World War Two / Arthur Lloyd Brace WW2/Battle of Arnhem
« on: Thursday 29 July 21 13:02 BST (UK)  »

I'm trying to find out more on my biological grandfather & if he fought at the Battle of Arnhem.  His niece (my first cousin once removed) said he had but am struggling to see anything mentioned in his war records though quite a few bits I'm struggling to read due to the handwriting.  Would this be something that would have been mentioned in his records?  Are there any ways of finding out if he fought at the Battle of Arnhem?


London and Middlesex / Arthur Lloyd Brace
« on: Wednesday 28 July 21 18:36 BST (UK)  »
Hi there,

Trying to find a couple of things on my biological grandfather.  Am trying to find if he fought at a particular battle during WW2 - Battle of Arnhem - it's not clear from his War records if he did (struggling to read good portions of it) but a newly found 1st cousin once removed (my grandfather's niece) said he was there. 

Once my biological grandmother died in 1969 in London, he seems to have disappeared until I came across his death certificate (died in 1988 in London).  Are there any good ways of trying to track him down for that time period?


Europe / Sweden - Lorich family name
« on: Tuesday 21 January 20 19:54 GMT (UK)  »
Am trying to find out why my 6x great grandfather would have adopted his brother-in-law's family name which is Lorich.

My 6x great grandfather was Frederick Otto Hassal (14 Aug 1752 - 16 Oct 1824) & his brother-in-law was Nils Lorich (22 Jul 1742 - 26 Jun 1823).

The source I saw saying that Frederick adopted the Lorich name is this (but can't work out why):

See tab 3a & tab 10.

Any help with this would be much appreciated.

Am just trying to find info on my 4x great grandfather.  He's Carl Georg Stromberg & I have him born on 24th January 1804 in Umea.  He married Maria Lorichs & they had 6 children - Eva, Carl, Hedvig, Ottilia, Axel & Jenny Maria.

Am hoping to find out what he did & when/where he died.  Any help would be much appreciated.

Lanarkshire / Joseph Malcolm
« on: Friday 08 November 19 15:42 GMT (UK)  »

I'm trying to find more on what would my biological great-grandfather, Joseph Malcolm.

I know fore sure that my great-grandmother would be Jessie Wilson (23/12/1881 - 27/11/1956).  I believe James was born in Glasgow in 1881 but not sure of exact date or when he died.  I also believe he worked in the railway industry.  Anything on his parents would also be great though unfortunately, I've not been able to find anything on his parents.


United States of America / Lill Brewing / Coal Companies in Chicago
« on: Tuesday 05 November 19 19:49 GMT (UK)  »
Hi there,

I'm trying to find further info on two companies my distant relatives held in Chicago.

I'm trying to find info on Lill & Diversey Brewing Company which was run by my 5 times great uncle but unfortunately burnt down in 1871 in the great fire of Chicago.  I've seem some basic details through Google.

The other is the Lill Coal & Oil company which was certainly run by my 3 times great grandfather.  Unfortunately finding it harder on Google to find anything.

I don't live in Chicago (or the States) hence trying here for help.  Anything would be much appreciated.


Other Countries / Eva Stromberg Siblings / Parents - Sweden
« on: Sunday 29 September 19 22:41 BST (UK)  »

Trying to find some info on my Swedish side of the family & Eva Adamina Charlotta Georgina Stromberg.  She's my 3x great grandmother.  I believe she was born 26 Oct 1832 in Sandhem & died 13 Oct 1928 in Vastra Frolunda.

I believe there are some siblings but currently unaware of their details.  Same with her parents - only info I have are that her father was Carl Georg Stromberg (born in 1804 at some point) & Hevrika Maria Lorichs (2 April 1812 - 1857).


United States of America / Henry Austin Miller
« on: Sunday 08 September 19 14:51 BST (UK)  »

I'm trying to confirm details of my 4x great-grandfathers & his parents.  My 4x great-grandfather is Henry Austin Miller (born 1st May 1807 & died 11th September 1882).   I've got him as being born in Tennessee but not 100% sure that is correct.  He seemed to have spent time in Iowa.

On his parents, I think I have taken a wrong turn somewhere & have come up with the wrong people for his parents.  Any help would be much appreciated.
