My grandfather on my dads side of the family passed away in 1979. I was born in 1989 and hence never got to meet him. I have made numerous attempts to locate relatives of his throughout the years, and unfortunately every lead I've ever had, has turned up a dead end... My grandfathers name was Gerhard Alexander Spillmann and to the best of my awareness, he was born in Berlin in 1909. I believe that he may have grown up in Vienna and also studied there, as his mother was Austrian (Hermine von Schellenberg, nee Weihe). His father was a Hungarian citizen (Otto Spillmann). I have been made aware that my grandfather had relatives in Austria who may or may not still be around, and I am trying desperately to find someone who knows someone who will know who they are. Any information would be greatly appreciated!
When my grandfather passed away in 1979, he left a wife and three children behind in Sweden. Had he lived today, he would have been 108 years old and had six grandchildren who are all wanting to find out who he was and where he came from.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch, should you know anything that may be relevant to my search.
