Karen,

Does it list only the person or the entire household?

Thanks!

Hi JJ and Josephine,

It only lists the person's name on it, but one of the questions is

Of what dependents (if any) are you the sole support?
a) father
b) mother
c) wife
d) number of children under 16 years
e) number of other dependants
f) do you contribute partial support to any one

It also asks for Country of Birth
a) yourself
b) your father
c) your mother

My grandfather just answered Ontario Canada for his parents


Another section are the following questions

16 a1) Were you brought up on a farm?
a2) Until what age?
b1) have you worked on a farm?
b2) how long
b3) In what province or country?
c1) can you handle horses?
c2) drive a tractor
c3) use farm machinery?
c4) can you milk?
c5) are you able to do other farm work?

17.  Is there any particular occupation in which you would like to be specially trained?
My grandfather answered ground man in air force

18.  Defence Services

It also asks about Nationality, education, health, class of occupation, occupation or craft and unemployment.

I think I would order another one for a family member, it confirmed a couple of little things, but confused me on other's (which my grandfather has been very good at!)

Hmm

I now know the address of Edwin 'Ted' Edwards in 1949 , He died about 1976
His daughter Florence was at this address, and his wife Alice proabably was too - I don't have a death date for her.

I'm not really sure that I would get that much oout of this Registration information

I'm  sure his sons and other daughter had long left home, and no address know for them at this date

Hi All

I'm Canadian by birth and did not know about this National Registration until I started digging around for information on my grandparents who emigrated to Canada (and Saskatchewan) from Wales.  Through all of this I was able to identify dates of birth, ages (in 1940), placesof birth and an estimate of the years they had been married (my grandmother indicated she had been a 'housewife' for 37 years).  As I have some doubts about my father's actual relationship to the grandparents I came to know he may have been adopted or transfered from Wales), I am considering accessing the file again for his details.  Unfortuneately, he passed in 1994 so I will take my chances.
Cheers

welshlinks has an ancestor who came to Canada at age 15...
http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,338520.msg2181416.html#msg2181416

am wondering if he was a home child, or if there is any new information found about him...
welshlinks hasn't been on in some time, but perhaps reposting, we can get an answer as KarenM can perhaps find more information now...J.J.
