March 14 – Hans Johannes Willi Franz Freytag

At the second Schleswig Plebiscite on March 14, 1920 80% of the inhabitants of the southern Zone (Southern Schleswig) vote for remaining in Germany. Since the inhabitants of the Northern Zone (Northern Schleswig) already deciced in the first Schleswig Plebiscite that they wanted to belong to Denmark, Schleswig (a.k.a. Sønderjylland) gets officially divided into a Danish Northern part and a German Southern part. Til today, the area shares two languages. Both German and Danish are official languages on both sides of the border.

The “FBI Ten Most Wanted Fugitives” list gets published the first time on March 14, 1950.

And we stick to the 20th century.

On March 14, 1905 my second cousin twice removed Hans Johannes Willi Franz FREYTAG is born in Hamberge, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany.

He is the oldest son of August Carl Heinrich FREYTAG and his wife Johanna Maria Christine Dorothea née LUCKOW.

He received his christening on April 2, 1905 in Grevesmühlen, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany.
