German Family


Well-known member

Does anyone know anything about researching German Families who went to live in England prior to the 1st World War.

I have a Henry Cooke who was born in Liverpool in 1904 and apparently either of his parents were German or his grandparents were. At present i don't know where to start as it was a big family secret up until Henry Cooke died, nobody ever spoke of it. Also all the children in the family were born after the 1901 census.

Thanks for any help.
