Hi, I am from the UK, my granddad was in the Canadian army, I have his marriage certificate from Thirtieth April 945 and it states his Private number as E/37001 (Harold Annett(e)). My nanna and granddad divorced as Harold wanted to return to Canada but my nanna wanted to remain in England. I have been tracing our family tree and am hoping that any military records may help me a little bit, I hit a stumbling block because I have records of Harold born in 1920 in Gaspe, Quebec but my search ends there although I have another person named Earle who was born at the same time in the same place, so wondered if maybe he used Harold on his marriage certificate because he as maybe using that name as Earle wasn't a known name in the UK.
Also on the marriage certificate Harold's father is named as George and Georg was also Earle's father....can anybody point me in the direction of where I may find anymore information or if Earle is a French Canadian form of the name Harold.
Many thanks and good wishes from people in blighty.
