Superb and well done!!!!!

There is a memorial in a small church in Cumbria - Lamplugh I think, with a memorial to german soldiers killed in a crash on the fells....I think I might go and take a look - it seems to mean so much to others.

I don't know if anyone has seen this or not, but it seems that this article has made it onto the "Wikipedia" site.

Hi, all...
That's a good little article that some more family may also come across!
The memorial has been there since the war but mentioning the hikers and momentos in that last paragraph, although accurate...should maybe have been after the paragraph about the memorial itself....as it sounds a bit  as though the site has only just been honoured lately...  ( just a suggestion for the submitter if they read this  :D )
 Cyber hugs to all...J.J.

perhaps you should correct the article-and give a plug to rootschat whilst you're at it

Hi all

I've not logged in for a while but I've still been on the lookout for further information.  Unfortunately there are no further updates at the moment on finding the Groulx family or any information on Gaston Caron.   

I'm still amazed with the number of hits this page has had and its good to give it a nudge to the front page now and again, new members might come across it and know something.

Anges Weild - Annan - married William Blenkinsop - Annan

I've no idea how one can update a Wiki article, but know it can be done ... can someone reading this with the knowhow, do it, and give RootsChat a little credit for this ? 

I'm amazed at the number of 'reads' this one has had !
