LITTLE BYTES OF LIFE

Genealogy & Technology

Janice Nickerson of Upper Canada Genealogy is trying to help her cousin reunite a set of WWI dog tags with descendants or relatives of the soldier. Here’s what she knows:

The soldier’s name was Victor Kaschytza, born on December 17, 1899, in a town called Myslowitz (now called Myslowice), which is a city in Silesia in Southern Poland, near Katowice. He was killed September 8, 1918 at Warville at the Somme.

He was a Wehrmann in the Royal Prussian Reserve Infantry Regiment No. 46. The number of the tag is: EBOR 62.3.K.4458 (there could be another number at the end but there’s an indentation on the tag so it’s hard to know for sure).

Any ideas? My cousin lives in Vancouver, Canada. Her husband’s grandfather had these tags in his possession, but no one knows why.

If you can help Janice in this quest, please contact her. There may be a family out there who would love to have these tags returned.
