Re: Alexander Wilhelm Becker
I just had another look at the record on national archives and on the 2nd last page where it says marital status if you look carefully I think it says "separated" and this was crossed out and widowed put in instead
His place of birth is very hard to read but appears similar to the one you posted in your first message
He said he came here in 1899 to Melbourne on ship Adriana but he did not show up on the records
Maybe his name spelt wrongly on the immigration index or spelt another way.Becker does not sound very German does it?
What do you think about the separated comment if that is what it is?
