    This is one of the occupations that showed up in my tree. What the heck is a joiner?

    Agricultural Labourers. We have to admire them.

    I have so many of these in my tree it isn't funny. That and "farm servant" and ploughman are the top 3. I wonder what their lives were like.

    Causes of death in Alberta Canada

    I've looked around the net and found several sites for Alberta Canada geneology and even for death records, but they haven't been very helpful. Is there an online source I could search for causes of death of ancestors before 1950?

    Mary Clark

    While searching for death info on another ancestor, Angus Stewart, I discovered the maiden name of his wife. She's 64 years old in the 1901 Scotland Census, and as of 1915, Angus' year of death, he's listed as her widower on his own death record. She died some time between 1901 and 1915, in...

    Whoops. Found out the hard way that this isn't her! For now, she's a dead end. I found out some things about her husband's family though.

    Isabella Stewart (nee Coutts)

    Yep, I'm sure that's the right family! I don't have her marraige certificate though. I wonder why her father's not on the census too. I'd love the details. Could you please go one further back and find out who Agnes' parents were, as well?

    Hello, I need help finding the parents and grandparents, any family, of my g-g-grandmother, Isabella Stewart (Coutts). She was 43 in the 1901 census and married to David Stewart. I believe her maiden name was Coutts. I don't know where she was born in Scotland.

    Ascenscion, Louisianna

    One of my ancestors might be from Ascension, Louisianna. What sort of French populations live here. Trying to determine if my ancestor may have been Acadian, Cajun, or some other. Thanks!

    Mary Jack Stewart

    That's strange, because I'm sure that's the family. There's even my late grandfather's aunt Liz there! If that's them. I wonder what happend to Mary, why she may not have been living with them. I saw her at 12, or someone with her name, living in another household, without her parents, and with...

    Gaundreau/Gondron/etc origins and meaning?

    That's too bad. I wonder what surname it originated from. I'm trying to find out what French population one branch of family came from.

    Brick Wall: <First Name unknown> Gaundreaux/Gandereau/Gandrove

    Thanks for all your help. I don't think it will be possible to narrow down Jiseph Gondron any further. It may have been the correct one who died in 25 Feb 1918, Ascenscion, Louisianna. He left his family at some point in his life to return where he came from. I'm not sure why he would have done...
