How do I start with your genealogy group.?  My mat. grandmother Ruth Weaver married Stanley Brewer in 1906 in British Columbia, Canada. He was born 1880, she in 1887.  She was born Tyldesly Lancashire, England and Grandfather Stanley was born in Sedgeley , Stafford, England in 1880 .  Grandmother Ruth was the daughter of Jabez Weaver born 1854 he  died in Coquitlam, British Columba, Canada in 1925 (in a mental hospital called Essingdale, located in Couqitlam, B.C.).  Grandfather Weaver married Diana Randall in 1873 in England.  My grandmother Ruth died in Vancouver British Columbia, Canada in Dec 1980. Grandfather Jabez Weaver married Matilda Randel, who was born in Sedgley Stafford England in 1857.      I have a membership with  Family Tree, have searched what family records there are, searched encylopedias, have written letters, you name it, I cannot get past Diana Randall. Thank you for your time, I do hope you can help me make a connection.  Sincerely, Sylvia Lynne Smith born December 1937, Natal, B.C., Canada.
