They married in Cyprus in 1960 , but no trace of them after their marriage.
If anyone has any info on them please let me know.
Thank you ,

Hi , sorry not to reply sooner, I have details for John C Johnston , born London 15th January 1914, eg; birth cert, and marriage certs for his 2nd and 3rd marriages. There is a son John b 1932 from his 1st marriage. He has no info on his father as his parents split during WW2.
It`s thought there may have been twins from the 2nd but no one in the family know anything about them, his 2nd wife Sigrid Anita Erika Gerwig. She is listed as a widow on the cert., her father listed as Arthur Salzburg.
It`s not known if there were any children from his 3rd marriage as we have lost all trace of him.
The Ancestry site looks good but I don`t have access to it, thank you for that info, but not sure where to look for them next. He was a sergeant in the RAOC at time of 3rd marriage and Jacqueline is listed as NAAFI employee with 2 Field Ambulance , RAMC.

Their ages at time of marriage [1960] ; JCJ age 46 years JS age 37 years as on cert .
Thank you for your help, it`s most appreciated.

Sigrid married a Cook in 1962 and had 3 children. The first 2 are also registered under the surname Johnston, but I assume they are not the children of John.

A tree on Ancestry has Sigrid marrying a John Craig Johnston and she died in Australia.

Do you know Raymond who has SIgrid in his tree on this site?

Hello Rose,
I`m wondering if the 2 Johnston children are the twins I mentioned, there is a family rumour that they had twins but couldn`t find any info... I`m obviously not good at this look up lark!!

Could you give me the details please, also he`s definitely John Charles Johnston, I have his birth cert...

Go to Search at the top right and select Search Trees. If you look for Sigrid you will see he has her in his tree.

Thank you Rose, I`ll do that, will you let me have details of the children or are they on his tree ???

Margaret Ann Report 22 Aug 2012 22:11

Is there a surname for Raymond as I can only find a Bruce with her name in !

Also , if you can give me the 2 Johnston childrens first names and year of birth I can look for them on BMDs, How did you find her death in Australia ?
I did wonder if John and Jacqueline had emigrated as I cannot find them at all ...

Margaret,

Do you have access to Ancestry? There's a tree on there that has photos of Sigrid and says she died there.

Also, Google Sigrid Anita Salzburg.

Grace,
Is Richard King linked to this thread, or a totally separate person?

There were about 8 Richard Kings born in 1941, which one are you interested in?

Have you looked to see if anyone on here has himin their tree?
