A Surname Inquiry



 February 21, 2024

I am searching for information on George Miller of Muskoka/Parry Sound. He was married to Olive (Olise) and they had two or three children, one born around 1899 named Roy (my grandfather).
I have no other information on this side of my family as my grandfather Roy died in 1945 and my grandmother doesn't remember much about his family.
