Johann Gottlieb Bohme .     German Army 44th Infantry (East Prussian) Regiment   from Germany

My great grandfather was Johann Gottlieb Bohme who was born on 17th January 1873 in Kienitz, Lebus, Brandenburg, Germany. He died on 31st October 1936. I'd love to learn his journey and what he did in the military and to learn more about him. There is a military background on the German and American sides. I was born in America but all of my family is 100 per cent German, my parents being born in the Berlin blockade just outside where Hitler had his bunker etc. I found this picture of my great grandfather and was hoping someone could tell me more about the 44th Infantry East Prussia. What I know is that his mom was Luise Boehme and that he was born out of wedlock. She married a Bohm who was a locksmith.

Can you help us to add to our records?

The names and stories on this website have been submitted by their relatives and friends. If your relations are not listed please add their names so that others can read about them


Did your relative live through the Great War? Do you have any photos, newspaper clippings, postcards or letters from that period? Have you researched the names on your local or war memorial?

If so please let us know.

Do you know the location of a Great War "Roll of Honour?"

We are very keen to track down these often forgotten documents and obtain photographs and transcriptions of the names recorded so that they will be available for all to remember.

Help us to build a database of information on those who served both at home and abroad so that future generations may learn of their sacrifice.




Celebrate your own Family History

Celebrate by honouring members of your family who served in the Great War both in the forces and at home. We love to hear about the soldiers, but also remember the many who served in support roles, nurses, doctors, land army, muntions workers etc.

Please use our Family History resources to find out more about your relatives. Then please send in a short article, with a photo if possible, so that they can be remembered on these pages.
