    What a fascinating and moving story. Thank you so much for sharing this. I echo the idea of getting photos and other materials back to the family to which they belong. First I scan everything, of course, to maintain a complete genealogical record for our family and close friends. Then I give the originals to the cousin or friend or whoever should rightfully have them. This is my way of trying to have family documents, photos, and memorabilia be passed down to the children, grandchildren, and beyond. Incidentally, family friends sometimes turn out to be distant cousins–so this process is helping me identify specific relationships, also.

    Wallace Harris was my uncle, my mother’s younger brother. He was captured in Germany in December 1944 after his planed was shot down. and was imprisoned in Gernamy until May 1945 when the camp was liberated. His daughter Shirley is the child of Wallace and his first wife Dorothy who died at her birth. He and his wife Ina Fay had two more daughters, Lynda and Shari. I am in touch with them all.
