      From David Tearle, July 2016:
      "I have been unable to find out anything further concerning Alexander Minter's history in Germany. I have tried the usual internet searches plus have sent several letters to possible relatives in Germany. My cousin, Rosemarie Osborn, has carried out a comprehensive investigation on both ancestry.co.uk and ancestry.de. Thus far, we have no more information than that recorded on the website."
