Thank you very much . I didn't have the address of the Grand Parents nor Albyns profession. I also had Judiths name as Maxwell from another source. This helps a lot. Everything helps and is greatly appreciated.

This is great! You just gave me another generation back to add to my husbands family tree..exciting. I appreciate  your time. I'm a newby to searching..I'm assuming that when it says Richard 27, born Stratford means that his birth sir name was Stratford and not Collins? Correct me if I'm wrong please. Thanks again!

No, he wasn't born a Stratford! It's his place of birth, probably Stratford, Ontario, but it will need another source to confirm. Are you able to click on the links to see the original records?

Do you have a profile set up for anyone in this family? There are definitely more records, I just stopped because I needed to go to bed!!
Thank you for the clarification . I am able to click on the original records, just haven't looked at them . I don't think I have much of anything set up for his family, maybe his birth mother . I'm just starting to dig deeper into his family. It was just within this past year I found my husbands birth mother and birth fathers name. Looks like I have a lot to do. I am grateful for the info you sent, it sure helps when you are new at this.
No problem.

Let me know if or when you need any more help! I'm happy to assist!

Good luck :)
Thank you very much !
