    Default J. Duck or A.C. Duck WWII Nijmegen March 1945

    I'm looking for James Duck (born 1919 Bristol) or Ambrose Charles Duck (born 1921 Bristol).
    Is there anyone who knows if one of them was in Nijmegen (Netherlands) in March 1945 during WWII?
    Do you perhaps know family or descendants of this family Duck in the UK?

    Thanks.

    Find My Past have a death of a Charles Ambrose Duck in Bromley, Kent in 1998, year of birth 1921. I can't find a birth of a Charles Ambrose, so it may be worth checking out this death.

    FMP has an Ambrose G DUCK b. 1921 Bristol Q1 6A 155 mother's maiden name AMES.

    I think this is a mistranscription and the initial should be C not G.

    Also
    James DUCK b. 1919 Bristol Q1 6A 87 mother's maiden name AMES.

    Searching for a DUCK/AMES marriage produces one result:

    George DUCK m. Elizabeth AMES 1915 Weymouth Q2 5A 914

    Thank you. Then I am on the right track. Let's hope that I can find someone who knows if one of them was in Nijmegen during WWII in March 1945.

    These may well be siblings to Ambrose and James:

    Georgina C E DUCK b. 1916 Weymouth Q2 5A 551
    Geraldine T DUCK b. 1919 Bristol Q4 6A 187
    Gordon G DUCK b. 1928 Bristol Q4 6A 148 all with mother's maiden name AMES

    On the 1939 Register, Elizabeth, a widow, is living in Bristol with Georgina, Gordon G and three others whose entries are redacted.

    This may be George's death:
    George DUCK d. 1932 Bristol aged 44. Q1 6A 125

    James and Ambrose are proving to be elusive!

    There is evidence that Georgina and Geraldine both married U.S. Servicemen and each had at least one child in this country before emigrating to USA.

    As those children may still be alive, I am unable to post the details, as the forum rules prevent it.

    However, any living descendants might have the information you are looking for!
