar, B.C.

Thank you very much.

I have given your email address and a copy of your query to Jennie's granddaughter (we belong to the same church). Someone from her family will be in touch with you or will ask me to be in touch with you. Are you related?
Cheers,
Marian

Marian, Thank you so much. It is always so great to get in touch with family members so I will look forward to hearing from Jennie's granddaughter. I appreciate you doing this for me. Jennie's grandma and my great grandpa are brother and sister. Jennie's mother moved to Alberta in the same time frame as my Grandpa and Grandma.
