Question ID: 746656
I am trying to track the path of a relative who may have spent a few
years in Bermuda working.  Between 1940 and 1945.  He could have
worked as an electrician or security.  He is a former NYPD officer.  I
know he died in 1947 after an 18 month stay in the hospital in new
york city.  But it's a mystery as to exactly where he was and what he
was doing.  i have a photo of him on this island (trees in background
and he appears to have a pith helmet with him).  Looking for ways to
track down where he went and why.  This could include the US or
Berumdan Immigration. Or a work visa ?   I am looking for ways to
search.  the photo may provide clues and can be found here:
There is no answer at this time.

If you can reveal the name of the person, it will greatly facilitate
efforts to find him  - in NY, Bermuda, SS file, ...   Any other
details would also help.

Have you looked up the obituary?  It may be a long shot, but worth the
try.    Sometimes obituaries reveal all sorts of details because it is
a reflection of a person life.  You don't say if you have the actual
date of death, just the year.  However, if he died in New York and was
a former policeman, he may have an obit in the NY Times or some other
paper.  This angle worked for me recently with a great-uncle who was
in the Army and served in Panama.  His obit gave me all the details I
had been trying to find.

Good luck.
