BettyJean Dziekan My granny was born in Manchester in the late 1800's. She had a sister Beatrice, I know, who lived in a home for those needing care. She had diabetes and was not well.MY granny remembers having to turn the lights out during the war (which one?) as a child and being afraid of the bombs.
Granny's name was Gertrude Kendall. She also had other sisters and brother(s). At some point Granny married, either in Canada or England ,came to Canada, and gave birth to my mom in 1920-21, Margeurite Gladys Linklater. For some reason unknown to us, Granny remarried a John Aitken from Stratford,Ontario. They lived in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada and then moved to Fife Lake, Saskatchewan, Canada and Minto, Manitoba.John Aitken worked with horses in Fife Lake and Minto, farming as well. They had 4 children together, 3 daughters and a son.John (Grandpa) then worked for the Canadian National Railway until his retirement in Winnipeg Manitoba in the 1960's.
A couple of years ago, I was in Manchester and looked up an address I had for a Kendall, but was not successful in getting information that was helpful to my family history search of who my Mother's father was. This Kendall family had owned a cigar shop in Manchester in the past.
I am in England right now visiting and do not have proper info with me that would be useful to add more details. I do have an address and names of people I visited in 2003, and can add this info to my story, if that would be helpful to anyone out there who culd possibly help me. I know this is a far stretch, and very vague, but I am really feeling a need to pursue this.
Please email me at [contact link]
I live in British Columbia, canada and would love to hear formanyone who could help. Thanks a bunch. take care..Betty-Jean
Granny passeda way around 1979 in Winnipeg after a stroke debilitated her.
