I'm trying to find a living relative of my cousin Mary Louise(Williams)Thirlwell. She was born in Davenport, Scott, Iowa 10 October 1892 to Frank Elliot Williams(1866-1898) and Louise Mary Falkner(1871-?). Her father died in 1898 and her mother re-married to Jacob Stofft(1854-1915). Jacob had been previously married and had 3 children. In 1911 they moved to Canada where he died in 1915. Mary Louise was married by then to Edmund Wright Thirlwell(1883-1957). When Mary Louise died 17 February 1981 in Langley, British Columbia, Canada. Her death certificated listed her daughter as Constance Marie Hamel. I'm trying to find more information on her and if she had any children. Any help would be greatly appreciated. You can reply to this or e-mail me directly at

Thank you Stella, This post is the topic I've been mulling over! It is always a little concerning when you a locate a descendant that you would like to share family history with in hopes they might become the might also want to participate. Many people are understandably concerned by someone contacting you from a family you didn't know existed claiming kinship and talking about families. Many never get over the belief you aren't after money even when you clearly state you aren't. Part of my interest is in hopes of inspiring some DNA confidential DNA testing for genealogy and I'm uncertain as to what the views are in Canada regarding this subject. I know many Canadian subscribers at Ancestry.ca are expressing interest in it but none of lines are even researching. If I make contact with living descendants do I risk offending the majority by bringing up at some point? I really appreciate any feedback you might have. Thank you, Dawn
