Yes Judy, I am a relative of Home Child John Menzies. He was my grandmother's brother.

Mollydog, I would like to chat with you in a private message. I am new to the posting area. Do you know how I can contact you via email.

I was at the farm or next door to the farm that Home Child (British Home Child/BHC) John Menzies was at while he was in Ontario.

I also have a photograph of a 1914-1918 Honour Roll that has your John's name on.

I would like to get and share more about this boy.

You can contact me privately through this site, but it has been many years since I have done so and I am not sure how you do it. Somebody on the site will know.

Also, my genealogy is all packed away and I will have to get it out and refresh my memory. I only found out about John Menzies through researching and what information my grandmother could remember about him. After he was shipped off to Canada as a small boy, he was never seen or heard of again.

What would you like to know?

If you look just to the left of this post you should see a little GREEN thing that looks like a sheet of paper I think you just click on that and send me a private message. I think I just sent you one by doing this.

I hope it works.
