Michelsen family

Classification: Query
Surnames: Michelsen
My paternal grandmother was Marta or Martha Michelsen and she was born on the 15th of Feb 1931. She married my British grandfather Gordon Howard Foster in 1955 in Germany while he was in the Military Police. They moved to the UK in the 1960's with their 2 children.

I have heard that Marta's father was stationed in Siberia in the second world war and died of frostbite, however I don't know any more than that. I also heard that her mother re-married, possibly to a man called Walter.

Marta had a sister or step-sister who had twin girls born in around the 1960's, however I don't know any more than that.

I don't know if anyone can lend me a hand in finding out anything about my family as I haven't got much concrete information sadly. Marta died in Cardiff in 1977 so I never met her. If anyone can point me in the right direction that would be amazing.

I have got two marriage certificates but I cannot decipher that names!
