I have spent the last few weeks working on my second great grandfather’s family and pulling a bit more information together. In particular, I found his son (Alexander) was listed on the Commonwealth War Graves website. Apparently he died in a POW camp and his grave is in Germany. Will have to drive past there on my next German holiday!
A trip to The National Archives in Kew was my birthday present to myself. Here, I tracked down the dates that the Raepers all emigrated out to Australia.
