Hi Joan, Just wanted to let you know how I've fared in finding my Lethbridge ancestor.
I emailed the Geneological Society there.Gave them my Henry's year of death. A lady named Marion emailed me later that afternoon to report she'd found Henry & his wife in a resource book. Further, she said she'd check for their obit's this wees as soon as she could, and send them along!
Then she suggested that to get death certificates, I contact the vital stats office in Alberta to proceed with that process. Here are the email addresses for each of them:
Lethbridge Gen.Society... email@example.com
Alberta Gov't vital stats... firstname.lastname@example.org
There are 2 types of death certificates; regular & medical. The latter is difficult to obtain unless you verify to them your relationship to the deceased. But, if the death took place >50yrs ago, it's a matter of public record & a medical certificate more easily had.
Hope this isn't all old news to you. But, I did want to share with you what I'd able to garner so far.
Good luck with finding your ancestor.
Have you tried the Mormon Library (www.familysearch.com
) to try & find a more precise date of death?? I have access to the LDS library in Mesa,AZ. (I live in Phoenix), and would be more than happy to go look up anything for you. I'm going there this week while on vacation from work. Just let me know.
