Home > Join Debbie Beavis' War Bride Listserv
Would you like to exchange information, look for old friends, do historical or genealogical research or just talk about the War Brides to others who share your interest?
| Debbie Beavis runs the War Brides Listserv.
Debbie Beavis of the UK has developed a mailing list for warbrides, their families, or anyone who has a particular interest in the lives and stories of all those women who left their homelands to join their new husband overseas.
When you join the email list, you will receive copies of e-mails from people who are also on the list and may have a question they can't seem to find the answer from anywhere else.
Here is an example:
During 1940-1945 war we were evacuated from Guernsey, Channel Islands to Bradford, Yorkshire, England. There we were taken in by a family who were kind to us. She was a May Hodgson. I am not sure of the last name now, I want to say Hodginson or Hodgens. Anyway, she had two daughters Elsie and Hilda. Elsie married a canadian RAF guy and now lives in Kingston, Ontario.
I am trying to find Elsie as I cannot locate her sister in Bradford, Yorkshire. I believed her married name was Bailey but cannot find her, so thought I would look for Elsie. I have tried to locate an RAF Service Club in Kingston, but could not find one.
Perhaps you can help.
