Thank you for sharing with me Howard Brown’s obituary. I have been looking for news of him for quite a while. Although only has Ontario, Canada Deaths to 1938…

Ontario deaths have been released to 1940, so you should be able to get a copy of Howard’s death registration, for free. Read about how to do it here…

It is a two-step process. You will first have to ask your local library to inter library loan the index to deaths microfilm for 1939…

MS 937, Reel 28

from the Archives of Ontario. Look up his name, place of death and date of death, and learn the registration number.
Being a bit impatient, I would also, at the same time, ask for an interlibrary loan of the Registrations of Deaths for Lanark County in 1939.

MS 935, Reel 626

That way, you can look up the registration number (MS 937, Reel 28) and then right away, look up the actual registration in Lanark County (MS 935, Reel 626).

Otherwise you will have to wait for Ancestry to post 1939 deaths, which might take a year or two.

So…now I know that Florence died after 1939, or after age 59. Thanks. When my curiosity gets the best of me, I may think about asking for a search.
