I am desperately looking for any information on two women - my grandfathers wives.
Amelia Getzel b 1868 in Russia of Polish parents.She was married to William Leeson in Winnipeg in1889.She was rumoured to have come from the Beausejour area but I can find no record of that name anywhere. She had three children and died in 1896.
I would like to know when she came to Canada or if she had any relatives here or any other information I could find about her.
The second is Rosina Phoebe JonesShe was born in England in 1870 came to Canada in 1888 but we know nothing about her until 1897 when she married William Leeson and had five children.
I am looking for any information as to where she might have been for those 9 years and if she came to Canada alone or with family.When she arrived in Winnipeg she was with a sister Alice Jones but wehave no information about her earlier years either.
I would be very grateful for any ideas or assistance any one might be able to provide
