Hi Chris, my uncle Gerald has also done some searches on Elks in Canada, and
I have one in Saskatchewan, and one in Ontario, and an American ex-quaker,
but have not gotten into the search side of things, not familiar with using
the 'lists' or passenger manifests etc.....JR

Is true JR -many thanks. I may have to bite the bullet harder and look for
the birth certificates of the Elkingtons born in Coventry towards the close
of the nineteenth century. All those with two forenames are likely
candidates. Then, with their names, I can do a wider search.

Chris

Hi Chris,

Where in Canada is a good question, We have records of some Elks with
unknown links and origins, even here in victoria where they may have come
for at least a time because of the presence of our family and them being
distant cousins. Came across a woman two doors down who had Elkingtons
living in her house in 40s when my great uncle Eric (EHW, on my tree) was
friends with and visited a doctor living in the house I was living in 30
years later....Who knows what connections family ties may have made for
'cousins' passing through.

JR

Hi Ian, where does the Professor work? Yes I do work with the Aborigines -
just come back from a week in Kakadu National Park, teaching a diverse range
of park rangers to deliver training. I trained them to train others and then
assessed them while they conducted their training. Exciting stuff like
4WDing, catching and measuring crocodiles and recording stories of
dreamtime.

My grandmother Gertrude stayed in England, but some of her siblings moved to
Canada. She visited them shortly after WW2. She never settled in Canada.
Came back after a couple of years. Its her siblings I'd like to track down.
Perhaps a blanket letter to all Elks in Canada?

Chris

Hi Chris,

If you are working with the aboriginals you may well have meet a cousin of
yours and a brother of mine, Professor Bill Gammage.

Gertrude Annie must have moved to Canada after 1919 for that is when Alfred
was born in England. If Phyllis was born in Canada in 1926 that gives you a
window to search the shipping records. This site might give you a start.

There is no doubt given the date of migration there will be a shipping
record somewhere.

Cheers, Ian
