Hi all-

I'm not sure if anyone can help me out with Canadian records or advice on how to go about looking for them;

Story so far and info I have:

I am searching for information on a Penelope Greenhalgh, birth details:
England & Wales, Birth Index: 1916-2005
about Penelope Greenhalgh
Name: Penelope Greenhalgh
Mother's Maiden Surname: Jones
Date of Registration: Jan Feb Mar 1943
Registration district: St Asaph
Registration county: Wales
Volume Number: 11b

Her actual dob: 09-01-1943


Births Dec 1912
--------------------------------------------------------
Jones Emily G Cornwall St.Asaph 11b 528

Emily's dob (penny's birth mum)

I have the certificate and know details are correct for the above, now it does say far left of the certificate "adopted" so I thought gro messed up and sent it out in error.

I have found a passenger record :

UK, Outward Passenger Lists, 1890-1960 about Emily G Greenhalgh
Name: Emily G Greenhalgh
Gender: Female
Age: 36
Birth Date: abt 1913
Departure Date: 27 May 1949
Port of Departure: Southampton, England
Destination Port: Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada
Ship Name: Aquitania
Search Ship Database: Search the 'Aquitania' in the 'Passenger Ships and Images' database
Shipping Line: Cunard White Star Limited
Official Number: 135538
Master: R B G Woollatt

landing at Halifax Nova Scotia
home address: Crumpsall, Manchester 8
occupation: Housekeeper
country of last permanent residence: Canada
Intended permanent residence: Canada
Travelling with daughter Penelope

Which also matches up with information I have. I have spoken to a distant relative of penelopes birth mother who told me Penelope is know as "penny" and was adopted by
Dorothy and red Conroy (Dorothy is Emily's younger sister) and she believes penelope grew up in Canada as a Gresley-jones Conroy but is not sure if this was official.

Now Dorothy passed away last fall in Richmond bc and she thinks penny could be in Vancouver area but she doesn't know if she married or is alive etc

I have information on Penelope's English parents Stanley and Emily whilst they were in England, I know that Stanley remained in the country and had another family but I'm unsure of what happened to Emily, I could find no further marriage deaths etc here in uk, and the relative I spoke to was unsure if Emily even returned she does not recall an aunt Emily growing up so I don't know what happened to her. But it's Penelope that in interested in as she would be my aunt in law if she was still alive but I don't know where to begin to start looking on this one, so if anyone can help or offer any advice on where to start it would be greatly welcomed thank you
