Can Anyone Do Me a Favour???

Whilst searching for some information on my long lost Uncle Bob, I came across this little gem in the CITY of VICTORIA ARCHIVES website.

Namely that he is mentioned in the series of books:

Who’s Who in British Columbia (1931 to 1953)--Maurice S. Carter, ed.

Specifically Edition VIII -1950 edition (titled 1949-50).

Even more specifically I think it is on page 202.

He is the Robert Walker that married Jane Watt in 1903.

Now these books are impossible to get here in Scotland and as I know no-one in B.C. ( as I said "LONG-LOST Uncle Bob")I was wondering if someone, out of the goodness of their heart would be able to do a look-up for me and perhaps pass on any details that the entry in the book gives.

I do not know how thorough or how vast or how prestegious this collection is, or if it is just a glorified Telephone Directory, but any info that it contains would be of priceless value to me, as basically I have no other info at all, other than a couple of names of some of his kids, about this branch of my tree.

In return I would gladly do a look-up here in Scotland.

I will be at the Register House on thurs. next week for any B,D,M's. or as I live in Fife any specific help I can give regarding look-up's here in the "Kingdom" would be gladly offered.

I hope people do not think me too forward, making such a request but It would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for Reading this,
