Chris_Baker Posted 15 November , 2002 Share Posted 15 November , 2002 Many, many people are trying to find out what happened to Grandad in the Great War. There is no problem whatever with anyone posting a message on here asking if anyone has any information about an individual. Sometimes the names do turn up in lists - or maybe someone has researched someone else in the same unit. But if all you know is his name, your chances of getting any real help on here are rather limited. First thing to do if Grandad was in the British forces is go to The Long, Long Trail website and read through what you need to do to get the most basic info. You will see that most of the important records are located at the Public Record Office in Kew. If you could not get to Kew yourself, you could use one of the professional researchers to do this first work for you. Some appear on the links page.
