William James Rice
« on: Thursday 08 November 18 13:13 GMT (UK) »
Born in about 1911 in Liverpool, England. Went to the States in the 1950's. I found this on ancestry (UK), but I don't have Worldwide version:

U.S. Public Records Index, 1950-1993, Volume 1
William Rice

Any help, please?

Thanks,

Colin

Is that the William James Rice with a birth date of 11 December 1910 - parents Charles and Amy  ???

UK Death Index - William James Rice - 11 December 1910  - aged   74 years
Registration Date Jun 1985 -  Registration district Liverpool Merseyside.
Volume 36 - Page 517

Also shows in Liverpool in 1939

The hint for US Public Records Index for a William Rice with that birth date - 11 December 1910 is dated 1992. Might that be a coincidence  ???

Thanks very much, Sandra. That's the one. I was wondering what the hint was?
