It is about the index created by Len Metzner. I have a copy of one registration, and I just found out by his projects that he has got many more publications. How could I get hold of some of them or get to talk to anyone responsible for those files, please? My phone number is 02084329801. I have been trying to contact you by phone as well. Please give me a feedback. Thank you.

I am a relatively new member of the Society and am trying to find more on my g-grandfather HEINRICH FRENZELL (later Henry Frenzel), born in Dresden about 1843/44. I think I have tracked him sailing on the ship Panther from Boulogne to London in Oct 1867 and he is fairly easy to track after that through various censuses, marriage, birth of children etc, particularly in the Birmingham/Wolverhampton areas. The census also refers to him having naturaliased status but I havent been able to get any further on this on line thro TNA. Please can anybody advise on how I might be able to find out more about Heinrich and his family in Dresden before he came to England. Many thanks

Johan Christian Theodor Leonhard Schleiermacher. I am hopeful I can get a photocopy of an entry for the above man who emigrated/arrived England on 24th of February 1854. I am not clear as to whether this is a date of emigration or arrival. He seems to have lived in England for nearly 4 years until he enlisted in the British Army. I understand that details of this entry can be found in the following publication,Karl Thomas; Die Waldeckische Auswanderung zwischen 1829 & 1872 Koelin: M Thomas, 1843 2 vols. This publication is not available anywhere in this area hence my post. If anyone could help me out with this information I would be so grateful. I can be contacted direct and my email is as follows: firstname.lastname@example.org Really hopeful of a reply, Merran
