Part 850t – Smith McCullogh Genealogy – 1914 World War I Attestation – GG-Grandfather Alfred Wade Trefry

24 March 2013

Good Day,

Sometimes in my search and research I need to switch family lines when I come across a document when I have just been following a different path. As the genealogy and family tree continues to grow, the number of pathways into our ancestry continues to grow exponentially.

Today I discovered both sides of the 1914 World War I Attestation document for CK’s great-great-grandfather Alfred Wade Trefry. Previously, in my files I had stumbled upon only the front page. Now I have discovered both the front and back of the form.

Included on the form is the name of ggg-grandfather Capt. C(harles) K(nowles) Trefry. Note also that gg-grandfather Alfred is registered as having been a School Teacher at the time of his registration 23 September 1914. GG-Grandfather Alfred did become a Doctor.

The source of my discovery – Library and Archives Canada, Reference RG 150, Accession 1992-93/166, Box 9769 – 1. Here are the downloaded images. As they are pretty well legible I will not be transcribing them.

If you have any comment or question please feel free to contact me.

Hi Jim, do you know of any direct male Trefry descendants who've taken a yDNA test?
