Seeking information about the family of Johnston Garner Boyd, born in Winnipeg July 24, 1904. He was the son of Nathaniel Boyd and Martha Johnston. The family is in Winnipeg in the 1911 census. Would love to find some descendants! Also, there are many Nathaniel Boyds in our family tree and we have yet to pinpoint this one!
Thanks to anyone with information.
