Hi Do you have any other information you can give. I've searched on the surname McNamara at the Canadian Libraries and Archives site and got 2,463 results.
Peace, Greetings & Salutations. Many thanks for your help.
Given Names, Edward David. DOB, 16 August, 1931,in Saint John, NB Canada.
Died, 16 August, 1983, in Calgary, AB Canada.
Mother, Elizabeth Ann McNamara (nee McAuley)
Father, Joseph Leo McNamara
I know this isn't much, I sure hope it's useful.
What sort of information are you looking for? Just to let you know that I cannot help find descendants of Edward as they may still be living.
As far as I know I'm the end of the line. But I could be wrong. I'd like to get a death certificate and find out how he died. It would be nice to find out if he left me a stepmother and some half brothers or sisters. (But that's for me to dig up.) There may be some clues in there that could help me track down my grandmother Elizabeth Ann "Bessie" McNamara who lived in Ontario. These items will fill the holes in my tree. with it I can go back as far as 1860. Any thing you find is better than what I already have and is appreciated.
Loookssss like!!!!! all of my friends have climbed over each other to make a spot for me. One did a solid and sent me an address.
Hi there, Edward's mother was my grandmothers sister, Emily
The only thing l've been able to find that's female kin of Elizabeth, is a woman Sadie McAuley she'd be my fathers.
I don't know if that helps or hurts. If I may be of help in future, McM

Just thought . have you tried contacting , National Archives of Canada , I found them very-helpfull.
there were actually a few sisters and a brother who passed away, all the actual family has passed except of no knowledge of bessie. My nanny emily was the youngest of the family. Bessie may have went back to PEI where the family is actually from. I sent a message with my e-mail if you would like to get in touch with me. Janet
-Sneezyhappy; I did try, National Archives but all that I Managed to get from there was a parcel delivery telling me that my taxes have been raised and a pissedoff look from the driver for forcing him to work 1 minute passed 4PM. (I thought it was work a chuckle).Actually I did get a couple of nuggets of information that helped, but not much.
McNamara associated with variants such as your example (I would never have thought of it)THANKS HEAPS!!!
As far as I can tell Bridget had 2 daughters 1 was murdered as a child and the other was my Grandmother. If you have info you'd like me to compare I'd be happy to. If I come across something interesting I'll let you know. If I don't find anything I'll share that too.
There were 6 kids in the family:
Elizabeth Harper (your grandmother)
Emily Truple (my grandmother)
My grandmother died not knowing if your grand-mother was living or not, no one heard from her in years. Last place she was known to live was in ontario. Sadly the rest of the sibling are all deceased.
My grand mother was the youngest, they were all born in PEI
Made a typo her name was Turple
Your grandmothers parents names were Ronald and Bridget (McKenna) McAuley
Edward as I was told passed away from a heart attck, he served in some form of the army
