wow

that was quick many thanks...i've had a quick look...so much to take in ..looks like loads of info

I was on the birmingham forum a couple of years ago and i saw jake  posting...i followed his posts for a while because so much in them seemed familiar....and right....eventualy I summed up the courage to send him a message...asking if he was my long lost cousin.....I never had a reply.

I found another cousin earlier this year and he told me jake had passed away  weeks before I sent the message.....i was really upset..i felt as though i had got to know him and i had so many questions to ask him....

I could see he was getting lots of help ...but obviously never saw any of the actual research.....

thank you so much for your help

Oh, no, how sad.... :-\  He surely enjoyed the hunt on here. Karen & I and so many others on here have an extra soft spot for these wee ones. Look through Jakes threads, and answer on a couple of them for now, ( maybe the main one in Canada and the main one in the U.K. as we may find more now that more info is made available online. That way you will get notified should anyone find more...
all the best, J.J.

Emmm if you want to find Jake's other entries, just go to search above and enter his username and the surname. He made many duplicate entries for the same searches...try not to do that if you make threads on here, as it causes a lot of confusion and duplication of resources as you'll see when you read through...
and welcome to rootschat by the way...

Hi Emm,

I'm so sorry to hear that Jake has passed away :( 

I was able to go to Ernest's grave in Miami, Manitoba.  I have a picture.  I know Ernest had a wife  and child, but never found  where the went.

I also have Frederick's WW1 records if you are interested.

Who all came to Canada in a little row boat, clap clap, clap your hands!!

yes please

I know he joined the canadian infantry in 1915
and died from his wounds in France 1918

Having seen when Ernest died(before him)..this explains why my father had his medal and infantry pin....I assume they were sent back to England to his older brother...my grandfather (never knew him)

Any information which helps me to build up a picture of them would be fantastic...
