Bushfields in Canada


The following is excerpted from the on-line database of the National Archives of Canada. Click Canadian Genealogy Research to do your own search. This site also includes a searchable, on-line Index to the 1871 Census of Ontario, which lists several Bushfields.

Below is a list of 12 BUSHFIELDs from a database of over 600,000 Canadians enlisted in the Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEF) during the First World War. The CEF database is an index to those personnel files, which are held by the National Archives. In addition, through the support of Industry Canada and the SchoolNet Digital Collections Program, over 50,000 pages of Attestation papers have been scanned and made accessible through the referenced database.
