I'm trying to find information or relatives about my husband's family, Lothar Rolf Roessing (he changed his name to include the letter e).He was born in Pirna, East Germany in 1944. In 1957 his Mom and him came to Winnipeg, Manitoba. His Mom passed away January 2, 2001.We have found pictures and the following information: Lothar's Mom: Helmine Else Hindelang, maiden name RÖSSING, born June 24, 1922 in Gadenstedt Kreis Peine. On March 21, 1942, she married Alois Hindelang, born April 8, 1916. On January 13, 1949 they were divorced.Lothar has 2 birth certificates.One right after he was born, Lothar Rolf Hindelang and one after the divorce, Lothar Rolf RÖSSING.Alois and Helmine had an older son.After the divorce, Alois apparently took the other son. Helmine's parent information: Mother: Hermine Anna Elsa Mehler born March 6, 1900 in Grob Lafferde. Hermine's parent's: Mother - Helene Mehler, maiden name Kuhring. Father - Karl Mehler lived in Grob Lafferde. Father: Bergmann Christoph Fridrich RÖSSING, born Feb. 12, 1879 in Hornhaüsen. He later lived in SchÖppenstedt. Christoph and Hermine were divorced. On July 24, 1937, Hermine married Georg Heinrich Jäckel.
We have learned that Lothar's Mom has a sister, Christa and a brother. We are not sure if there are other RÖSSING siblings. Apparently the surname was actually Von RÖSSING but for some reason, the Von was lost. I have scanned picutres that are from Germany.If any one has information and is interested in seeing the pictures please contact me.
