Note on Husband: Frances MARION - shared note

This is pure suposition based on conversations with Maureen Elizabeth Yelland.

The theroy is to find a US Navel vessel that was in the UK or better still in Liverpool that went down during after March 1944. (Lavinia was born 12 Dec 1944). The only clue I have at the moment is that Francis was some sort of Medic.

Need the US records, see following response from National Genealogical Society Member Services

 

Dear Mr. Arthur:

 

Thank you for your inquiry. There are a number of sites that you may find useful in your search.The first place I would start is the National Archives and Records Administration, (NARA), http://www.archives.gov/index.html. Linked to from the NARA website is http://www.history.navy.mil/index.html. From what I read here it appears there is microfilm of Naval casualties from WWII.

 

You may also want to look at, www.cyndislist.com or www.rootsweb.com. Both these sites offer a vast amount of information on available resources. You may be able to find help at this site http://www.history.navy.mil/faqs/faq82-1.htm.

 

Good luck with your search.

 

Sincerely,

Illyce Mac Donald
