Calling Genealogy 911 - Firefighter Needs Help

It's not often that we can help firefighters out, but Tim Werle needs our help as genealogy researchers.  See Susan Farrell Bankhead's post, Firefighter Needs Genealogy 911, on her Susan's Genealogy Blog.  Tim is Susan's son.

Tim asks:

"I am a firefighter in the City of Los Angeles and over the years of our existence a number of great men have lost their lives in the line of duty. We have a hall at our training center that has photos of them all with the exception of just a few. I am wondering how genealogy, record searches, and the internet can help us find a photo of these great men so that we may give them the honor they are due."

There are seven names there, all of whom died before 1944, apparently in the line of duty.

Susan asks:

"So, Dear Readers: How would you go about finding something specific you need in your research? Would you “Tweet” it or “Google” it or post a message on Facebook or head to specific internet sites?"

If you have a little extra time on your hands today, give it a try and please comment on Susan's blog if you find something.
