My father married my mother, Edith Gertrude Ebrecht, just prior to WWII. He came from the Hamburg area. They moved to Toronto, Canada in 1951.
They had 5 children Ingo, Maya, Elke, Cora and Maureen (born in Canada). Ingo was my mother's from a previous marriage to German Band Leader Rudy Becker.
Both my parents were only children. If anyone recognizes a link to your family, I'd be interested in hearing from you.
