My grandfather was Frank Gerrard, he lived in Manhattan Beach, CA from the early 1920's until he died in 1975. He was originally from Staffordshire, England. His family moved from England to Winnipeg, Canada before WWI and he and his brother George and their father Edward, joined the Canadian Expeditionary Forces and were shipped back to England in 1914.
After the war ended they came back to Winnipeg and in 1920 Frank moved his wife and two children to California.
There were eight children in the Gerrard family, George Henry, Frank, Edward(Ted),Elsie,Amy,Mary(Dolly), Rebecca and Fred.
Fred Gerrard was born in 1905 and lived in San Diego, CA, he married and I believe his wife's name was Lita and that they had two sons, but I don't know their names. Fred divorced and remarried, his second wife's name was Nola.
Fred Gerrard died in January 1966 and I have no idea how to contact his sons, or any of his family that might still be in that area.
I know that some of the family of George Gerrard are in the San Diego area, but I don't think they know the whereabouts of Freds family.
If anyone has information that might help me to contact these folks, I would appreciate hearing from them.
