Hi Lorraine
thanks for looking for me. Why is it always the ones you really want to find that are so elusive!!

I know it says George was born in Wales but he wasn't - perhaps they just followed his mother's place of birth. I have his birth as Lancs from the 1901 census. Shame I can't request George's service record either.

Thanks once again for your help. It is much appreciated

Christine
PS as a long shot, and if you have the time, would it be possible to see if there is a death record for Anna and George?

Hello Lorraine and thank you for your kind offer

Can you look on the USa military records ( probably WW1 I think)
for George Duce
born 1899 Southport, Lancs
He emigrated with his mother in 1904 and on the 1920 US census he is listed as a soldier in the US Army.

I guess at age 21 he could have been in WW1

I haven't been able to find him after 1920 but am listing details of the 1920 census for him below:

Name: George Duce
Home in 1920: Kingston Ward 1, Luzerne, Pennsylvania
Age: 21
Estimated birth year: abt 1899
Birthplace: England
Relation to Head of House: stepson)
[Head] David Hughes
Spouse's name: Anna
Father's Birth Place: England
Mother's Birth Place: Wales

another one that just disappears it s seems so frustrating !

have tried all combinations of spelling but can find in usa or canada nor a death for him in uk

did either of his sons marry it may be worth getting their marriage certs as it usually says deceased if the parent has died. but strange there doesnt seem to be a death registered for him in uk wonder if he went to scotland or ireland unfortantly i dont have records for those may be worth asking for a look up in scotland or ireland though just in case

Pannonia is an ancient province of the Roman Empire bounded north and east by the Danube, coterminous westward with Noricum and upper Italy, and southward with Dalmatia and upper Moesia. Pannonia was located over the territory of the present-day western half of Hungary with parts in Austria, Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia, Slovakia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Hi Lorraine,

Thanks for your previous information on the Scopez'. Further to D. Scopez arriving N.Y 16 October, 1921 onboard the Pannonia, can you tell where he departed from, as well as, you stated that there was another Scopez on the same trip, do you have a name for that person?

Thank you again
