Re: The child of a maid in Oberhausen #germany

Corinna Woehrl (nee Goslar)

Hello Frantisek,

if you knew, where Agata lived, you may find a hint for finding the ancestor 'involved'. Plus: young Jewish women usually would rather work in/for a Jewish and not for a Christian family. A maid normally lived with the family and she would have had to register when she moved to Oberhausen and took up work. Oberhausen has a city archive and they seem to have kept the population registers (Melderegister). But even if you find the family she worked for: the father of the child could bee a friend of the family, a neighbour, a co-worker...

Good luck for you further research! Regards from Germany
