Claude Keenan

The internet is one of the main research methods we use. There are large quantities of records available on line which we use to narrow down the search for a family. Every now and then we get a result by just typing in a name in the search engine. This also works both ways. Every so often a family doing some research of their own comes across one of our entries.

That is what happened in our search for 14732 Claude Hector Harold Keenan. Bill started this search in August 2010 with an entry on Yuku which ended up giving us the details of his children. Then in May 2011, Claude's grand daughter, Georgia, was demonstrating to her mother how to use the internet. She put Claude's name in the search engine and up came the Yuku entry.
Claude served in the 3rd Depot Unit of Supply and later the 3rd Field Butchery. The 3-D.U.S. impressed on his medal is not very common.
The medal returned tally is now 876.


  1. What a wonderful job you are doing. We are somehow related to this man and are, at present, gathering information on him to ensure we are correct. Same story, put the name into google and up came the information. I am sure his family is delighted to have such a wonderful remembrance of this man.

  2. Thank you very much for your kind comment. If you would like to drop me an email I'll have a look at my records and see what I can add to your research.
