My initial thought for the name was....in a foreign accent  ;D
Buchan Gorten (Gordon) Harry or Henry ???

Does anyone know what the pronunciation of George would be in German (by Enumerator)?

I found this birth............in Lancashire, UK not too far from Newcastle, UK

If this lad was brought up initially in Newcastle he may have believed it to be his place of birth ???

Scraping the barrel but one never knows  ;D


Name: George Henry Buchan
Registration Year: 1893
Registration Quarter: Jan-Feb-Mar
Registration district: West Derby
Inferred County: Lancashire
Volume: 8b
Page: 384

On a census would read: Buchan George Henry ???

Georg in German is pronounced GAY-org. Both Gs are hard.

I think that would be an embarrassment of riches... our guy can't be in both 1901 UK and Canadian censuses... :P

Although I have a great-grandfather who emigrated in 1871 and MISSED both  >:( >:( >:(

I guess it's Four Corners, although it looks like Rour. Now part of Toronto (Tranna if you're Canadian  ;D)

I think this is Michael Henry's WW1 draft reg. b. August 1, 1889, Newcastle, Northumberland
living in Watertown, NY.....says he served 7 years as a private, infantry, with the Dominion
of Canada.

I am not finding attestation papers on A*, and LAC isn't working for me. Can someone
see if they can find his papers, would love to know his nok.

I have lived here most of my life and have never pronounced it Tranna.  Maybe the enumerator we're looking at would have.
