February 1, 1946 is the first working day of the Norwegian Trygve Lie. He is the very first Secretary-General of the United Nations.
And one of the most famous pictures of the world has been taken today in 1968. The chief of South Vietnam’s National Police Nguyễn Ngọc Loan killed the handcuffed prisoner Nguyễn Văn Lém, a suspected Viet Cong member with a shot in the head.
And on my family tree we have a wedding anniversary to celebrate for this day.
On February 1, 1878 my second cousin 4x removed Heinrich Johann Joachim REUTER, a fee farmer living in Groß Pravtshagen, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany married Helene Dorothea Maria DÜBROCK, a farmer’s daughter from Wotenitz, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany.
Heinrich was born July 18 1845 in Upahl and the 1867 census shows him still living with his parents in Upahl, working as a stableman.
Beween 1867 and 1878 he moved to Groß Pravtshagen and took over a fee farm. He died September 15, 1914 in Grevesmühlen.
Helene was born on November 29, 1857 in the village Wotenitz, Mecklenburg-Schwerin, Germany.
So far I couldn’t find any children for the couple following (or even before) the wedding. And I am missing Helene’s death entry, too.
