The linking project is not likely going to be useful to many people here, but I thought I'd give a demo for anyone interested.

-- Although -- just last night I found somebody a missing child from London, England, in the Home Children records, and then in the 1911 census in Quebec, and then in the WWI soldiers of the CEF records, so he's a prime candidate for some linking.

Go here:

copy and paste that url back together in the address bar of a window/tab.

You'll see ROSS MONCK highlighted in yellow.

Click on the "Links" link on the right of his name.

It opens another window/tab with two internal mini-windows. (Wait for them to load.)

One is to the CEF attestation papers -- you can click on the icon to see the image.

The other is to the page of the Virtual War Memorial commemorating his death -- you can click on

Commemorated on Page 472 of the
First World War Book of Remembrance.

to see the image of the gilded page in the book.

Just a quick way to see what info is available on those sites, too.

Now if anybody could ever find me Ernest Ross Monck's birth in the GRO ...

Have you tried searching the border crossings into America on Ancestry Annie? or even is free

They may have gone walkabout for a while....I know some of mine did.

Thank you so much - Dad's uncles emigrated, and would like to know what become of them.

Thank you Susan, for putting the web addy up; I'll be trying that out!

And Kathryn, thank you for that tip, too. Hubby and I both have Canadian ancestry (we're in England), so that'll be very handy!

Thank you both. :-))

It's popular around here. ;) We should mention that it's free access.

Unfortunately its search function is a whole lot more annoying than Ancestry's, although its transcriptions are more accurate.

One thing I like to mention about it -- there is a linking project.

For people in the 1901 or 1911 census who were Home Children or who were in the Canadian Expeditionary Forces or who died in WWI or WWII, you can request that a link be set up in the census record to the Cdn govt pages for those records.

It's a bit of a nice memorial, and can help others find the info. I've done it for a couple of family members.
