Conrad Kraft & Louise Pahl | Evelyn in Montreal

I am looking for information regarding my great grandparents CONRAD KRAFT and LOUISE PAHL. I do not know when they were married but I suspect it would have been sometime around 1910 or thereabouts in Calgary Alberta. My grandmother was born in Calgary in 1915 so I am guessing at the year of their marriage.I do know that they both came over to Canada from Prussia or Germany with their respective families. I have seen one picture of my Great grandmother as a child but I do not know where it was taken. Conrad Kraft passed away in August of 1964 in Red Deer , Alberta and Louise Pahl Kraft passed away on August 12 1984 at the age of 96 years. She would have been born in 1888 or 1889 someplace in Prussia or Germany. She spoke and wrote German so I suspect her family came from Germany to Canada.

I thank you in advance


I believe I may have located your family in the 1911 Canada census as follows:

Graft Conrad 27 Alberta Calgary Calgary
Graft Jacob ?/12 Alberta Calgary Calgary
Graft Louisa 22 Alberta Calgary Calgary
Graft Maria 4 Alberta Calgary Calgary

This is one of a series of posts organized under the heading Evelyn in Montreal where I chronicle some of the work I have done with other family historians and genealogists. Some information is original to this site but some has previously appeared at Genforum, Rootsweb and other genealogy boards. I am reproducing them here as those boards are closing down in order to preserve my connections with those family researchers.
