Raaby was a WWII hero for his radio reports on German military. He later was the radioman on Kon Tiki (Thor Heyerdal)--see below. All I can find is that he was born in Dverberg but I cannot determine who his parents were.

I have family roots is Dverberg and would love to know if we are related.

Private User, - We made an effort yesterday on finding sources on his birth and parents.

What made it difficult was that Dveberg was named Myre at that time and that the Raaby name came later in life from his second great grandfather Lars Raabye.
