Captain Jack Lawrence Labow (Royal Canadian Army)

Reaction score
On 25th July 1946 Captain Jack (aged 32) married my cousin Marjorie Olive Tottem (aged 25) at Bromley Registry Office, Bromley, Kent, England. In 1947 Marjorie sailed to Halifax - presumably to meet up with Jack. During the next 10 years they had 3 children in Canada.
I'm working on my family tree and am seeking anyone who can enlighten me on Jack's career - or advise me how best to search for myself (have no knowledge of Canadian military or civilian genealogy).
Thanks in advance.

How to Send an Inquiry Concerning Your Own or Another Individual's Records

    * Your request must be signed.
    * To identify a file, we require surname, full given name(s), date of birth, and service number or social insurance number.
    * If you do not know the date of birth, service number or S.I.N. (social insurance number), secondary information (e.g., the names of next of kin, postings, dates of service, place of enlistment) can assist in identifying the correct individual.
    * Consult the section below on Access Restrictions.
    * Please specify what document(s) you require. If you are doing family history research, we recommend that you request a "genealogy package," which will include copies of selected documents from the file that highlight/summarize the individual's service.
    * We do not accept email inquiries for these records. Inquiries must be sent by mail or fax.
    * Your request can be written as a letter or you can print off a blank copy of the Application for Military Service Information form available in [PDF 663 KB] or [RTF 44,516 KB] format, which should be filled in, signed and sent by mail or fax.

Recent geneaology is sometimes the toughest if you have no contact with the families.

These Google links may be helpful.  If it is the right Jack Labow, the Jewish War Veteran's of Canada might be helpful.




These are all the Canadian links I could find.  Also remember that Jack = John or Jacob.
