Hi, I have been trying to find out Oscar Carl's parents' names for years! He was born Oscar Carl Olson, which could also be spelled Olsen, Olsson, Oleson...

How did you determine his actual birthdate? I also know that he & Addie May Hope were married in 1909, but have been unable to ascertain the exact date or location.

All I know is that Oscar & Addie were married as Olson, and at some point after the 1910 US Census they moved & changed their name to Edglie; but I'm not sure which occured first, the move or the name change.

Hi Brenda,
I have a copy of Oscar Carl Edglies Death Cert. from BC Archives.
It states his birthday as 2 Dec. 1880. Born in Wisconsin, in Canada 30 years. His death was 9 March 1942 so take away 30 and there should be an immigration document somewhere (easy for me to say). The person that wss the informant was Mrs. S E Haroldson, from Seattle, Wash. (daughter). You can go to BC Archives, Vital Event, Deaths and type in his name. That is also where I found Addie May Edglies death cert. On her cert if states she was in the province 8 years. So that gives us Sept 1920 - 8 years = 1912 for her immigration. I will check some records too and we can try to solve this mystery. I still have shopping to do, so must run, talk to you later. Gloria

Hi Gloria,
For some reason, I never saw your reply. One of my other relatives researching another line in our mutual family came across this & pasted it to an email he sent me. I'm so sorry that I didn't reply & thank you for the info.

I'm Oscar & Addie's great granddaughter, as their daughter Charity was my maternal grandmother. My grandma was very vague about Oscar's info, as she felt family "secrets" were to be kept just that. So details were never really discussed.

Back before the internet, I sent requests for immigration records to Canada for Oscar and got nowhere. I will try the agency you've listed.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you'd like at ba_42a56@yahoo.com

Hoping you have a great day!

Hi Brenda,
It's been so long since I was on this site that I forgot my password! Too many numbers now a days. I also haven't been able to track down much about Oscar. Like I said before, I do have a copy of his death cert. so I will try and get a copy to send to your yahoo account. My printer is a pain, it shrinks everything and then hides it in my pictures program (certainly couldn't be my fault)but I will do my best. Lil, my girlfriend that I am doing this for, also has a very vague background. Her parents didn't tell the family anything, her mother was blind and had 10 children, father went blind after being in the war and having schrapnel pieces all over himself. He took Lil out of school in grade 6 and she became his seeing eye daughter, spent most of her time trying to survive.
She had no idea who her grandparents were when we started so it is kind of rewarding to help her out. Evelyn Francis Edglie (Charity's sister) was Lil's mother, she passed away May 6, 1985. Talk to you soon, gloria

I came across this post when googling Oscar Carl Edglie, he's the father of a DNA match of mine, and I'm doing a reverse family tree search where I don't know the name of my grandfather.
Anyway, I have a census record for Oscar where he states he was in Illinois in 1909, but then his daughter Hope was born in Canada in 1914.
I have his parents names as John Olson and Myra Rena Mogle.
Could either of you please advise of his children Floyd, Evelyn, Peggy and Fay, who was born to Addie and who was born to Eva? The other children I have the correct mother assigned.
Kind regards,
