I am searching for any relatives of James Oliver Shand who was in Flin Flon, Manitoba in 1949. In the spring of that year he was instrumental in saving the life of one man and unsuccessfully the life of another, my uncle, in a boating accident. I only learned relatively recently that Shand and my uncle were nominated for, but never received-posthumously in my uncles case-an award from the Royal Canadian Humane Association for their efforts.
I think that the Shand family might be interested in knowing that certificate was out there waiting to be claimed.
Please feel free to post your questions or exchange information.
