Rusty, the answer to message 10 is nearly the same as to message #2.
The only difference is that because he did not survive, a little information can be found on the CWGC site. Apart from what you...

The problem is that there is no such thing as 100% British. People have been arriving and producing children in the UK since the Stone Age.
For example, ask the companies what they mean by X% Scots....
There are commercial genealogy databases that include military information. One problem is that unless the name is very rare, it's often hard to work out which one you want.
I checked the medals...
It's not essential, just makes it easier to pick him out from the crowd.
Were his parents, by any chance, called Harold & Adelaide? If so, I have found him in the 1939 Register. If it is him, he...
The MOD has not yet released military records from WW2 and beyond for open publishing on the web. That's why you can't find them.
If you look HERE you will find a post explaining how family members...

Of course, if they did start in Scotland, they could have been non-conformists on one sort or another. Many registers are missing and BMD certificates didn’t start until 1855...

Scotlands People keep insisting that they have nobody of that name in 1841... Or 1851... I always look!
I was wondering whether Maria made him up until I saw that you have his death cert. ...

Welcome to the British Genealogy Forum.
A year (or even decade) would be useful - legalese tends to change with the time period (and country)!
According to the Register of Soldier's Effects, he died in PW camp Marche. That's where he was originally buried ("March German Cemetery"), and then moved to Hautrage after the War. His entry was...
And the family name does not match the head of household or the wife’s maiden name?
As a speculation, it sounds as though it COULD mean what we would call today a fostered child, maybe a local...
Can you give us the context, please? What sort of document (I assume a census?) timeframe and country would all help.
Welcome to the British Genealogy Forum Robin.
I'm sure that someone who can help will be along in a while.
In the mean time, why not check the catalogues of the big libraries near you? Online, I...
Wie was Wie say that they have Amsterdam City archives. It's always possible that the name of the nearest big place that strangers might have heard of was given, rather than a small place close by....
Paul, please don't start another thread about the same people - to prevent duplicate help, etc, we only allow one active thread per research family. This thread is now in our Jewish Genealogy Forum,...
Good thinking, Phillip. I've only really been looking at the UK marriage aspect.
Done! Over to you!

I assume that he was a serviceman? Army?
(The Japanese had many civilian prisoners as well).
It could also mean a marriage or the registration of the marriage at the British Embassy in Den Haag, but I don't know what criteria you had to meet to arrange that. I'm pretty sure that at least one...
She has another thread with a different guy who corresponded to the guy I had.
Welcome to the British Genealogy Forum. Be warned - Genealogy is addictive!
If you are new to all of this, there is a message HERE which explains some of the things you can do to help people...
That's a soldier in the photo! Therefore he was in the army. The longer number on the postcard should be his service number (which corresponds to the Suffolks #5), and the address "camp staff" says...

That flu outbreak was the last documented pandemic, before now.

Even the Moderators don’t have access to personal contact information, I’m afraid.
It's worth a try - it should be possible to tell the difference between army and navy even if badges, etc, are not clear enough.
Karen, you need his date of birth for the army databases when you apply for his service record, not for the commercial sites. You also need a (photo)copy of his death certificate.
As I said in...
Has the family contacts from that time in the New World? A member of a family in my OPS vanished from the area and was not found until someone in Canada emailed to say that she’d found a grave for...
