Duke of Clarence, a special steamer, sailed for Dublin in March 1915 with 200 internees of German and Austrian birth destined for the internment camp in Oldcastle, county Meath. Meath County Library is interested in getting in contact with families of those 200 men.

Does anyone know the ethnicity of the name Barliana-my great grandparents came from Germany and I found this name was given to my aunt when I was researching my family history, I am unable to find any trace of the name.Thank you

I am researching the Castle Donington POW camp in World War I. I understand that 36 German officers and their staff died of 'flu there. Apparently, their memorials are in the German Cemetery on Cannock Chase although I have visited the Cemetery yet. But I have heard that their bodies are actually buried near Donington. Can anybody enlighten me/and or let me have more details. Thank you. Peter Zimmermann (AGFHS member) firstname.lastname@example.org
