Would there be anyone willing to assist in providing any further information on John McKeown above, born 1895 in Cookstown, Co Tyrone.  He was a prisoner of war WW2 in Stalag 4D Torgau Elbe.

This is the only information I have, having tried Ancestry and found nothing :-(

Antrim / Griffith's valuation maps
« on: Tuesday 06 November 12 16:41 GMT (UK)  »
Can someone please help, or at least put my mind at rest.  I have been agonizing over these maps for several hours now.  I used to be able to print these maps out.  I slightly overlaid the newer map over the old map and I then marked the houses/lands were my ancestors lived.  Infact I made an large map/poster of the Ballycollin/kilcorig/ ballycarrickmaddy area and have it up on the wall.  I find it brilliant for finding their houses and going to visit the area.

But alas I cannot seem to be able to do it anymore  ???

Could anyone shed some light on this for me pretty please  :)
