I am looking for anybody who might have some more information on my grandmother's family- she was born in Beaverlodge in 1915 and her family came over from Manitoba in the year or two previous to that, they lived in the Halcourt area until about the 1940s-50s.

I would really appreciate any information anybody might have.

Hi, Your Grandmother was born in Beaverlodge - did the family stay there ?

What was your Grandmothers name? What were the names of her parents ?
Do you have any further information that might help others help you.
Did the family have a farm? Land Grant?
Do you know if anyone in the family - submitted family stories/histories to a Local History Book Project?
Have you searched the 1916 Census - for Alberta for the family -will show all family members living at the same residence.
Have you searched the 1911 Census for Manitoba?
It will show all family members at the same residence.
Cheers, Stella

My grandmother was Dorothy Medcalfe (possibly Metcalf or Medcalf or Metcalfe) born on January 1915 and she moved to Pouce Coupe and married my grandfather John Earl Merrick in the 1930's.

I have found her family in the Halcourt area on the 1916 census, but I have had no luck tracking down what happened to her brothers or what her mother's maiden name was.
