We are researching our Grandfather Joseph J. Goodman who worked for the railroad at Sprague (?years), lived in Winnipeg abt. 1903-5 then moved to Calgary abt. 1906-7,8 then back to Winnipeg. We are told he and the family were offered land in Cochrane through the railroad for homesteading. We are interested in trying to find out where the land records would be and/or where there is information available on this time period and other records.
We will be coming to Calgary this summer to research and would like to receive any advice and information you can give.
Thank you, Harriet Hoffman, Honolulu, HI, USA
