Hi Laurelei

I have Edward's sister, Karoline in my database. Her grand-daughter, Johanna Deimert oo Emil Buss. Emil is in my tree.

It's interesting that both marriages for Edward occurred in Winnipeg, not Saskatchewan.   

Edward "Schnidel" oo 17 Jan 1907 Winnipeg "Ellen" Galenyewski
Edward "Schindel" oo 7 Apr 1917 Winnipeg Emily Riege 

No record of any children from his first marriage in either the Manitoba or Saskatchewan birth indexes.
No record of any death for Ellen (Helen) in Manitoba. As you pointed out, Saskatchewan only to 1916 at this time.

I tried a couple of variant spellings - Schindel, Schindle and Schnidel. The latter is the spelling given in the index with his marriage to Ellen Galenyewski.

I'm not beaten yet. I'm still on the case and will be in touch.

It took 20 years to find the marriage record for Edward Schindle and Helen (mystery name). Helen (the grandmother of a thousand names) is listed on her marriage record as "Galenyewski". Google informs me that this is not the name I'm looking for ;-)

Clearly, this name will be spelled many different ways. I need help!

Helen lived in Beausejour, MB at the time of her marriage. She was born in Germany in 1889.
I believe her parents lived in Canada at the time - since Edward's father in law shot at him around 1912. 

Helen gives her name as "Behrend" on her 3rd son's birth certificate. Later documents (her children's death records) have her listed as Kolmeski and Goloviesky.

The young lady died in 1917, but I can't access the SK death records for 1917 yet.
The Edward Schindle family lived primarily in Aberdeen SK, in Bergheim.
