June 27 – Auguste Dorothea Wilhelmine Karoline Hennings

It was on June 27, 1977 that Djibouti gained independence from France.

And on June 27, 2007 Farouk Hosny, the egyptian Minister of Culture declared to international journalists that a mummy found in 1903 and so far neglected by research was identified by archeologists without a doubt as the female pharao Hatshepsut.

On my family tree we won’t meet a mummy for today 😉

We meet Auguste Dorothea Wilhelmine Karoline HENNINGS who was born on June 27, 1874 in Upahl, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany.

She was the fourth of six children born into the marriage of the brick layer Joachim Heinrich HENNINGS and his wife Maria Dorothea Elisabeth née EVERT.

On April 14, 1889 she got confirmed into the lutheran religion in the church of Diedrichshagen, the main village of the parish.

The 1900 census states her living with her parents in Upahl.

Just 2 years later, on November 2, 1902 she married Johann Christian HINRICHS, a labourer from Rüting, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany.

The remark with a pencil on the right provides information on the death of her husband.

So far I couldn’t find any children for the couple.

Auguste died on January 13, 1942 following a severe stroke.

  1. I love the annotations to European documents. I’ve found lots of them in the Luxembourg records. Names of children born before a marriage (to legitimize their births); information on a death on birth and marriage records; and even the changes in names during WWII when Germany occupied Luxembourg and changed all French names to German equivalents. Even marriages celebrated in Belgium or France have been added to the marriage register of the town the bride or groom were from in Luxembourg.
