There is a brand new Ballendine surname board, just started. Please post your info.http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec?htx=board&r=rw&p=s...
I think Heather's advice is excellent about contacting people from Battleford. I see a Sheryl Ballentyne is on the town
Also, you could inquire about Ballendine from a librarian.http://www.lib.sk.ca/Rex7/Detail2.CFM?Addresses.Library_ID=2...
Do you have a copy of your mum's marriage registration to Mr. Ballendine? Would think it would include his parents'
names, his birthdate and place.
Hope to see you on the Ballendine board.
