I would like to know how to find (free) birth dates and death dates for my paternal great grandparents (John and Angeline McNeal) and great great grandparents (Robert and Eliza McNeal). I know they are buried in Victoria Lawn Cemetery, but can't seem to find any records of their birth and death dates. I would also like to find birth, marriage and death records. I have been able to locate them on several censuses. On another side, my paternal great grandfather (Peter Johnson) emigrated from Norway and married in Buffalo, NY. I feel there is a possibility that he and his future wife (Ase Andrea Anonsdtr) came through Canada. The McNeals were hotel keepers. When I was a child, we visited Ontario and stayed at a hotel there. It was supposedly run/owned by a "cousin" named Kretchman or Kritchman. I think it was in Hamilton, Ontario. I would be interested in any knowledge of the hotel and it's history. Any help would be appreciated.
Mostly Nova Scotia (Lipsett, McMaster, Bruce, O'Brien) and Quebec (Pleau, LaMothe, LeClair)
