It¹s another one of those Joseph Regis/Richard things.
I have him as Alvard/Alvord Slack who often went by ³Albert².
Thanks. I¹d appreciate Wylie Slack¹s obit to see where he fits in; m/1 or
Check the nsarm Vitals website;
Ivan Robert Slack, birth 17 May 1909, Linden, N.S.
Ivan Robert Wylie Slack, m/1 16 Mar 1932, Baptist, Truro
He¹s also Alvora Slack
Annie Theodora Slack, birth 23 Jul 1910, Folly Lake, N.S.
He¹s Albert Slack but as the informant is Alvard?/Alvord?
