Thomas E. Durran from Burlington, Ontario wrote on May 8, 2017 at 7:09 pm:
George W. Durran was 26 years old when he left the farm in 1915. The youngest son of John & Florina Durran (Percy Township, Campbellford, Ontario). They had already known tragedy when coming to Canada in 1887 by steamer due to the death of one of their twin boys , William, just two days from Montreal. To have lost yet another child in the fields of France near Carency on December 17, 1917 must have been unimaginable. George's courage and bravery in the face of such horror and hardship is well documented in the History of the Canadian 4th Infantry Battalion 1924. Thank you to the one who initiated this site, there will be at least one Durran who will visit Great Uncle George's resting place in 2017 to pay our respects and to become acquainted. Regards, T. Durran

A quite remarkable website - thank you.. I am researching all those on my local WW1 school memorial (Minster School, Southwell Nottinghamshire). This month we remember Frank Arnold Jebbett who,at just 17 years old, emigrated and settled as a homestead farmer just North East of the town of Venn, in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan. Frank was killed in action in the Great War 100 years ago this Month on Saturday 28 April 1917 whist serving with the 8th Battalion Canadian Infantry.
Seeing the image of the inscription was like completing the jigsaw - thank you.

Thank you so much to everybody who has contributed to this database. As well as helping with my family search, it has helped to make these ancestors and their contribution to our world more real. It is one thing to read names and dates on a computer screen, it is another to see the gravestones. I am very proud of the many relatives I have who served and very grateful to the people who are helping to preserve their history.

In my family history research I have found a lot of information of my families involvement in WWI. I have down loaded their service files and many of my family surname not related to me. All are Canadian. How can I help by donating my research results to this site. It consists of about 2 g's of scanned documentation and photos.

Welcome to our project guest book. We appreciate your comments.

Please do not put requests for photos in the guest book. We hope you enjoy your visit to the Maple Leaf Legacy Project web site and perhaps you can contribute to the database too, with photos or biographies of Canada’s fallen so that they can be added to their web page and archived for future generations.

Sue and I have been volunteers for the Maple Leaf Legacy Project for over a decade and have taken photographs from many countries and almost every province in Canada. It has been an incredible journey helping Steve Douglas with his ambitious project. We are still trying to complete the photography from Quebec and Ontario and hope that others will join us (and many others) in this amazing project which certainly deserves the term Legacy. Canadian War Dead gave so much more than we ever will.
