Hi! I know very little about my paternal lineage.I know my paternal grandmother Ursula, married a Heidemann, who was a German soldier during the war.He unfortunately died during the war, and every evidence of his existence had to be destroyed due to fear of retaliation by American forces.My grandmother recently passed away, and never spoke of my grandfather for her own reasons.She never told my father of his father, and my father never knew his name.
What I do know is this.They were married in Germany, when, is unknown.They had two children, Sigfreid, who still resides in Germany, and Ernst, my father.When my father was approximately five years old, they came to Chicago.I know I have ver little to go on, and my father knows very little.
Iknow my grandmother had several sisters, which again, unfortunately, names unknown.I do know they are all deceased, and I believe they had no children.
I know they came from Hanover, or a small town near there.Anything would be tremendously helpful.
