Edmonton General Hospital

11111 Jasper Avenue, Edmonton

On this site in 1895, the Sisters of Charity of Montreal, known as the “Grey Nuns”, opened the doors of the original Edmonton General Hospital.  Their stated purpose “to minister to the temporal wants of suffering humanity without distinction of creed or nationality” became a reality. Since that time, thousands of Edmontonians have benefited from the best in medical care received at the Edmonton General Hospital.

I met a girl at the U of A in 1986-87 and I believe she had a child from me in Edmonton. Unfortunately I didn't get much info from her other than her name was Janet and she lived in a house in Bonnydoon (sic). I believe her parents were royal lines around Joanne Woodward and Paul Newman. I heard Janet died posthumously and wanted to help certify the birth with my official concerns for the child's health and wellbeing. I am planning to pursue this affair to the very end and hope you my help me with it Thankyou and reply, David Roland Joly 0865352 (AR06)
