December 22 – Elise Maria Rudolfine Koop

This is my first blogpost using the mobile app… please forgive me if it looks awkward, I still fight with all the functions ;) but sitting in my parent’s living room on the huge and cozy couch writing a blogpost is kind of cool ;)

I didn’t really find the time or the nerves to blog over the holidays. Which means a few days in my family tree are still to come. We start again with December 22.

28 years after the construction of the Berlin Wall the Brandenburg Gate gets re-opened on December 22, 1989.

Karl VI. gets crowned as roman-german Emperor in Frankfurt on December 22, 1711.

And on my family tree Elise Maria Rudolfine KOOP died on December 22, 1953 in Upahl, Mecklenburg, East-Germany.
