Searching CEnsus Records GEneology Ancestry Chisholm Chisum Chisom Family Tree Researching October 2017 – Linda Randall Chisholm Harold Chisholm
the idea girl says
I’ve been looking for Census Records for the past 10 years for the Chisholms. It took me this long to figure it out!
October 25, 2017 (I found it Monday, Tuesday) and made a special page for it on here so I refer back to the details and compare the names, dates of birth and Census records.
Given Name SEARCH
after you choose the LAST NAME at the top for your search
the next box you want to fill out it the GIVEN NAME
this is the FIRST NAME of the person you are looking for
So I chose
for the last name
for the GIVEN Name
it brought up several records for me to look at.
Then I compare the names of the “others” listed with the person to see if it’s the correct “family” I am looking for!
So with Grace Chisholm

so when I SEARCH the CENSUS records I’m going to look for
Grace Chisholm date of birth 16 Dec 1901 to find the correct one.
Then I’m going to look at surrounding family names to see if I have the RIGHT one.
Interesting with the census records you can find out where they lived and who they lived with…

Obituary, The Recorder, April 1, 1926
Death of Mrs. J. W. Chisholm
The death of Mrs. J. W. Chisholm, which occurred on March 14, 1926, came as a shock to her relatives and friends. The deceased who has been in poor health for some time was thought to be improving when a relapse set in and she died very suddenly Sunday morning, at 4 a.m. The funeral was held over until Wednesday, the 17th, to allow her two her two brothers, W. A. Chisholm of Hornepayne, and H. W. Chisholm, of Wiarton, to arrive.
Mrs. Chisholm was born on Manitoulin Island 24 years ago, and leaves to mourn her loss a husband, J. W. Chisholm; and five little children, the youngest five weeks old; Mr. and Mrs. W. W. Chisholm, of Thessalon, her parents; Miss Lina Chisholm, her half sister; and four half brothers, all of Thessalon; Mrs. R. G. Riching, Gore Bay, sister; and W. A. Chisholm, of Hornepayne, Ont; H. W. Chisholm, of Wiarton, Ont., brothers. The many floral tributes go to show the high esteem in which she was held by all who knew her.
Mr. J. W. Chisholm and Mr. and Mrs. W. W. Chisholm wish to thank the many friends who so kindly assisted them in their recent sad bereavement.
