Hi...Heligoland was British from 1807 to 1890 when it was swapped with the Germans for Zanzibar....
so my gg grandfather was born there in 1848 and when he moved to Liverpool was a BRITISH SUBJECT on the 1881 census.....where on earth would I find any records of him or his family when the Island was bombed and flattened during WW2....does anyone know if any records survived and who would have them ????  allan :)
just been told by another site  kruess[at]museum-helgoland.de

Hi evryone I am a new member. I am interested in Helgoland too. My great grandfather was a lighthouse keeper there about 1870 and married a local girl. I have her birth ,marriage and passport. I have e-mailed the museum and am waiting for a reply, but given what the British did to it, there may be nothing to find. I have been there twice and still have some distant cousins  there. The Island was handed back to the residents in 1952, but there was hardly anything left standing or in one piece, including the graveyard. Its now a holiday resort favoured by Germans as it retains a duty free status(as far as I know that is still the case)

I had a pm today about helgoland. Apparently I am unable to reply until I have made 3 postings. It was from garstonite, asking me how I went the Island.
First time I went I flew to Hamburg, then I had to get to Bremerhafen to catch a ferry, took a couple of hours I think, the weather was vile. When we got to Helgoland I had to transfer to a much smaller boat(that was fun!!!!) to get to the quayside. Second time I went I flew to Hamburg and changed to a local flight. I have looked on the net to find a flight but so far no luck.

A question which is meant seriously: Will the record be for Frederick Black, or Friedrich Schwartz? In other words was English or German used on the island when it was British?
