Chapter 8 - Military Records
Military records may provide extensive information about the time a person served. Muster rolls, pay lists, medal registers, war diaries and ships logs are some of the records that exist. Information for those who served in the Canadian Expeditionary Force is available from Library and Archives Canada. The records after World War Two are only available to the person who served or to their immediate family providing they can prove the deceased has been dead for twenty years. Detailed information is found on the Canadian Genealogy Centre website.
