Helping hands helping one another with our family history & genealogy research.
Hi, I am trying to find out more about my Mum's fathers side of the family. He was Arthur Burnett Curtis born 1914.
He served in the Canadian Air Force in WW2, we believe he died in 1988, in Tillsonburg, Ontario, he was married before he married my nan in 1941 and had a son, he then married again after and had a daughter, who we believe lived in Calgary around 1988.
I think I have found his father, and his parents, but being new to this am not sure!
If anyone can give me any information at all on any of this family I would be most grateful. I have searched for his birth and death certificates, and marriage certificates and can only find the one where he married my nan, and we have the original for that!!
Thanks for any help you can give me.
Hi Sandra: This is the reply we got from the funeral home below (hope the others reply as quick) now it didn't provide as much info as I had hoped for but at least we have a date of birth now which will help when looking for military records.
I must say this is the first time I have found someone and their body was donated to Science. I found this very interesting since I worked in a Hospital for over 12 years and we had one or two people over that time that donated their body to science but the University would pick the patient up right from the Hospital not from the funeral home. They must have had a service first.
Let me see Tillsonbury, Ontario has a newspaper and maybe a obit was placed in that paper.
The date of birth for Arthur Burnett Curtis is February 27, 1917. He was born in Boston, Mass. USA. His body was donated to science.
Trust this is the information that you are looking for.
