    My name is Tracey and I'm trying to help my mum find her biological father. She learned at age 11 that her mother had met an American GI stationed in Great Barr Birmingham, UK circa 1944. She had a brief relationship with him became pregnant but had no further contact with him. My mum was born in April 1945 so that would have put him there at least in July of 1945. We believe the base to be the Pheasey Estate as that was very close to where her mother lived. All she knows is his name was William (Bill) and we have this photo of him in his uniform. She has recently submitted DNA on Ancestry.co.uk and that has revealed that she has several DNA links with 3rd cousins living in the southern states of America specifically Tennessee and Mississippi. I've hit a brick wall and don't know where to go from here so any information on how we could potentially try and find out would be so appreciated.

    Picture does not show any defining insignia. Most likely he was not assigend to a specific unit at the time, but was waiting transport to his duty location.

    Do you have names for his relatives (don't post them, please); maybe we can descretely contact them here in the States. Do you have any greater location info more definite than the "southrern states?" That is a large area.
