View Full Version : Help to locate a passenger (anybody got Ancestry worldwide?)
19-04-2006, 7:12 PM
I wondered if anybody had access to Ancestry world-wide. After hunting high and low for a g.grandfathers first wife and daughter I have know found out their emigrated to America.
I have looked through the Ellis Island list of passengers but the only free list I think is to early for when I think they emigrated.
If anybody could be so kind and look for a Mrs Margaret HOWSE (b. 1881) and her daughter Irene Olga HOWSE (b. 1904) they were living in London before they left. I know she was still in London in 1914.
Thanks very much Julie

It might be her, I only have a rough idea from the 1901 census that made her dob abt 1880. I don't think it is far off that though.
How can I found out if this Margaret Howse was an ex-pat??
How do I go about obtaining a death certificate?
Sorry for all the questions

Go to this site: http://search.bcarchives.gov.bc.ca/sn-352F42/view/Deaths/find-adv%2B%20givennames%3D(margaret)%20AND%20surname%3 D(howse)%20%2B%2B%2B%2B/2
Page to the bottom, and select on Digital Copy in the shaded box titled 'Information on Usage'. It costs about $20 CDN (roughly 9 British Pounds), but you have it right away.
But with nothing to lead you to believe she was in Canada, it's a long shot...

well, I was given this information by Margaret's grand-daughter, and other information passed to me hasn't been quite accurate (it was a long time ago) and I know now to take the information passed down with a pinch of salt.
My nan told us she was an only child, it turns out she had 6 1/2 brothers and sisters!!
So she may well have gone to Canadian, Russia or Mars nothing would surprise me.
Thanks for all the information, I will have a look into it tomorrow,

I dropped in to the Vancouver Library today and obtained the death certificate for the Margaret Howse who Debbie found in the B.C. Vital Index. I suspect this person is not the right person but who knows. She was born in Parry Sound, Ontario.
The father is shown as Thomas Adair and mother is (christian name unknown) Thompson. She is the widow of John Alexander Howse.
Let me know if there is a connection.

Hi, Thank you very much for checking out the death for Margaret, as you suspected its not the right person.
I suspect that she probably emigrated later post 1930 and thats why see can't been seen on the censuses yet.
I was surprised to see that the 1930 American census information was available, when do you expect the 1940 on to be released?
Thanks to everyone,

Not for another 4 years...
Edit: Just checked, it's another 6 years. There's a 72-year restriction on the release of US census access.
