November 8 – Today in my family tree

A short one again today.

November 8, 1895 – Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen discovers the X-rays how he personally called them. In Germany and most of the Middle- and Eastern European area they are known better as Röntgen-rays.

And on November 8, 1990 the Albanian president Ramiz Alia announces that all churches and mosques which had been closed down since 1967 will be re-opened.

On my family tree Christine Dorothea Sophia Luise FREITAG is born on November 8, 1866. I don’t know where by now since only her birthdate is mentioned on her wedding record.

She married Heinrich Johann Peter FRAHM, my 2nd cousin 4x removed on August 6, 1889 in Hohenkirchen, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany.

Til then she lived as a housekeeper in Wohlenberg, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany.
