    Default research on relatives unit

    I've been doing some research on my grandfather's cousin and got some information from Volksbund Deutsche Kriegsgräberfürsorge e.V. - Arbeit für den Frieden
    Could someone tell me about his unit?
    2./I.R. 122
    Erkennungsmarke -49-Stb.I./I.R.122
    He was killed 27/7/41 near Kucies. Where is that? A basic Google search did not yield much. I think it is in Moldolva.

    A small bit of info on IR 122 can be found here:

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks for the quick reply Ade. Would there be any way to find out more about the action in which he was killed or what the unit might have been doing on their part of the front?

    You would need to see if there was ever a proper detailed Divisional history published. Again some info here:

    Thanks again Ade! Would one find a divisional history through the Bundesarchiv?
