On the 26th day of October 1916 Robert Brown Boardman was born to Robert and Ethel (Brown) Boardman. I knew him as “Uncle Boardie.”
I do not have a birth index listing or birth record for Uncle Boardie because the Canadian privacy laws restrict birth records going back 120 years.
This series of photographs in a set is all I have of my uncle at a very early age:
In this photo he is much better, yet still there is a scowl.
Here he is with his mother Ethel and he is still not that happy.
The Boardman children: Aileen with the bow in her hair, Boardie who is the baby and Marjorie.
