Notes:  Harvey Melvin Strome was born 22 Jul 1904 in the Rural Municipality of Daly, Manitoba, Canada.  He was the third child of Astor Sands Strome and Julia Maud Detwiller.  His older sister Myrtle was born in 1900 in Brandon, Manitoba, and his older brother Wilford in 1902 in Alexander, Manitoba.

In the 1906 Manitoba census, the family was living on Sec. 14, Twp. 8, R. 21, W1, with a Souris P.O., Manitoba.  Astor was a farmer, and the family had 7 horses and 2 milk cows.  Shortly after the 1906 Canada census, the family moved to Saskatchewan, where they homesteaded on Sec. 32, Twp. 37, Range 19 W2, on the road to Englefeld.  Harvey's sister Bertha was born in 1909, and sister Eva in 1911.

In the 1911 Canada census, Humbolt Twp., Saskatchewan, the family is enumerated on their homestead.  Harvey's brother Nelson (Bud) was born in 1913, and brother Frank in 1915.  In the 1916 Saskatchewan census, Humbolt Twp., their farm (same) is identified as being in St. Peters Municipality.  Harvey's sister Minnie was born in 1917.  By the 1921 Canada census, Harvey had left home.  Harvey's sister Dorothy was born in 1921, and brother James in 1926.

According to A History of Englefeld, 1903 - 1987, the family homestead was located at Greenside, and the children attended the Greenside School.

Harvey married Vera Dorothy Down of Didsbury, Alberta, some time before 1945.  In 1945, they are listed in the Canada Voters Lists in Red Deer, Alberta.  Harvey was a farmer.  His brother Wilford and his wife are also listed in Red Deer.  In 1949, Harvey and Vera are listed at 1118 Hillside Ave., Calgary, Alberta.  Harvey was a carpenter.  In 1953, their residence is listed as 1538 Hillside, Calgary.  In 1957 through 1974, their address is 530 35A Street NW, Calgary, Alberta.  Harvey is listed variously as a carpenter, contractor, or builder, and finally in 1968, he is listed as retired.

It is unknown when either Harvey or Vera died, and their burial place is unknown.
