This is an account of my efforts to shed light on some of my family’s past. It all started when I found a little card in my late mother’s house announcing the death of my grandfather in The Great War. From the date I was able to find out what happened to him. I thought his story should be told, and not only his, but many other characters who emerged as I dug into the records of the past.
