Finding death of my great uncle Otto Seelig #germany #records


sgtaylormall@...
 

Hello all. I would appreciate any help in finding an date and location of death for my great uncle Otto Seelig. He was born  25 May 1879 in Posen/Poznan. He is the eldest son of Emil Seelig and Recha/Rebekka Katz Seelig. His siblings are Paul and Ernst Seelig. The Seeligs moved to  Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf, Berlin in 1900. I've indentified a 1917  marriage for Otto to Josephine Lemmen, in Berlin, a subsequent divorce and another marriage in 1928 to a Berta Pauline Annis, also in Berlin. I have been unable to find any other sources of information after the 1928 marriage.  I would like to find information regarding his death or possible relocation. Thank you for any assistance.

Hello Susan,

Otto Seelig is not in the Bundesarchiv's Residentlisten of German Jews in Germany 1933-1945, nor is he in the Bundesarchiv Gedenkbuch of German Jewish victims or the 1939 German Minority Census. Based on this info, I assume he either died or moved before 1933.

Dear Susan,
Otto Selig married Berta Annis 31 Jul 1928 in Berlin. He died already 26 Nov 1928 in Charlottenberg, Berlin. The informer on the death record was Ludwig Latz. I get the impression that his wife Berta died earlier in Nov 1928.
