Milan, Italy ... flying great uncle
« on: Sunday 18 June 17 14:08 BST (UK) »
Trying to trace my great uncle Friedrich Heinz Pollak, engineer and aviator. Born Vienna 1920s .. lived in Milan. Photos show him at flying club in Milan area, probably 1970s. Can anyone identify the airfield ... or Friedrich? Is he still alive?

A man with that name is freely available on Google. RootsChat is not supposed to be used for live people but FHP seems to have his information available for everyone to see. First article on the page .......Quality Technology Handbook - Page 411 - Google Books Result

Thanks Barry. The handbook ws published 1984 .. I have not been able to find anything more recent. I have previously written to the address listed but received no reply. Most likely he is no longer living though have not found any death record.

A search in Google with "Henriette Toper" gives this :
So Friedrich Heintz , born 1927 could still be alive
