firstly, I speak no German at all so apologies to people here.
I am researching my family who went to Magdeburg in around 1865 from Suffolk in England. I want to trace as much as I can of their lives in the forty or so years most of them spent there before some returned to England.
To start with, the relatives of mine who I'm sure of who came over were Moses Ralph and Gertrude Furrington who married in Germany I think in 1865 before having around nine children all in England, some of their ancestors are likely to be in Germany still. I also think Gertrude's family went over as I can't find any record of them in England after 1861. They are:
Lazarus (1819) father
Maria (1820) mother
William (1840) brother
George (1842) brother
James (1848) brother
Ellen (1850) sister
Harry (1856) brother
I suspect all of these went to Germany too and would love to find any info on these please.
