What happened to your other post(s) about this?

Have you made any attempt to use GR's 'search all trees' facility?

I would have thought that if you're 'researching'.........you'd do the research, and try to initiate contact with possible relatives.

Or isn't that how you operate?

Anthony, a group of us have just finished researching the names on a certain war memorial.

If you take the Flint names separately, and check CWGC, Ancestry, freebmd etc., as we did, you will soon see if it is possible to contact family. Some lines will, of course, have died out. Cx
