Research Notes

  • Birth record not found despite searching 1885-1890 Ontario births for various name combinations and manually reviewing Harwich Township and Blenheim birth records for the time period.
  • 1911 Census transcription has Balles rather than Nelles
  • 1921 Census lists surname as Nillas
  • Death record not found, likely because it is too recent to be publicly available.
