Good Evening Anthony; I have been trying to get a copy of my grandfathers birth certificate. Twice I have sent for it once with what I thought was his birthdate which I got off of his W.W.1 enlistement papers. The second time was with who I believe are his parents names and 6 different years to search through. To no avail I got back letters both times saying they couldn't find a birth certificate for him with information that was provided. I was wonder what course I could take now since I live in Canada. Respectfully yours Linda Witt.
