World War Two / Front Stalag 142 Besancon France - Zygmunt Pawlowski
« on: Wednesday 08 December 21 15:00 GMT (UK)  »
I hope this is the correct place to post this query

Zygmunt was in recorded on the prisoner list of Besançon, Doubs, Bourgogne-Franche-Comté, France with a DoB of May 25 1907 as born in Cracovie/Krakow and shown as Zygmut Pavolowski.  This list is the Liste officielle No 27 de prisonniers français a Paris le 7 octobre 1940 for the Camp - Frontstalag 142.  The other details are Grade cap.-ch. & Unit C.A. 385/44 which means nothing to me. If anyone can help I'd appreciate it.

Why would he have been there if born in Poland?
What does Grade cap.-ch. mean?
Also Unit C.A. 385/44?

The date of birth recorded matches his as given on other documents.  I do know that this camp was used for British Citizens and US Citizens after Dec 1941.

Zygmunt married three times. I am only aware of his first marriage as he is described as a widower on the marriage certificate of his second marriage in 1950. His third marriage was to my OH's aunt in 1974. Both the 1950 and the 1974 marriages were in London.

In 1950 he was described as am Embassy Chauffeur and in 1974 as a motor mechanic; at both times his father is shown as Wladyslaw Pawlowski either a Distillery or Brewery Company Director.

Any and all help and direction gratefully accepted - thank you

Ireland / Sheila Elliott Athlete Sprinter
« on: Sunday 09 August 20 13:27 BST (UK)  »
I am hoping to locate her birth record and some further details

Sheila Elliott won her first athletics title in 1928 and a foremost Northern Ireland sprinter.
Her Uncle was William Millar also a champion athlete.
She married fellow athlete Edward Boyce circa 1941.

A 1937 newspaper article stated she was 44 years old => bc 1893 however this is refuted by someone who claims she was alive and presenting a trophy in 1992. However she may have lived into her 90s in very good health!

Any help locating her birth/family would be appreciated - thank you

London and Middlesex / Trying to locate missing aunt
« on: Saturday 11 April 20 15:53 BST (UK)  »
Trying a different option now

When my OH's aunt married on Jun 08 1974 in Brent Registry Office
the witnesses were P Ruszczynski and L Ruszczynska

Her husband Zygmunt Pawlowski died on Jan 23 1977 in Central Middlesex Hospital, Park Royal, Brent
She was named as the informant on the death certificate and cannot be located since

She was born in Dublin Ireland on Jun 30 1923 so there is a small chance she is still alive
She married and had six children in Ireland and went to England in the early 1960s

I have been ten years searching at this stage and still hope for a break through LINK
Now hoping someone might recognise the names of the witnesses and have more information

Thank you in advance

Ireland / Irish School Roll Books decoding!
« on: Tuesday 23 July 19 18:09 BST (UK)  »
I was fortunate enough to be given access to the old school rolls of some relatives
Those from the 1930s are scored out of 10 but by the 1970s they used codes
G= good
VG= very good
F= fail

we are assuming S= satisfactory

There is also a C and a W given for some children
These are listed in the columns against subjects taken

I would appreciate if anyone can shed some light on what they may have meant
Thank you in advance

Ireland / Mary Coyne nee Griffin: Last living person on the 1911 Irish census?
« on: Wednesday 03 July 19 19:05 BST (UK)  »
Mary died this week aged 108 in my original home town! Death Notice
She was born Mary Griffin on March 31 1911 Birth record #395
to Owen/Eugene Griffin and Bridget Crinigan in Cloonlative, Castlerea
She married Roger Coyne on July 21 1942 in Castlerea, Co. Roscommon Marriage record

She was recorded on the 1911 census with her grand-parents, parents and two siblings, as 2 days old LINK

When she died this week it was thought she was the oldest person in the Republic of Ireland
Unless there is some one living elsewhere, or misquoted their age; it is thought now there is no one else recorded on the 1911 census still living.

Someone here could prove me wrong!!
