Dear list readers,
I don't remember any law contradicting a marriage with foreigners: I guess that they didn't have all the necessary documents and perhaps in London less paperwork was required.
I would like to pass the question on to a german-genealogy Mailinglist specialized in the area of Berlin. I will hopefully come back with more information.
Perhaps you could give me more details on the couples (via private mail)? How old were the bride and groom: perhaps the age of maturity was relevant (Germany then 21)?
It would be helpful to know if the problem only occurred with marriages involving Galician Jews.
Kind regards from Germany
