Due to the political pressure in Great Britain during World War I. King George V. adopts the family name Windsor after the Royal Family’s place of residence in favour of “House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha” the original German descendance on July 17, 1917.
On my family tree we meet my 3rd cousin 2x removed Werner Joachim Hans Hermann August FREYTAG.
He was born on July 17, 1912 in Kastahn, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany as second oldest of five children into the marriage of Richard August Joachim Johann FREYTAG and his wife Berta Wilhelmine Elise née WARNKE. One of my many FREYTAG-WARNKE combinations, I might add 😉
Werner received his christening on August 11, 1912 in Diedrichshagen, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany. Barely one month before he died on September 9, 1912. His father registered his death with the officials on the same day.
Werner got laid to rest in Diedrichshagen on September 12, 1912.
