Hello, I am looking to confirm the identity of a Mabel Burns (nee Gee) who immigrated to Canada around 1913. My conflict is that I had a Mabel Gee listed for my research but now I have a new Mabel Beatrice Gee on the scene with similar details and I need to clarify things.

The details that I have at this time on Mabel are:
- Born Mabel Gee 10Apr1889 in Liverpool, England.
- Baptised 22May1889 at St Johns The Baptist, Toxteth.
- Father was Benjamin Gee born circa 1863.
- Mother was Annie Gee (nee Tickle).

- Married Tom Tiffin Burns; date and location unknown.
- Arrived Alberta Canada 1913 according to 1921 Canadian Census.
- Had two children as at 1921 Canadian Census; Olive Burns age 5 and Gladys Burns age 2 born Alberta.
- Tom born 1892 in Crosby Cumberland, went to Canada in 1901 as a miner and worked 6 yrs. Came back home in UK on 1911 and then bounced back to Canada same year?
- Tom dies age 91 on 26 May 1983 Burnaby Canada.
- Mabel died 1992 in Vancouver age 103.

I would like to identify if this Mabel Beatrice who married Tom is the same as my Mabel by confirming her birthdate/place/parents if possible.
If this proves good, would like to know as much as possible about what they did over there and of course down the line to their children Olive and Gladys.

Appreciated, Pete
