Thanks very much Bill, very helpful!
My great uncle was in WWI (I have registration cards for him and his
brother, got them off of Ancestry.com) - his son told me that they kept
my uncle an extra year after the war ended because he was quite a
linguist and knew many German dialects, so they used him to translate
for some of the injured and to write chronicles. I wish I had known
him, he sounds like a really interesting person.
One thing I have found while doing my search is a huge amount of regret
that I didn't know my relatives. My g-grandfather and g-grandmother
were fascinating people! They owned ten saloons in Brooklyn, my
g-grandmother did all the cooking for them, and her husband went to
Africa for adventures, and left her to run the saloons. He did end up
coming back - would love to know what her reaction was! LOL
I also found out yesterday that they were cousins. Interesting stuff.
