My father was in Germany in 1957-1959 in the army, His name is Thurston Lawson. He said he met a woman by the name of Brigitta Simmon there and he thinks that she may have had a child by him. The child would have been born in 1959. I have no idea which town she was in. How can I go about finding this person?

Did you pull your dad's service records from the National Personnel Service Records Center? If you pull his military records through the National Archive website you can find out the exact dates he was in Germany, the city where he was stationed and then you have a jumping off point. This narrows your search to a specific region and time frame. Your dad can request the records for free. If you request them it will be $60 and you will either need a death certificate for him or a written affidavit from him saying it is OK for you to access the records while he is alive.

I'd pull the military records as they record when he landed in Germany and when he left Germany. They record the name of his base, where it was located, his job duties, medical records, dental records, enlistment papers, discharge papers, etc. If the woman made a claim against your dad and the US Army it would be in his paperwork at the National Personnel Records Center. Most likely, she did not file a claim for child support in Germany, but it is always worth a shot. You never know what you will find in military records until you pull them. I get a surprise every time I pull records.
