Hello, I'm new to this site, but not new to family research! Have been researching my husband's family for some 10 years, and have got back to mid 18th century and possible connections in Germany. However, I'm stuck on a couple of relatives - they seem to have disappeared off the face of the earth in the early 20th century, and I cannot find them on BDA etc. Anyone help? Looking for Beatrice Eidmann (know as Kate) and her brother Algernon. Family stories put them in Weston Super Mare, where Kate possibly married later in life - but I'm not having any success finding them. Any suggestions where I go from here? :kissu:

Thanks Julie - yes those are my Eidmans! That's the info I have - Beatrice and Algernon are the ones I'm trying to track down (Beatrice was known, apparently, as Kate) No family members left (other than my mother in law who is 91) who have any recollection of them. Mother in law seems to think she married late-ish in life and went to live in Weston Super Mare, and that she had a son who had learning difficulties. Other than that, nothing.

If you track anything else down about her would be interested to know! Always thought that as name was unusual it would be easy to find, could be misspellt in records is only other thing I can assume.

Hi,

Have got up to Dec 1915 for marriages still havnt come across Beatrice/Kate,
though some of Ancestrys indexes are missing:-

April 1/4 1904
Dec 1/4 1906
Dec 1/4 1908
Sept 1/4 1909
June 1/4 1912

She could be in one of those you can check these on findmypast, but it is pay per view. This looks like Harold marriage year 1906 Harold Adam Eidman district Cardiff.

Thank you again Julie. Suspect any marriage would be after 1906, when parents died and Harold married(he is our grandfather and I have his details) Harold moved house when he married and later moved again (around 1919) so don't know if that's a link? Will carry on looking!
