Tracing German during ww1 living/married in England - disappeared in 1915
« on: Thursday 10 January 19 15:59 GMT (UK) »
Where do I  look for German man married to English woman in 1909, fathered 2 children (last child born here 1915) and then disappeared. I have none of his family to relate to.

Thanks

Have you found them on the 1911 census - their marriage certificate should give the name/occupation of his father as a starting point  :)

Welcome to Rootschat

When you say he disappeared - do you mean you can't trace him after then or do you mean he abandoned the family in 1915?

What is his occupation on the 1909 marriage cert?  If he was a mariner - he may have drowned at sea  but we really need to know what other info you have

Can we have names of him & wife /location of marriage etc etc

Beryl,

It may have been that your man was one of those interned on the Isle of Man - see this link:

Was he still around for birth registration of child born 1915? When was that child born? Was it conceived pre-war? I think when war was declared that Germans living in Britain were given time to leave. Wouldn't any who remained have had to register as aliens?

If you give his name, then I can check Internee Burials on IoM.
But most internee records are at The National Archives.

See www.knockaloe.im for more information on IoM Internees.
