My wife and I are travelling to the Philippines in early January 2007. We are part of a small military history tour visiting the sites of events during the start of WWII in the Pacific.

My wife was raised in a house in Wapato, Washington which was built by a family who were interned in the Philippines - A.G. Henderson, wife Marion, and son George. Mr. Henderson was a major stockholder in a shipping company and made frequent trips to the Philippines.

We are trying to find more information about this family and their internment. We think they were at Santo Tomas or Los Banos but have not found their names on the internet.

We are hoping you may help guide us to lists of internees or other sources of information. We realize this is fairly short notice but any help you can provide will help us with our connection to this part of history.
