Bernhard N Mauritz Von Konigsberg possibly died in Vic.

The youngest son was Colin Neil. He must have married - looks as though he stayed in WA.

BERNHARD BRUNO JOHAN MAURITZ. of German nationality, born at Konigaberg. Germany. and resident seventeen (17) years in Australia. now residing at Morawa. WA. intend to apply for Naturalisation under the National its Act. 1920-1936.
 
If the Beryl who married Bernhard was also German then there are 48x Beryl born WA 1910- 1911.

And my tree would be very wrong and Bernhard junior would have the wrong grandparents, etc...

Usually on military records the father, if alive, is noted as next of kin, but on Leon's records he has Beryl as his NOK. His father would have still been alive. With that and also that Bernhard not been with Beryl on the E/R im wonder if infact Beryl and him had split up??
 
Thanks gibbo.

A son has the middle name Noble ?? so that should be Beryl's maiden name but that records has (Morris) ??
 
Bernard Noble August b. 1935 , WA ??

Bernhard N Mauritz Von Konigsberg 1980 Bendigo ? Is that 1980 a death or electoral roll index year??

I can't find a death in Vic. in 1980 or any year as Mauritz or Von K or Konigsberg.

We need first to prove the eldest son's middle name is N= Noble.

If it is then his mother would be Beryl Noble and her parents and ancestors are well known. But then I don't understand the bit about about being German.

If it is not Noble then there are lots of births 1909 - 1910 in WA for a Beryl but then finding a marriage that fits will not be easy.
