So who was the father?
I am seeking assistance on how to find the father of a child born October 1945 in Norwich, Norfolk England when the mother, now deceased, did not tell officially who he was.Little needle - BIG hay stack.
There are a few clues, a possible name, family origins (East Europe), served with the US forces in the area (2nd Airborne is the best bet).I am only at the beginning of the search and have a list of possibles from the 1930 census (75 hits) and the enlistments up to 1945 for the Army (79 hits).However I am unclear whether this enlistment list included the Air Force.I know the airfields/bases in the area.The problem is to put it all together and 75+ is not a large number.
Is there a dedicated site/organisation for this sort of problem?
Is the only route to go to the individual service records, where available, to find if the individual was in the area at the time?
Any assistance would be appreciated.
