April 10 – Auguste Dorothea Nina Warnke

The “Titanic” part of the White Star Fleet sets sail on April 10, 1912 in Southhampton, England on her maiden voyage. She should never reach her destination New York, USA.

The “Statute of Anne” comes into force in Great Britain on April 10, 1710. It is the first law worldwide, regulating copyright.

My 2nd great grand aunt Auguste Dorothea Nina WARNKE was born on April 10, 1866 in Kastahn, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany.

She was the fourth of ten children from the farmer and cottager Johann Friedrich Gottlieb WARNKE and his wife Maria Elisabeth Wilhelmine née OLDENBURG.
