Familie Handke from Berlin

I am from Denmark and I am trying to help my wife searching for her ancestors, who came from Germany.

We are looking for information about:
Pauline Luise Emilie Handke, born 18.03.1879 in Berlin, as daugther of miller Johann Albert Wilhelm Handke and Ida Jeanette Alma Böhm.
We know from a travel pass from 1919 that Ida Jeanette Alma Böhm was born in Breslau 3.12.1850.

Pauline was married to Mads Langelund Andersen, 27.11.1897 in Berlin - we do not know where.
We know Mads came back to Varde in Denmark in 1897 and Pauline came to Varde Denmark in 1898.
Pauline died as a widow 5.7.1949 in Varde, Denmark

We know Pauline and Mads had at least 4 children:

  1. Hans Handke Andersen, born in Varde 12.12.1898
  2. Hertha Anna Ida Andersen, born in Varde 22.4.1900
  3. Helga Wilhelmine Andersen, born in Varde 23.5.1902
  4. Eline Louise Andersen, born in Varde 11.10.1904.
Eline is my wifes grandmother.

Hope someone can help with information of these ancestors.

Thanks in advance

Thank you very much for your help with the search for my wifes ancestors.

I have started to read and translate the files, but the German handwriting from that time is not very easy to read, but I am going to spend some time to find out exactly what the documents say.

Once again :danke:

Kind Regards
