BRET­TELL/Lon­don and Amer­ica

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - Q&A -

One of my great grand­fa­ther’s sis­ters, Elsie or Elise Bret­tell, mar­ried an Amer­i­can sailor called Val in July 1945 in Lon­don. A year later they had a son, also named Val. There’s no record of their mar­riage or a birth record for their son.

We have pho­to­graphs of the father and son dated from 1950, taken in the United States. We be­lieve con­tact was lost when my great grand­fa­ther died in a min­ing in­ci­dent in 1958. We have de­tails of other fam­ily mem­bers from re­search, but how can I make con­tact with this fam­ily? Michael Dy­mond, by email
