Europe / Hanz Spregiel, 20 years old - Battle of Cassino in Italy in 1944
« on: Saturday 26 April 14 09:32 BST (UK)  »

A WWII veteran is attempting to reunite a dead German soldier's identification notebook with his rightful family members after taking it from a battlefield in Italy 70 years ago.

(This was on our news tonight, anyone researching the surname Spregiel in Germany? The photograph is excellent by the way. Maybe someone could share this to a Germany forum?)

Cornwall / Thomas Hayne Launceston 1840's
« on: Wednesday 04 July 12 10:31 BST (UK)  »
Thomas Hayne silk-mercer of Southampton formerly of Launceston married to Miss Brendan of Launceston October 22 1841 at Stoke Church (Stoke Dameral)

How would I find a record of Thomas living in Launceston in 1835-1841, he is not in the 1841 census in Cornwall or Hampshire or to my knowlege (living with Margaret) or the 1851 Southampton census (he was dead)?

Thomas Hayne died March 1849 in Southampton and we think Margaret Brendan is his wifes name.

 ??? Why was he in Launceston? Was he born there? The census's don't tell me!

Fife / Givens & Normand of Dysart
« on: Friday 09 December 05 01:58 GMT (UK)  »
Hello, is anyone researching these families?

They are buried in St Serfs Cemetary Dysart.

I am a decendant of Peter Givens (Shipwright) and Martha Normand.

Does anyone now who the parents of Martha Normand were? Or Peter Givens?

Were the Normands also a shipping family?
