Husbands Grandmother Ilse Harig
« on: Monday 22 January 18 14:04 GMT (UK) »
Hi I'm trying to find where to start in tracing my husbands German grandmother and her German family. The problem is he did not know them as he has not had contact with his mothers side of the family since he was a baby and didn't even realise he was part German. They married just after the war and she came to England to live. I have their marriage cert which I've attached any guidance would be lovely  her date of birth 13th February 1923 and she died in Hastings in feb 1990.  Thankyou Sue

Ancestry has some international records online, including some for Germany, which can be accessed free from local libraries in the UK.  It may be worth looking to see if you can find any Lutheran baptism record on there for her as a starting point.

Hi Sue

On the marriage cert, the father ist stated as Eugen Harig.
Hagerweg 3, Krefeld.

I had a look through the Krefeld address books and found following entries.

1931 – Eugen Harig Kaufmann (merchant), Eichental 21

1938 – Eugen Harig Kaufmann (merchant),  Hagerweg 3

1940 – Eugen Harig Kaufmann (merchant),  Hagerweg 5

1958 – Eugen Harig Rentner (pensioner),  Hagerweg 3
1958 – Eugen Harig Kaufmann (merchant),  Crön 39. (this must be a son)

There is only 1 Person (apart from 1958) named Harig listed in all books, so it must be „your“ Harig.

All these streets are in Krefeld-Uerdingen

Thank you so much. This is something that means so much to me as my husband hasn't got any family and to think I could find someone from this is great.  Sue

German law governing the access to vital (birth, marriage and death) records is very strict.

Births – 110 years
Marriage – 80 years
Death – 30 Years

Therefore Ilse´s birth certificate, 1923, is still protected and can only be obtained by direct descendants from the registry office where the birth was registered.

Standesamt Krefeld
Rheinstraße 138
47798 Krefeld

Martina Erdmann
Beschaffung von Urkunden und Fragen zur Familienforschung
Telefon: 0 21 51 / 86-2361
E-Mail:martina.erdmann@krefeld.de

I talked to Frau Erdmann this morning and she said:
Apply in writing stating clearly who you are, and why you´re eligible to apply for the cert.
Enclose as much information as possible. I would also enclose a copy of the marriage cert.

~~~~~~~~----------
Other records, out of the protection range can be found in the

Stadtarchiv Krefeld
Konrad-Adenauer-Platz 17
47803 Krefeld

Telefon: 0 21 51 / 86-2701
E-Mail:stadtarchiv@krefeld.de

Krefeld-Uerdingen

Geburten/Births - 1798-1907
Heiraten/Marriage - 1798-1937
Sterbefälle/Deaths - 1798-1987

I contacted the archive today
Mail them, (they accept queries in English) stating who / what you are looking for.

i.e. birth certificate Eugen, abt 1900
marriage certificate Eugen, abt 1920

If you want them to research for you it will cost € 12 / 15 minutes. i.e. € 48 Hour

Hope this helps

Dave
