I have a good friend at Church that I was talking to about family research and he indicated that his father served in the Canadian Expeditionary Force during WWI and that’s all he knew about his military service.
I took the bull by the horns and found his records, ordered them from Canada and gave them to him. Later sitting around talking about the records he indicated that he knew very little about his grandfather and had no idea where he was born.
I love a challenge so I was off to see Mr. Google, and as of now I have found not only his family history but also his grandmother’s side of the family. I love the NET.
His family came from Canada and settled in Prairie, Skagit County, Washington. They owned and operated a shake mill for years. I have about 50 pages complete with pictures of his family history. Hope to get up to see him later this week with the find. Wish all my research could be this easy.
