|Bio and Links|
I live in Cheshire in the North of England and I have compiled a number of biographies of Agents of the French Section of the Special Operations Executive,who were captured and executed by the Nazis during the Second World War.|
If you have come to this site to compile details of your family tree and this does include members of the Special Operations Executive.
If you wish to know more about the work of S.O.E the book by M.R.D. Foot - The Special Operations Executive can be obtained from many libraries in any major town or any University.
If you are tracing your family tree and you have information passed down from family members, concerning a relative being an active member of a Maquis group - or linked to one of the S.O.E. networks. Please note unless your family member joined S.O.E. and was trained in England, records would exist,if not trained in England no-record would exist for this person. Many recruits joined an S.O.E. network and were trained in the field and did use an 'alias'- the work involved was very dangerous carrying messages and equipment to other groups.
When captured many of these brave young men and women gave the alias as their real name. After brutal interrogation by the Gestapo. Many were then executed and buried in nearby woods,in mass graves, some were transported to concentration camps and executed upon arrival,their bodies then placed in the crematorium furnace, and their ashes scattered with other concentration camp prisoners
Because of this procedure being enforced by the nazis-it is not possible to trace numerous people,who died at the hands of the Germans.
Many young men were also deported for forced labour in Germany and were worked to exhaustion, often in the underground factories.When they died were placed in a mass grave.
Many families in France never saw the young male members again, who were sent to Germany for forced labour..

Thanks for the tip about the book. Much appreciated.
|Richard Lutz||RE: image of Andree Borrel on bicycle|
Thank you Paul.
|Richard Lutz||RE: image of Andree Borrel on bicycle|
Thanks for your rely Paul. Much appreciated.
I had hoped you could find the email address of the person who sent you the image and ask them to contact me in relation to obtaining a public license for the image from the owner/copyright holder, so it can be used in the Wikipedia article about Andree.
I need more info about the creator/owner/date of the photograph or it will likely be deleted if I try to upload it to Wikipedia without this info.

Dear Mr Monaghan,
I had wondered where you sourced the wonderful image of Andree Borrel on a bicyle that you uploaded to Find-A-Grave on 10/26/2011, as I would like to obtain permission from the owner/copyright holder to use it on a website that requires a public license to do so.
Thank you for your time.
Thank you for visiting Alan Turing again last Thursday. What a beautiful picture of his statue! I added it to my scrapbook today!
|Kate Duvall||Thank you for honoring Alan Turing on his Angel Day today!|

No Paul .
I am not a relative of Andree Borrel .
I read about her and was deeply moved by her story .
There was already a page to her on this site . Memorial number 19971221 which was posted in 2007 and it is terrible. It's not accurate and its very badly written .
I found there is another Page to her by the CWGC . Posted in 2010 . Memorial 56075145 . This one is excellent but doesn't have your photos .
And now you tell me of another . Yours . 66222922 .
I looked and it's also excellent .
Three sites seems too much but I can do nothing about the others . Even the appalling one !
|Carol Harbushka||RE: Re : Surname Haddock.|
My earliest confirmed confirmed is Robert Armstrong Haddock, son of Thomas Haddock of England. I do not have a World membership to ancestry.com so cannot go any further with this line until I have time to go to the LDS Family History center which is about 40 miles from me. I don't know where in England they are from, but I believe it to be Lancastershire, wife from Yorkshire about 1800.
|McLane-Stroup Family||RE: Re : Surname Haddock.|
Yes, Paul, I realize.
Amazing timing. I know of three who served in the US Army.
Lieut. Charles Richard Haddock, 28, son of Mr. and Mrs. T.J. Haddock of Cape Girardeau, Missouri, was missing in action in Belgium, Dec. 17 (year unknown, information from photocopied clippings I found yesterday).
He was liberated from a German prison camp. His wife and daughter were living in Indianapolis, Indiana, at the time.
He entered service in 1942 and received his commission as a field artillery officer at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. He also received training at Ft. Leonard Wood, Missouri, and Camp Maxey, Texas, and went overseas in October 1944 to England and then Belgium.
He had two brothers also in service, Maj. T.R. Haddock, a dentist, and First Lieut. James N. Haddock, a physician with the Army Medical Corps.
If you provide a direct email address, I can send a scan of the articles.
This family is not a direct relation, perhaps cousins linked to Thomas Jefferson Haddock, a Civil War veteran who homesteaded in Missouri.
