Trying to trace Americans who served in the RCAF

Post by smudgersmith218 »

Hi all,

Has anyone any experience of obtaining details on Americans in the RCAF. If so can they give me a few pointers. Who / what in Canada is the best option to make contact with. I have tried for the past year without any success.

Also, how would I go about tracing the families of Americans killed in action, is there a organisation out there. ANY help or pointers welcome.

Kind regards

Here is a link address for RCAF aircraft which may lead to aircrew. I'll keep searching for the other link.
