Robert Report 8 May 2020 16:06

Hildegard was born on 28th May 1921 at Luneburg, Lower Saxony , according to her death certificate. She married Wilhelm Heckmann in the early 1940's. Wilhelm was born on 3rd October 1918 at Ludenscheid and died 1st November 1942 at Liegnitz, Poland. In 1947, Hildegard married Joseph Thompson a British soldier in 1947 at Klagenfurt, Austria. I have not been able to trace anything about Hildegard and Wilhelm other than their birth records. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
