Genealogy Roundup, April 11

After 73 years, the remains of a Tuskegee airman lost over Europe may have been found – What a privilege to research this case. An identification hasn’t been made yet, but it’s looking likely. His widow just passed away last December. Hoping to welcome Tuskegee airman Capt. Lawrence E. Dickson home soon.

I should mention that his brother was also a Tuskegee airman. Remarkable family.

US Woman Sells Home to Find Welsh Roots – Good for her! 🙂

Wanted: Volunteers who like history … and can read cursive – Yup, there’s that handwriting issue again.

Soldier Missing From Vietnam War Accounted For (Kipina, M.) – Staff Sgt. Marshall F. Kipina who gave his life in Vietnam has been identified. RIP, and welcome home, Sir. Honored to have researched your family.

Historian who stole WWII dog tags from the National Archives is sentenced to year in prison – He got off easy given what he did. Glad to hear of 95% recovery. Hoping for 100%.
