January 24, 2010

Thanks for sending me the list of desserters for the above. Unfortunately the person I was looking for, my grandfather, was not on that list - his name is "Frank McKenna". 

Am I pushing my luc(h)k by seeking your further advice on who I might contact in the US Navy to obtain records of seaman around the 1910 era.

hanks again for your help.
