Hi

The only thing I can help you now with is that you contact StadsArkiv in Stockholm. I have looked through many of their archives but with no luck.
Here is their site: http://stadsarkivet.stockholm.se/besok-oss/in-english/
There is an orphan archive but doesn't cover Walter's years unfortunately.

You can also ask for experts to look into it for 900SEK an hour. Very expensive I know, but maybe worth it.

I will keep looking, something may pop up. If you find anything new yourself please let me know and I will check it out for you.


Ian

I'm also looking at merchant navy vessels that sunk, collided or exploded 1926-36, valdis' father died at sea.

If it was a Merchant vessel. With a little patience you should be able to find the ship, (presuming of course he did not die from cause's other than the reasons you have expounded), by looking at "Lloyd's List". Lloyd's List records ship losses worldwide on a daily basis. It can be obtained on line on a free 14 day trial from
http://newspaperarchive.com/uk/middlesex/london/london-lloyd-list/1855/09-27/

If it was a British merchant ship it should be fairly easy to obtain the vessels logbook and crew agreement.

Jamcat - you're a star, thankyou for your time and patience.
Seaweed - we're not sure of the cause of death, clutching at many straws :) Aleksander was in the Swedish or possibly Latvian (or slightly possibly Estonian or Lithuanian) navy, my knowledge of Lloyds is limited but I'll search - thankyou for your advice and link!

Hi rebekahm28

The 1940 Census database has been released now which I eagerly started looking for Walter. I thought this would be a way to find him, but alas no.
I cannot find anything for a Walter, Valdis, Valdeman with all the possible surnames, not even for Annette.
Did Annette start a new family? Did she die in the 50s?
Is it possible that Annette remarried again and then having a different surname.
Have you found anymore new info yourself?
I wonder what occupation Walter had here in Sweden?

Ian

of all the Waldis/Valdis christian names in the 1940 database only about 10 are men and about 100 are women.
And none Valdeman/Waldeman as christian names.
