Re: Looking for family of Julius JACOB who emigrated to Australia in 1939 from Willmars, Germany #germany #general

Dear Dmjacobs,
Julius Jacob, born 5-May-1876, died 14-Jul-1957 is buried next to Berta Jacob (nee Rheinganum), born 11-Jun-1887, died 5-Jul-1941. She is presumably his wife.
You can do the search yourself from
and view the headstone.
Several files in the National Archives  state that he arrived on the "NIAGARA" on 11-Mar-1939
however, I haven't found Berta's arrival documented. The evidence may be in one of Julius's files, which have not yet been digitized.

I hope this helps,
