My German Ancestry

My birthmother Hildegard Charlotte Weide – born Schury was German, (*21st. may 1921 – + 1. February 1965) in Charlottenburg, Berlin. She was married twice, first she was married to Otto Wohlgemuth (*17th. May 1921 in Sweden -?) – 16. juli 1941 in Berlin-Mitte and divorced him in 1950. They had one daughter Michaela Matschass (*23. January 1944) who married her husband Hans Georg Matschass in app. 1964. She doesn’t have any children. She has uttered she dosen’t want any contact, but was kind enough to send photos of herself and one of my biological mother and grandmother.

Hildegard married again 6th. July 1954 to Karl Weide (*23. November 1909 – + 22. July 1969) and they divorced again 15th. August 1961.

A year later she had me on the 14th. August 1962. I was born app. 2 months early, on Auguste – Viktoria Krankenhaus, and was later admittet to Kinderheim Elisabethstifft.

My biological grandmother was Martha Schury born Werner *17.04.1896 in Bad Altheide, Poland +1974. She was married to Otto Hermann Schury (+04.11.1892 in Bernstein, Kreis Soldin) the 20th. November 1920 in Bad Altheide, Poland.

My biological mother sadly died very young in 1965, and due to that and my sister not wanting contact (and not having much information) I’m a bit lost. So if you can provide any information I’d be most grateful. I’m at present trying to get information on my grandparents from the German autohorities. We’ll see how it goes. I among other things need to know:

If my mother had any brothers or sisters (I don’t think so, but would like to know for sure)?

What was the name of my mothers father and when was he born? (it has been said that he dissapeared one of the last days of the IInd. World WarI) I now know his name, and date of birth as you can see. I’m now trying to get a birthcertificate and a deathcertificate as well both from what is now Poland.

That’s among a lot of questions I have, but if you have any information in relation to any of the above people or you’re related in any way. Please get in touch here or leave a comment.

Update as per September 2016!: I have now found my biological father and his family in the US. I have a brother and sister and also two cousins. I’m over the moon and now have more info about my family in the US than the German side. You can see here, how that came about:
