I have three questions. One & two concern a book "150 JAHRE BLANKENESER SCHIFFAHRT 1785 - 1935" published in 1963 which is written in the German language. One sentence says " ... was first Hans Hinrich Tiemann (S) jr and then ..." Then in a different part of the book a sentence says "... was Hans Tiemann Jun ..." These sentences are about two different ships and events that are unrelated to each other. I think this may be father and son but I'm not sure.
My questions are: What does the (S) followed by the jr mean and what does the Jun mean in the second instance.
If more information from the book would help I can provide it.
My next question is : Does anyone have access to census reports earlier than 1803 ? Particularly Itzehoe. I'm still trying to find my 4th g'grandmother Margarethe WENDEL (abt 1867) and her illegitimate son Johann Matthias Anton ARMBRUST (abt 1869) who are in the 1803 census as family No. 315 with Dammann. What I'd really like to find is who Matthias' father was.
Thank you very much
