I found a brother to my great-grandfather, Thomas Cramer (pictured) by looking at Thomas’ attestation papers. He had been born in 1878 in England. His mother Mrs. F. Cramer is listed as his next of kin and the address is 94 Shaw Street North, Toronto. Frank Cramer’s attestation papers showed that while he was born in Toronto in 1895 his mother, Mrs. F. Cramer is listed as his next of kin and the address is also 94 Shaw Street North, Toronto.
There are a few sites online that make available military records. Ancestry.com (a subscription site) has good military records available. Library and Archives Canada (a free site) also has good records. Go to http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/military-peace/index-e.html . Library and Archives Canada holds an extensive collection of records of the Canadian men and women who have served their country in the military and in the early years of the North West Mounted Police. There are records relating to Loyalists, the War of 1812, the Rebellions, the South African War, the First World War and the Second World War, many of which are featured in databases, research guides and virtual exhibitions. The records include muster rolls, military service files, unit war diaries, medal registers, photographic collections, documentary art and posters, as well as published sources.
