Fold 3 adds Canada, Certificates of Military Instruction

From 1867 to 1932 candidates for militia commissions in the Canadian militia were required to attend one of the Schools of Military Instruction and receive a certificate.

Information on the certificates typically includes the man’s name, rank, and residence; the certificate type and date; and the name and location of the school.

You may also find information on how well the candidate performed, for example, Capt Charles F. Winter of the Governor General's Foot Guards obtained these marks during a course in Equitation (horsemanship).

The database is on Fold 3, an Ancestry database separate from Ancestry.com.
