I have an index of individuals who were born, baptized, married or died from 1888 to 1915 in Winnipeg and were members of the German language Trinity Lutheran Church (Evangelisch-Lutherische Dreieinigkeitsgemeinde) at Duffern & Slater and currently Flora & King. Please send me a PM if you would like a lookup.

Certainly,

There is a Fellinger in the death records but no Fenning or Fennig.

In the birth and marriage records there are Fenglers but, again, no Fenning or Fennig

Sorry, :(

I agree Darrel. These two websites are great for family research in Manitoba. The OurRoots website has a huge collection of free town and family history books for the whole of Canada.

What is the advantage of Registering on the OurRoots website? Can you download whole books or something? I have just saved single pages with references I am interested in and I didnt need to be registered to do that.

I'm not registered and I can search and drag and drop page images to download them. Can you think of any feature you can use that isn't available if you aren't logged in?

What happens if you go to http://www.ourroots.ca/ and, before you have logged in, use the "Find a BooK" search box on the far right side? Does it fail?
