Classification: Query
Surnames: Skydeberg / Liu
My grandmother was Elizabeth Lucy Mathilda Skydeberg born in 1886. Her father Wilhelm Christian Alexander Skydeberg , was born on the 1st of April 1857 in Neumunster , Germany.Evidence of his baptism was found in the Neumunster Registry books of the Evangelical-Lutheran Church.
Wilhelm left Germany in 1874 setting sail on a ship for Canada.He would have been 17 years of age , as he was born in 1857 , but the documents from Glace Bay , Canada , say that he was 20. He would have increased his age to be allowed to work on board the ship.
Wilhelm would have arrived in Mauritius some time between 1874 and 1882.
He married Louise Marie Clemence Des Etangs in 1882 in Mauritius. They had 6 children , one of whom was my grandmother.
All of that is most fascinating , but the missing piece of the puzzle is the Chinese connection between Skydeberg and Liu.I'll browse through all the genealogical sites that I may have visited over time and hopefully will retrace the one that stated both marriage date and location of the Skydeberg / Liu marriage.
