Sandra you very kindly found information for me on my mother's aunt and her family who emigrated to Illinois. I wonder if you could help me further or tell me where I might find the information - I should like to know if it possible to obtain the service record of George Henry Schreder who was in the US Marine Corps in WW11, joining in 1942. Or some information on his time in the war. also to know was he a career marine or just for the war ? Was he married and if so, did he have children ? Emily and Otto had two other children - Margarette b: 1904 and Lilian C.b: 1911. Is it possible to find out if they married ? I understand the 1940 USA census is now available - how do I access that please ? Or is it accessible for people in England ?
The 1940 USA census should show the children as adults and where they lived.
Sorry if it is too many questions ! But I am always impressed how much information people on Roots.web seem to have at their fingertips !
