Hi

I have been tracing my family history, my maternal lineage is the Ellis family.

My grandfather was Wilfred Ellis, and he was one of 7 children, including Robert J Ellis.
My mum remembers being told as a child that Robert J had emigrated to America after being accused of being a deserter (he was a pacifist).
Records appear for U.S. Social Security applications for him, with matching birth parent names, but as I don't own the worldwide account I'm unable to access this record.

Can anyone shed some light? Thank you!

(I cant attach a link to record as it redirects me to sign up to worldwide)

Thank you! That's brilliant!
Are you able to find any spouse/marriage details for him in America?

There are many other Robert Ellis's born in 1925 (including 13th May), and I was slowly trying to see what records were going to appear.  If he has dropped his middle name it is a rather common name.

You could try a grave/cemetery search using that date of death as I have not yet matched him up to a naturalisation.

Have you tried IGI for free searches?

That clipping mentions a wife and a son, both alive in 2007.

I can see a possible marriage for that son with the correct parents' names, but we are getting a bit speculative, and we cannot mention living people on here.

Added:
Sorry, ignore that, that person died in 1997 so cannot be the son.
