Death Certificates of Paris are online



I have just found a Verlustliste of the Kampfgeschwader 2
Source: Der Luftkrieg in Europa, 2 Bände, Balke Ulf, 1998

There are mentionned Bruno Adler, Fritz Bartol and Johann Egger,
who all were missed as nightfighter at Watchet on 01./02.11.1941.
Unfortunately without more personal details like date and place of birth.

Maybe this one is the right Bruno Adler, he is also missed in England in 1941!

He is mentionned on a memorial in Duttenbrunn, Markt Zellingen, Landkreis Main-Spessart, Bavaria.
But it is also mentionned that he was a "Heimatvertriebener", so he was born at another place and his family had to leave their hometown at the end of WWII.

Hi Melvin

The first word is in the sentence: "and the secondary school in Thurnen"

" Bern and he worked in the firm Stucker & Zesiger from 1896 - 1902"

Maybe you can find more information about this firm in the city directories of Bern

or in the Intelligenzblatt für die Stadt Bern

or in the Schweizerisches Handelsamtsblatt

Hi Ben

John Maurice, born 1889 & married Else Helene Ida Banse. Maurice died during WWI and the family story is that he had only been a soldier 2 days and that he had two sons. I can't find anything else on these.

Preussische Verlustliste Nr. 663, 9. Oktober 1916
Feldartillerie Regiment Nr. 4, 3. Batterie
Ralph Maurice, Magdeburg, gefallen

9 October 1916 is the date when this list was published, so his death could have occured some weeks or even months earlier.

1914/18 the Feldartillerie Regiment Nr. 4 (Magdeburgisches) served under the 7. Infanterie-Division und 234. Infanterie-Division.

Do you know in which POW Camp or hospital your father met Ellie Kirchhoff?

Hi Sam

In France a young man had to go to the army when he was 20 years of age.
First he was a recrute, then he was with the active army, and some years later he was in the reserve army.
In 1914 when WWI began most of the soldiers in reserve had to go to the active army again.

In the service record is usually mentioned his time as recrute, his time in the active army and his time in the reserve.
Further down in the service record you can see the regiments and campaigns where he was during WWI.

Hi Sam

Did you already search for his birth record in Plouha, Côte d'Armor?
Maybe his death was also registered in Plouha even if he didn't die there.

I'm not sure if the sailors are also on the "registres matricule militaire",
and you can't be sure that he was registered in the Côte d'Armor Department.

Archives départementales Côtes d'Armor

Registres paroissiaux et d'état civil (parish registers and civil offices records)

Recensement militaire - registres matricule militaire

Centres Généalogique des Côtes d'Armor

I see there are 3 Pierre Marie Le Bian, marin/sailor in the registres matricules.
As he was born in 1880 I think he is the one: Classe 1900, Matricule 779.

"Noyé accidentellement à Port Talbot le 11 novembre 1918", so this is him.

His father François Marie died before the year 1900 and his mother Marie Yvonne Bernard lived at Plouha.
