Hello all, I am hoping someone here can help me find out more information about my late grandmother's biological father. I have found a birth record of my grandmother's, stating her surname as 'Ward'. She was born in January 1945. I believe my great grandmother did not marry Sgt Ward. Little knowledge was passed down to me, apart from his surname 'Ward' and a few photographs, and that he was an American soldier in WW2. From these photographs, I researched the insignia on his uniform and learnt he was a TEC4 Sgt (I think I have this correct). I have no idea what regiment etc he was in (forgive my lack of knowledge on this). I don't even know where in the U.S he lived, or when he enlisted. My great grandmother lived in Weymouth, Dorset most, if not all of her life, and I'm almost certain she wasn't elsewhere during this time. I'm at a loss as to when Sgt Ward would've arrived in Weymouth and where exactly he was stationed. This could've been on Portland or Weymouth. Obviously from dating back from when my grandmother was born, he would have been there from at least March 1944. I also have a photograph of my grandmother, dated 1955 and signed by my great-grandmother to 'Daddy'. This makes me believe he didn't lose his life in the war. I may be barking up the wrong tree here, but if anyone has any information to help my search I would be overjoyed. Or even point me in the right direction as to how to find out more about him. Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I hope I have made some sort of sense.
