Erik Wieman was seeking family members of the three airmen who were among seven killed in a Stirling bomber crash near Ludwigshafen in Germany in 1943.
Mr Wieman had discovered the crash site and asked for relatives of the dead men to contact him, as plans were being made for a memorial at the site.
He said families of all three men had been in contact and he had received more than 40 emails helping him track them down. He described the result as ''superb''.
The three New Zealand servicemen who died in the crash were Flight Sergeant Alexander Hunter Holms, of Invercargill; Flight Sergeant David Herbert William Badcock, of Taranaki; and wireless operator/air gunner Warrant Officer Adrian Vincent Douglas, of Rotorua.
