I am trying to verify some information regarding my Austrian great grandfather and his brother who were apparently interned at Alexandra Palace, London during WW1. I have been told you may hold a list of names of interns? Both my great grandfather Mr Franz Veith and his brother Josef/Joseph Veith were UK residents before they were interned and stayed in London after the war. I would very much appreciate any help or guidance you can give.

Sorry, should have said he got married inn Bethnal Green, London and was living in Albion Rd in 1841, by which time he and Elizabeth had 2 children.
I found a Georg Ludwig Haupt in Berlin who had a child with a Sophie Voss called Johann Friedrich, baptised in the Berliner Dom, but I don't know if this is the same man. I can't find any more information out about him at all. Any ideas would be very gratefully received.

Hi, I'm trying to find out about one of my ancestors Georg Ludewig Haupt who was born in Prussia, but married Elizabeth Reed in 1835 and was a sugar baker. In the 1841 census he is listed as being 35 years old, though I understand that ages were rounded up or down to 5s. Does anyone have any idea how I can even start to find out where Georg Ludewig was born or the names of his parents, etc.?
