My great granddad William Lasman was born somewhere in Germany in 1836 and his wife Elizabeth Sallenberger in 1846 - they were married in England in 1862. Does anybody have any knowledge of them. Thank you

My great great grandfather was born in Germany about 1818. He lived in Pembroke from 1851 onwards and had 7 children. His daughter Abigail was born in 1840 in Merthyr Tydvil and he signed the birth cert with an X, but his name was John (Johan)Brickel. He was a musician (fidler). In 1841 he is living in Llanelly with his wife and daughter and their name is transcribed as Spille or Spiler. I think this is a mistake. does it mean player in German? I do not know why this musician and his family would settle in Pembroke. His wife's name is Elizabeth Michael or Michel. The family name has always been Brickle. Does anybody have any information on this name or where the man and his wife lived in Germany?

Seeking information re family LUTSCHAN and advice on how to approach archives in Hamburg. We know Rudolph (believed born Ireland 1926 and living London with father in Camden 1947 -1963. He was a sailor. for some time was living Hamburg in late 1960s and have an address in the docks area. Much info may be restricted but hope to find out about address, area and possibly address/telephone books to discover when he arrived and moved away; if not more about him. I think there is a national archives and university where records are kept. Should I approach them with the details we have and ask what types of record are available, anything on that area and whether records on Rudolph exist? Any advice gratefully received.
