search for relatives of Sgt Robert Heugh
« on: Sunday 05 February 12 11:01 GMT (UK) »
Hi all, hope this will work: I represent a Dutch heritage foundation (WO2GO) who are trying to retell the story of allied airmen who did on our island during WWII.  We remember them by making information boards on the crash en writing a few books. We already had familiy and relatives coming to visdit us from USA, Canada and the UK to officially unveil these boards.

On October 6th 1944 two Halifax bombers had a mid-air collision. 14 men died. One of them was Sergeant Robert Heugh.
Son of Archibald and Mary Kerr Heugh, of Dunbar, East Lothian. They never found his body. Sgt Heugh is commemorated on Panel 231 of the Runnymede Memorial.

Is there anybody who is related to Sgt Heugh? Please contact me?

Is there anyone who can help me using this forum to get any data on Robert Heugh's family?

Hello Diddi,

Great! Thanks for this. Can I also find present day family via the link for Scottish people?
I could try to phone several Heugh's in East-Lothian though using the white pages in the search for telephone numbers  I need to subscribe to 192.com...?

records on SP go up to 2009 for bmd's, wils 1901.

you might be able to go further forward using the burial records which may give a relative reporting the death etc.

you could look into Robert having any siblings.

please note do not put details on Rootschat of people who may be living.
