Hi. My name is Ramona and I live in Everett, WA.

I inherited a photo album from my late cousin that belonged to her dad. He was in the US Navy from sometime in the mid-20s to about 1931. I am donating the album and some of its photos to the U.S. Navy in Washington, DC. They would like to know what ship he served on. I don't have his social security number. I have his birth and death dates.

The photos are of several ships, including the USS Colorado and USS Pennsylvania. The pictures are from Hawaii, Canal Zone, Cuba, San Diego and Santa Barbara. He took pictures of the 1925 Santa Barbara earthquake in 1925. I donated these pictures to UC of Santa Barbara.

How would I find out what ship he served on? He died in 1966. His son died in 1978 and his daughter in 2009. His wife died in 1998. There are no other relatives still alive.

Thanks,


Ramona

Hello and welcome from NZ to this wonderful site. I am sure someone here can help you but I was thinking that if you have donated the album and photos to Washington, they could come up with the records you are looking for. Regards Ronnie
