I'm Astrid from Düsseldorf.
We are looking for information about Clemens Norbisrath.
He died on 26.04.1930 in Sedro-Woolley, and was buried in Bellingham.
Are there any old address books from the year 1930th
Thank you very much

I don't know if there were city directories for Sedro Wooley in that time period, but if there were, the local library should have copies. Scroll down to the bottom of this link, there is a link to contact the librarian. They wre usually willing to do a short search.

You should also ask for a lookup in the Bellingham directories.

This link has death notices for Clemens wife Alida and his son Herbert

In the 1930 U.S. federal census on, indexed "Clemens Narbesrath", born about 1877 in Germany, is listed as an Inmate at the Northern State Hospital for the Insane at Sedro-Woolley, Skagit, Washington.
