  2. Hi I am looking for any information on my Great Grandfather . His name was George Hartford and he was the Harbourmaster of Dublin sometime in the late 1800s .My Grandfather George Hartford came to Canada in 1903 and settled in Sask. They were a fairly wealthy family with large house ,iron gates and family emblems, would be great to find out more about them.
