I started talking to my grandpa Hall ( Chester Hall) in the early 70's about his family. About 1978, he sent me a letter containing his family tree.
Here is a transcript of the contents of the page:

I tried researching one name in the paper census at the library and got frustrated. So, I left it until Ancestry.ca came along in 2008.

Since then I have proved and disproved many of the names he mentioned.

I plan to use WikiTree to go over my research and prove it from the ground up again.

Research Notes

1. William Hall April 5, 1831 Ann Walker Oct 10, 1910 2. Ann Walker Aug. 1917

The first two lines are my paternal second great-grandparents William Hall and Ann Walker.

I found a marriage record on Family Search [1]

The transcript is: Bridegroom Name: William Hall Age: 32 [1831] Residence: Arran Place of Birth: C. West Name of Parents: Robert Mary Bride Name: Mary Walker Age: 24 [1839] Residence: Arran Place of Birth: Ireland Names of Parents: Francis Elizabeth Witness Name: P Walker Residence: Arran Marriage: Novr. 3rd 1863

Vol. 13 Grey County 1858-1896

The place and ages are reasonable. Grandpa said her name was "Ann" but it is listed as "Mary". "Mary Ann" is a very common name. The record also states her father is Francis and her mother is Elizabeth. Just a comment based on experience: You wouldn't believe how many men named "Francis Walker" exist in the records.

I found a death record [2] The record shows William Hall died in Vancouver on 10 Oct. 1910 aged 78 (born in 1832). That corresponds to the family tree date.
