When and Why
« on: Tuesday 05 February 19 21:23 GMT (UK) »
Hello, I am new to this site.

I have traced great grandparents, I have their death certificates.

I would love to know when they moved to the UK and why. I think they came over to the UK around war times from Germany, its so intriguing, why? I can't find any record under their names, other than the death certificates which were in Scotland. Any help greatly received.

Thanks!

There aren't passenger lists for people arriving from Europe.
What war? WWI? WWII? other?
Any children born in U.K.?
If you give us an idea of names and dates we might be able to help further.

Not that I can find under the names on the death certificate, but this is new to me.

Sure, Heinrich August Wilhelm Dwenger born 1910 and Frieda Martha Emma Dwenger (Laake) born 1914. I don't think the children were born in UK.

WW2 Im assuming.

Thank you

You won’t be able to name them as born too recently, but what years were Heinrich’s children born?
Is one the 1947 marriage in Devon?

Thank you Karen, that is amazing.

I only know of one child, not sure where or when born. I couldn't find any record of uk birth, but I am a novice.

What does this mean, please?

Thank you all for your help, I'm so pleased.  :)
