I just started my genealogical research a few years ago. One of my research side-trips involves my uncle "Rheal Robineau" who was shot down over Germany in February 1944. I have some details of the crash from the Royal Canadian AirForce investigation after the war. One quote from their report says:

" "The plane Crashed 1.5 km south west of Frankenhofen (L48/X-377713). Witness states that an aircraft came from the direction of the target in flames at approximately 02:00 hours. When over the village it made three large descending spirals, finally crashing in the woods, 1.5 km south west of the village."

Someone on Facebook pointed me to the usefulness of local Heimatverein. My long-winded intro is to get to my question as to whether anyone is aware of a local
Heimatverein around Frankenhofen. Apparently these Heimatverein's sometimes have historical material and may have archived reports of the crash or photos.

Thanks for any assistance you can provide.
