    Thank you all so very much!!
    You have all been so helpful.

    We believe he may have been killed during the second world war, however, family history is a bit fuzzy in that area.

    I have just gone to the Deutsche Dienststelle, and entered all of my information. It says the wait time can be up to 12 months. Has any one else found that to be the case?

    Thanks again. I feel very welcome here.

    Leah: I'm sure you will hear something from the Deutsche Dienststelle within a fairly short time. The 12 months wait disclaimer is just that--a disclaimer. I have used them several times and have always gotten an answer within a few weeks. Good luck. Dwight

    If you know his full name, and if it is unique enough, you may have some luck here: Gräbersuche Online

    The link I have provided you with is a German war graves registry. If he was killed, then there is a chance you could find some very good info there.
