« on: Monday 01 June 20 06:29 BST (UK) »
Grateful if someone is able to assist with further information ie marriage/death for Alan McAlister.
He was born on 14 April 1897 in Whakatane, New Zealand to John McAlister and Eliza Ann Simpkins.  A birth registration for an Alan McAlister was made in NZ in 1984/109829.
He sailed from NZ to the US in 1915.
In c 1918 he joined the US Flying Corps in Dallas Texas.
He was Naturalised in the US on 2 July 1918 Certificate No 928477.
On Ancestry (unable to access due to subscription) there is a death in 1995 in Harrison, Texas - is this his death?
Thanks
TPB
