Yes, the registrations were microfilmed and the Vancouver Public Library has copies. I'll take a look at yours the next time I am downtown - probably in the next ten days or so. I don't think I have any connection to your Blackwells based on the information you provided, however.

Have you copied over Albert Edward's CEF Papers from the National Archives of Canada? http://www.archives.ca/02/02010602_e.html is the address and then just enter Blackwell Albert in the appropriate slots. He says his mother's name was Alice and that she lived in Nelson. He was born in Hampstead July 29 1887. You can apply for his war records if you want. The process is quite simple - it just takes a while for someone to work down through the stack to your request. So perhaps he was a grandson... I'll take a look anyway and might as well check out the other Blackwells living in the Kootenays (i.e. near Nelson) while I am at it. It only takes a few minutes.
