I have recently been given the name of my grandmother's father. For many years it has been a blank spot, both on her birth certificate, and my family tree. She has long since passed away, but I would love to trace him and his family.
So far, I have discovered Claude McGuire settled in Saskatchewan around 1901 from South Australia via England, possibly in the Bracken area, as that was where he was living by 1915 (according to a newspaper article when he came back to visit family). I have been given these bits of information by other kind researchers, as well as a later border crossing record that said his wife was named Ella, and possibly a son Louie.
I would love to find any further information, or make connection with other researchers tracing this family.
