Europe / Re: Tylman family - Augustow Poland (How to start?)

This is Cyndi's list guide to Polish records.

https://www.cyndislist.com/poland/

I have no experience researching anywhere other than in the UK (my lot were very boring) but I am sure there will be someone here who can help.

familysearch.org which says they have 124 learning courses to help you do your family history research in Poland

World War One / Re: Army numbers

I don't think you need the death certificate if he died in service?

I applied several years ago in similar circumstances; no death cert was required.

Thanks for pointing that out.  :) I overlooked the reference to his death in service. Duh.

He died still in service c 1937 as "RSM Arthur John KEANE" number unknown

Because he served after 1920 his service records will still be with the MoD. Your nephew can apply for them but at the moment there is a wait of at least 18 months. Hopefully this will get shorter as work practices return to "normal."

This is where you can download the application forms. Your nephew will need to pay 30 pounds, provide Arthur John Keane's date of birth and a copy of his death certificate.

You will not need his service number to apply for the records.

United States of America / Re: Boxer Jim Daubney - Emigrates to USA help request

ancestry has the image for WW1 draft registration card.

I don't have a sub to Findmy past but there is a transcript  in their British & Irish Roots Collection for a Jas Daubney age 30 1907 arrival at Halifax, departed Liverpool.

His U.S., World War I Draft Registration Cards gives his occupation as a carpenter for the Butler brothers and his birthday as the 14 March 1875 not the 15th.
The information I have given is for the James Daubney who married Florence but nothing that indicates he was a professional boxer as yet.
Uuum his birth reg says June 1/4 1876 so a late registration or just not sure when he was born?

His and Florence marriage 15 June 1910 -original image - is on ancestry. James is down as a cabinet maker, age 33, parents David and Anna nee Green. Florence's father, Malcolm McKercher was born in Scotland and her mother Martha nee Weatherby, in New York.
The 1920 US census says he is a Superintendent of Rescue work and emigrated in 1905 which may help in finding a record of when he arrived.
