Hi! I already read the forum about the sudden burst of research projects, and I can confirm that we're basically all from the same high school. We were actually referred here to ask for help finding information, as we found out that some people on here are good at finding information. Our project is to make a biography on soldiers who attended our high school, and our teacher is planning to make the biographies into a book so people can learn more about WW2 soldiers from Edmonton. Anyway, needless to say I am one of those high school students. I would like to find out more about my soldier so he isn't misrepresented, or there isn't crucial details I miss out on because of my lack of knowledge. I don't really know much about WW2 or anything to do with war, really. I had received a folder full of papers and documents for my soldier, whose name is Donald McDonald, but a lot of it doesn't make sense to me, and I don't have a clue how to look anything up that would help me understand. Most of the documents I have are found on ancestry.ca (sorry for the huge link incoming) http://interactive.ancestry.ca/9145/44485_83024005549_0595-00356?pid=15598&backurl=http%3a%2f%2fsearch.ancestry.ca%2f%2fcgi-bin%2fsse.dll%3fgss%3dangs-c%26new%3d1%26rank%3d1%26msT%3d1%26gsfn%3dDonald%2bFrancis%26gsfn_x%3d0%26gsln%3dMcDonald%26gsln_x%3d0%26msbdd%3d2%26msbdm%3d7%26msbdy%3d1914%26msddd%3d14%26msddm%3d5%26msddy%3d1943%26cpxt%3d1%26cp%3d3%26MSAV%3d0%26uidh%3d000%26pcat%3d39%26h%3d15598%26recoff%3d5%2b6%2b7%2b33%26db%3dCANWWIIkia%26indiv%3d1%26ml_rpos%3d1%26nreg%3d1&treeid=&personid=&hintid=&usePUB=true The things that I do know are that he was in the Air Force, and that he was born to George Edward McDonald and Julia O'Sullivan. He had no siblings (or any he spoke to, none were written on the forms i found). He was single when he enlisted, and he enlisted in 1941. I found some personal details of him as well in the papers. He was (buried?) in the Rheinberg War Cemetary in Germany. I have also found a picture of him on Ancestry.ca. Apparently he went MIA while flying somewhere, although I don't know many details. Any help is greatly appreciated, even a nudge in the right direction. Thank you! -Hannah EDIT: Right now I am looking around the bac-lac website, (Thanks to whoever posted a link in the other thread!) I'll update this thread with new info in case anyone is also interested EDIT 2: Oh wow I forgot to post his military number thing, it's R93881 EDIT 3: http://search.ancestry.ca/cgi-bin/sse.dll?db=CanCen1921&indiv=try&h=6238587 i found this about him, too.
