Looking for my husbands father

Query by Faequine

I know alot about the history of my own family, Terrault and Woodcock, going back 6 or more generations in Canada.

My husbands family not so much. His mom, a Carter, has about 4 generations history in Canada. But of his father we know almost nothing.

All i know is that his name was Robert "Bob" Welch, he left his wife and 2 sons when they where queit young. My husband figures he was about 3 or 4. Last contact from his father was in 1987, Black Friday after a destuctive tornado stuck Edmonton, AB. He called from some where in BC. That is all i know, and i would like to find out anything about this man or his family. Oh, he had a previously relationship before my husbands mother. He has breifly mentioned having older half siblings, i guess him having younger half sibling is a possiblity too.

Any help would be great.

I'm assuming Robert Welch was born in the 60's, so relatively quite young himself and very likely to be still living. Is that correct?
If so all I can think of is phone books and electoral rolls. That's assuming he votes. Pity you don't have mandatory voting it makes finding someone so much easier.
Your husband could probably try the records office armed with his own birth certificate and ask if his father is alive or not.
was there a marriage? was there a divorce? did he pay child support? If yes to any of these, then there are records and you have a chance of tracing him. If not, well, I don't know, maybe put an ad in the paper and hope he wants his son to find him.
The best of luck to you Faequine.
