Hello there,
a good friend of mine is searching for his birthfather. He doesn´t speak or write english and that´s why I will help him. Here is the search. If anyone have an idea, let me know please.

Hello to all. I´m Lothar. I´m born August 15th 1947.
My mothers name is Lotte Kraus. In 1946 she went for working to Schwaebisch Gmuend/Germany. Here she had an affair with my biological father. She is unsure about his firstname, sounds like Waidi, Wally, Whitey, Wallace, Walter. Also possible his initials are V. D. His lastname for sure is Grimes.
He served for the US-Army. In Schwaebisch Gmuend he was stationed either in the Hardt-Kasern or Bismarck-Kasern.
My mother went back to her hometown. Here she recognized she was pregnant. Her family sent her back to Schwaebisch Gmuend for searching my father. She did not found him anymore. He was three years older than my mother, must be born in 1925 and he was white. He must be around 85 (!) now. His approximate age when he was with my mother was 22. I wished to know if he still alive or if I have some other relatives in the US. No financial interests! Thanks for any help. Lothar F.

Hello antkeddie,

tx for your help. Unfortunately I find out this is not the right person. A american friend of mine talked with his oldest daughter. She said that her Father was never in the Army in Germany. He was in the Navy over in the Pacific Ocean during that time period.
