My Granmother was Betty Irene Wiggins, later married Peter Hook , Born august 7 1928. She had a father Jospeh Wiggins and Mother Lilian Taylor. She had bothers and sisters named Gord , Millie,  Gladys and I believe Russell . One of her brothers died as a teenager in by being hit by a car while riding a go cart with his friend . I also believe that she had a twin brother not 100% certain on that . I do know that her mother had passed away when she was about 10 years old so 1938 or 1939 . Her father had raised her in Toronto Ontario Canada . I know that a Jospeh Arthur Wiggins and a Lilian are buried at Mount Pleasent cemetery in toronto , and I see from some records she passed away first in the right time period . I am however stumped because some records show different people that my grandmother never mentioned . I am hoping for help with this  . I am looking to complete our family history,  especially for her oldest daughter Heather. If anyone has information on this please , please contact me . We have searched for answers for years and have found nothing .it epuld mean the world to us to finally know our family history.

Have you searched for census records?

Yes I have searched for records on ancestry. Is there another way ?

Yes, indeed, there is www.familysearch.org which has records in archives that were issued by city, county, state, nation and that includes Canada [and many many other nations] and whatever its civil districts are named (prob. not county or state, but I specialize in USA and am not "up" on other nations) 

AND there is "Kitty's Library" here at Wikitree, a directory that it will advantage you to explore for Canadian (free) information websites -- the directory is HUGE ... fabulous site!!
