    Any help would be really appreciated in trying to trace a Doreen Mooney, retired Teacher, last known address: Apartment 203-10230--106 Ave, Grande Praire, Alberta T8V 5G8
    Her telephone number is dead but I will post it here anyway 0101-403-7662209
    Doreen also had an adopted daughter Linda would love to trace her also.
    Adopted son John died about 15 years ago in an accident.

    We haven't heard from Doreen (my mother's cousin) in a long time & all attempts at contact have failed, wonder if she is still living, she would be in her 70's now.

    TIA!

    Also I just looked at the phone number you have if she lives in G.P. her area code would 780 not 403,that is for southern Alberta only.I think I have an old G.P. phone book around let me have a look and i will see if her name is in it.

    Hi, Alta, Thanks for reply. She did live in Edmonton, would that code be for there?
    Do you have any idea where that address is in GP? Would it be convenient for you to call there, please don't go to any trouble.

    LOL that's a lot!

    Edmonton is 780 as well.as for the address yes i know where it is,its actually just a couple of blocks down from where i used to live.I looked everywhere for my old phone book and I cannot find it but i will look through my moms.If you want to pm your personal information,name phone number etc..I will even stop by the apartment and if she still lives there i will give her your info.
    How long has it been since you have been in touch with her? Do you know if her daughter is married and if so her last name?

    I would more than happy to help you try and find Doreen,I hope I am succesful.I did look through the phone list Christine supplied and do not see any from the G.P. area,unless she has moved.

    I did a reverse search on the phone number you have,and it is a cell phone in High River,Alberta.The name is unlisted.High River & Grande Prairie are a good 800 km's apart.Do you have any other phone numbers at all?I did search her name in G.P. and there was nothing at all.I will still go to the address with your info.Lets keep our fingers crossed if she does not live there anymore someone may remember her.

    That is so weird Alta, that was definitely the number that I last spoke with her on some years ago.
    You are going to so much trouble for me, I hate all this inconvenience for you but thanks so much.
    I am wondering is there a death register that could be accessed online?

    When asking in her area someone might remember her adopted son John, he died in a fall some years back.
    Doreen was never married apparently that is an area where single people can adopt children. Both children were of Indian descent.
    I so remember Linda coming to visit with Doreen when she was young, I didn't have a sister & we became so close even though she was a little younger. I remember crying so hard when she left, just horrible to think I will never see her again or know what has become of her.

    Brilliant Alta, thanks so very much. Good luck & I hope you find her.

    Glad there's nothing in the obits, you are so good to do this for me!

    I tried to get more info from my mother but she knows no more than I do.
    I will be out for a few hours but will be home later tonight :blowkiss:
