RE: west hartlepool oliver ww2

Hello to Grendav2001,

 

you may recall that I contacted you a few years back about the King family at the Headland on the Ancestry Website and we emailed each other about my Oliver Grandparents of Bower Street Hartlepool.  It was around this time and from your help that I discovered the OliverFamilyHistory website and since then Shane and I have had many discussions and research material gathered for the website.  You might remember a Lady who approached you in your hunting ground as Researcher at Hartlepool Library and you showed me where the information was about H49 and Uncle George and my father Fred who won the MM.

 

Thank you for your help and see that you are still out there gathering information.  As you will see below I have put quite a lot of information on the website and hope you find it interesting.

 

Regards

 

Christine Frahm.
