I am writing from Quebec and I have 2 questions:

Would anyone have access to obituaries for 1954 ? I am looking for the obituary for Antoine Chevrier.He apparently died in Vancouver in 1954 but I have no other information. He may have also called himself Jean Baptiste Antoine, Jean Baptiste Antonio or JBA Chevrier.

He was born in Rigaud Quebec in 1877 and was living in Vancouver as of 1909 when he married Alice Mary Belier. Alice Mary had died in 1942 and was buried in Ottawa. I'm not sure what Antoine was doing in BC.

2) What was the name of the city directory for Vancouver in the 1950s ? In Quebec, we have Lovells Street Directory for Montreal which is on the net.(BANQ) These directories not only give you the name of the resident but his occupation. Did you have the same thing in BC ? If so, under what name is it and is it accessible to the public ?

Many thanks
