Canadian Low-German Mennonites Drafted or Recruited in World War I

Compiled by Glenn Penner

The following list was extracted from the web site http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/databases/cef/001042-100.01-e.php.

This database was searched for men with traditional Low-German Mennonite family names. My extraction may contain a few individuals who were not of Mennonite descent and there are certainly men who were missed.

Please contact me at gpenner@uoguelph.ca if you have any suggested additions or deletions. If you know of someone who was missed entirely in the database please let me know. I am sure that my grandfather and his brother are not the only ones who were missed in the scanning process.

The list contains the names of 99 individuals with highlighted links to the relevant images of the recruitment/draft documents.

I would like to thank those who responded to my first version of this database. As a result I was able to add another 6 individuals, including my own grandfather and his brother!
