Tracing relatives - help required
« on: Sunday 21 August 11 13:21 BST (UK) »
A television company would like to trace the descendents of anyone nursed by, or who knew or worked alongside, Sister Edith Appleton, a nurse working in various locations in France throughout the First World War. An index detailing names is below. If you recognise anybody, please get in touch and your details will be forwarded for a potential television project. Although referred to only by surname in the diary, it has been possible to fully identify most of those named below, and more names will be added soon. A full list of all those mentioned in the diary, though not necessarily identified/identifiable can be found here:

http://www.edithappleton.org.uk/index/names.asp

and another list with links to CWGC, and full contact details, can be found on my website here:

If you have not tried the Great War Forum, I suggest you do:
http://1914-1918.invisionzone.com/forums/index.php

There is a sub-forum headed 'women' where information has been exchanged on women's roles in WW1, and individuals traced.
It is easy to enrol and beware - it can be addictive.
