This is the first in what may become a regular post: TravelGenee’s Friday Family History Finds. They will be interesting bits and pieces I have found recently while researching my own family history.
Week #1 of TravelGenee’s Friday Family History Finds
I have had online access to Francis KITTO’s military records for a few years now however the writing is unclear in many sections and I need to learn more about understanding the military short hand so I was uncertain if he was involved with the Gallipoli campaigns in World War 1. This week I found a notice in the Evening Post from Wellington, New Zealand, mentioning he had spent “eight months on Gallipoli”.
See the third paragraph for details on Private F Kitto.
Birth 29 Mar 1881 in Taranaki Street, Wellington, New Zealand.
Death 25 Nov 1918 in Military Hospital Suttonberry, UK.
My family History for 12 December 1918.
Did you have any interesting finds this week? Feel free to comment.
