Hello;
the name Willée occurs many times on Geneanet, and often comes from Belgium and the north of France.
Another way of writting it is Villée , which shows that is was pronounced V and not W (like in William).
But no Wilhelm Karl, William Charles or Karl, or Guillaume Charles etc...
Why do you say he was from Alsace or Germany?

Nora Barton and W Willee had another child in 1921 called Berent (Free BMD), so he can't have died in 1917.

She apparently died in 58 in Ormskirk district, she was  called WILLEE, what does her death certificate say? widow?

Hi i think carl was german becase ronald willee  grand child said he was and other family members think he was from berlin .
Nora only ever spoke to grandchildren in german .
Im hopeing to find ronalds brother he went to autraila in 1974 or or any of his children he just vanished think he has changed his name.
Ronald is 72 and it would be lovely if he had his brother or close family relative.

Wasn't Nora english ? Why should she talk to her grandchildren in german?

Are you the friend that big g is helping?

Could the name be Herville ? Many french huguenots went to Germany , Herville is a french name.
