I am trying to track down my US grandad / his family but keep hitting brick walls without his date of birth. I am English but my mum was born in Germany in 1949 to a German National mum and a US Marine.
From the following information, do you think it is possible to track the US marine and if so what route would you recommend?
Searching German or US records?
From - Mississippi USA (possibly Tupelo) Stationed in - Bremerhaven, Germany 1948 Year of birth - probably between 1923 and 1930 Photo - shows him as (possibly) a staff sergeant, and posed with a Jeep. Registration C-16498 with perhaps a motor pool connection Family - 9 siblings.
His family wrote to say that he was MIA when my gran was pregnant with my mum but we are unsure if that was the case.
