    Welcome to the forum, JJ. I don't know of such a site, but perhaps one of our other esteemed members will be able to help you out. Good luck on your search.

    It is going to be nearly impossible without knowing the name of the child. Do you have that information?

    Thanks for the welcome guys, It's nice to be on a friendly forum:)

    I knew it would be near inpossible....I was hoping there would be a site were illigitimate war children could ask about lost fathers.... all we know about her is her first name

    Her mother knew the soldiers address, she wrote just after the war and sent a picture of the child, but the letter is long gone, also she would be in her 60s now, and maybe has no idea about her father.


    My friend has a photo of him in uniform, if I put it on here to identify his regiment, is it possable to find out if he served in Austria?, as he always spoke of serving in Italy


    thanks

    You might want to try the European newspapers, give them a picture and all the info, maybe they'll help. Good luck!
