The Graham and Peterson Families

The Graham and Peterson Families

Posted: 1259372158000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Peterson, Graham
Currently, I am searching for information on my family history, as it is one thing that really means tons to me. It will mean even more because several members of my family have either passed away or are having troubles. It would really mean a lot if anyone with information could contact me and let me know. Thanks in advanced,

Nathan Graham

Hi Nathan, Many GRAHAM and PETERSON families.
Always helps others help you - if you can provide as much information as possible - Given Names, Ages/Years of birth etc - perhaps family connections.
Time frame - for the research etc.
There are Census availble -1901,1906,1911,1916
Western Land Grants - Homesteads
National Archive of Canada - Soldiers of WW1

Do you know When, Where? any of the family members passed away?
Obituaries - may show names and locations of other family members - current to the time. You could then follow this up - or request help.

City Directories - for the time frame - will give you an idea where the family lived.

Alberta GenWeb Local History Books
Check the indexes for the books mentioned .
Search Alberta Heritage Digitalization Project.

In the Early 1940's we had The National Registration of All Canadians over the age of 16 years - This information is available - the cost $48.15 [a few years ago]

Cheers & Good Luck, Stella

The Master Surname Index (not online) (mostly burials in Alberta cemeteries) of the Alberta Genealogical Society lists some 800 GRAHAM names but none that fit your query.
