Subject: WW2: Killed in "Pacific" - Buried in Lowell - Certificate?
Date: Fri, 18 Jun 2004 07:12:28 -0400
Someone on the Ireland List has written to me this week and asked me a
question which was on a subject I have never thought about. And, I don't
think I've seen it discussed on the Lists:
If a person was a soldier during World War II and was "killed in action"
"in the Pacific theater," and his or her body was brought back to MA to be
buried, ... where would his or her death certificate have been filed?
The man who wrote to me is helping a friend in his attempt to find the
burial location of his nephew, Axel SODERSTROM (b1920's). He
believes the burial might have been in either Lowell or Billerica.
Out of curiousity, I went to the Mailing List INDEX and found, as I
suspected, that there is a WW2 List. I did a quick search, and I read
that people on the List suggest sending away for the Military Records in
order to obtain death information. (It appears to be a very busy List.)
(FYI: WW2 List is under the Military category in the Miscellaneous
Thank you for your time.
