Hi I hope someone can help me - I am searching for members of the Bill family from Essen-Rüttenscheid. The lady I am researching was called Hildegard Elisabeth Bill born 27.04.1924 married Raymond Holmes in Sittensen on 13.02.1948. Her parents were Minna and Joseph Bill. I would like to know if Hildegard had any siblings and if they in turn had any family. Also if her parents had any siblings and family. Thanks in advance for any help that can be given to me in my search.

Dear Anglo German Family History Society
My English ancestors May Bedworth and George Smith were friends with a German baker and his wife - they were their wedding witnesses in 1915.
John Jakob Klotz was a baker in Caledonian Road, Islington, London born in Germany in 1881 - would being friends with a German at this time been difficult for an English working class couple?
Also were Germans living in England during WWI monitored at this time?
Thank you for your help. Lorraine Orpington, Kent

Many thanks to the organizers of the October meeting in London. I am very happy that I was invited as a speaker and I had a great day there. Not only that I met the officials of the AGFHS there again and could listen to Corinna's lecture, I also got to know several descendants of German immigrants and got useful contacts. I enjoyed everything.
