ICRC Records - Help please

Recommended Posts

BillyH

We used to have a specific POW section on the Forum, but it seems to have gone with the upgrade? - so I am posting my query here.

Using this search page :  http://grandeguerre.icrc.org/en/File/Search   

I am not having any luck finding Scottish type Mc??? names, but specifically McDonald. (Nothing appears for MacDonald either.)

I think I must be doing something stupid, but would welcome some help please.

 

BillyH.

Hi BillyH,

 

The surname of McDonald appears by regiment under the 'Mac D' sections.

 

Regards

Chris

 

Edit:

 

From this link click on the white rectangle on the left hand side. Select "MAC, C (Royal) Air Force - MAC, I Middlesex Infantry Reg". Scroll down the list until you come to the 'MAC, D' for the regiment you want, and the McDonald's should be in with them

Some MacP and  McP are under MacD

Some MacO, McO, MacR and McR are under MacP (no Regiment)

The ICRC records are unique. You need great patience and an open mind to use them.

 

A McPherson might appear as a MacLerson.

 

If you are looking for any equipment look under:

 

MacHinery

 

But much thanks to the ICRC for this invaluable database!!
