Possible siblings of my great grandfather Albert are

1900 Alabaster, Iosco Co., Michigan
1910 as Albert McDonald 2-Wd Alpena, Alpena Co., Michigan
1920 flint Ward 1, Genesee, Michigan

Possible immigration year for Albert E. McDonell 1870 or 1873
Possible naturalization 1881

The 1879 marriage of Albert and Josephia was in the Presbyterian parsonage Harrisville, Alcona Co., Michigan by Rev. D. VanDyke
In 1890 Albert and Ella were married by Rev Leonard Hazard who was a Methodist Episcopal Minister

Albert McDonell’s family attended the Methodist Episcopal Church in Alpena, Michigan now the First United Methodist Church
My grandmother Lois Marian McDonell Married Oscar Olson on 3 June 1941 at the Methodist Episcopal Church in Alpena, Michigan (I have lots of info on their family)

Does anyone recognize my Albert or his parents??? Does anyone recognize the siblings of my
Grandmother Lois???

Can anyone give me direction on where to start my research for Albert, his parents and siblings in Canada???
