    through another thread Dave Dux Deluxe threw in this link, it is amazing and I am now even more humbled at how little I know

    I will be doing more research when I get home, and donating to the cost they have put into providing the data

    Try the Public Records Office for research.

    WGC website is easy to use to track down war dead.
    Not only grave locations, but also gives Service Numbers, which opens doors to medal cards, conduct sheets, etc.
