Germany location of death registration
« on: Saturday 02 February 19 14:53 GMT (UK) »
Request for info/advice, not a request for a search.
In 1904-ish my great grandfather, born in Rotthausen (Gelsenkirchen NRW), living in Dortmund, died while on a trip to "somewhere in the USA". His family were at home in Dortmund at the time. Would his death be registered in Germany, even though he died abroad, and if so would it be in the place where he was born or his last place of residence. The birth and marriage records of some of my relatives have all sorts of useful dates annotated in the margin by the Standesamt eg date and place of death, birth of children etc, but not this one, sadly.

What is your great grandfathers name?
when was he born?

Side notations on deaths are sometimes found on birth records

Cunning idea, but I have the records of birth and marriage but there are no helpful annotations I'm afraid
