  1. (Please forgive the google translation.) In den letzten Jahren habe ich meine Beteiligung der Familienmitglieder im Ersten Weltkrieg als Teil der Erforschung der Untersuchung meine allgemeine Familiengeschichte. Es begann mit ein paar geheimnisvollen Bildern und in viele Bücher und viele Daten entwickelt. Ich dachte mir, dass der beste Weg, zu bewahren, was ich gelernt habe und präsentieren es auf andere Familienmitglieder wäre, eine Dokumentation über jedes Mitglied , seine jeweiligen Einheit und die Erfahrungen in den Krieg zu machen. Ich vermute, dass diese können für andere von Interesse sein , so dass ich bin auf öffentlich Entsendung sie auf Youtube . Anstatt nur mit mir Drohne in meinem fad Connecticut Tal Akzent, würde Ich mag einige Leute zu rekrutieren, um als Sprecher für die Dokumentationen zu handeln, die Memoiren der verschiedenen Menschen, die mit , oder um meine Verwandten und ihrer Einheit waren lesen . Meine erste Video wird von einem Verwandten, der in der deutschen Seebatallion in Flandern und an der Somme war sein . Ich schätzen, dass ich genug Material für über eine Stunde Video bekam , so über 15 Minuten 5 verschiedene Segmente . Hier ist ein kurzer Trailer , die ich gemacht , um zu versuchen , die Videoschnitt-Software und sehen, wie die Dinge könnten zusammen gehen. Die tatsächliche fertige Video wird auf die Voice-Overs der verschiedenen Menschen zentriert werden , mit Video- und Standbilder mit dem, was jeder Mensch beschreibt ausgerichtet ist. Ich habe auch Sound-Clips von tatsächlichen Mauser , Lee - Enfield , etc. sowie Artillerie (beide ausgehende und eingehende ), dass ich will hinzufügen , um Farbe zu liefern. Zukünftige Videos werden Verwandte von mir , die in der Gastruppen und der deutschen Kavallerie waren zu decken. Ich muss noch ein Französisch Sprach-und 3 deutsche Stimmen . Beachten Sie, dass die Teile in englischer Sprache . Die deutschen Teile reichen von einem langen Teil auf eine kurze Rolle. Der Gesamtzeitaufwandist nicht mehr als ein paar Stunden (abhängig von der Länge des Teils und wie Sie langsam lesen). Disclaimer: Dies ist ausschließlich eine pädagogische Übung. Niemand (mich eingeschlossen) wird für dieses Projekt kompensiert.
  2. For the last few years I have been researching my family members' involvement in WWI as part of investigating my general family history. It started with a couple of mystery pictures and developed into many books and lots of data. I figured that the best way to preserve what I've learned and present it to other family members would be to make a documentary focusing on each member, his respective unit and it's experiences in the war. I figure that these may be of interest to others, so I'm planning on publicly posting them onto Youtube. Rather than just having me drone on in my bland Connecticut valley accent, I'd like to recruit some people to act as voice actors for the documentaries, to read the memoirs of the different people who were with, or around my relative and their unit. My initial video will be about a relative who was in the German Seebatallion in Flanders and the Somme. I'm estimating that I've got enough material for over an hour of video, so about 5 different 15 minute segments. Here's a brief trailer that I made up to try-out the video editing software and see how things might go together. The actual finished video will be centered on the voice-overs of the different people, with video and stills aligned with what each person is describing. I've also got sound clips of actual Mausers, Lee-Enfields, etc. as well as artillery (both outgoing and incoming) that I'll add to provide color. Future videos will cover relatives of mine who were in the Gastruppen and the German Cavalry. I still need 1 French voice, and 3 German voices. The German parts range from a long part to a brief part. The total time commitment is no more than a couple of hours (depending on the length of the part and how slowly you read).

    I guess we've beaten this dead horse enough. Thanks for all of your help. - John
  4. Officer Personnel, The Kings German Legion

    Looking at the The London Gazette entry, I see a couple of other curious things... - Lutjen is not listed under "To be Lieutenants", but rather under "To be Ensigns". - His line also includes "2d Ditto", but I'm not sure what this refers to. - Lt. Buerman (nor any "Buerman") appears in the Gazette from 1-Jan 1806 through the end of 1816. Looking at other notations on the page, I believe that the "v. Lutjen" I mentioned earlier refers to "Vice Lutjen", or "instead of..." or "in the place of..." Lt. Lutjen. So it definitely looks like Lt. Lutjen was gone almost as soon as he arrived.
  5. Officer Personnel, The Kings German Legion

    Two things that seem curious: 1) There is a notation next to his name which I can't make out, 2) His date of service is not in order with the rest of the officers. Note that they generally appear to be listed in order of their date of rank -- except for Lt. Lutjen. Curious. Looking at the facing page it looks like there is an additional note. Once again I can't work it out since I'm not familiar with the writing. Note the reference to "28-Jan 1806" which is the date of Lutjen's rank. The only other reference to that date is Ensign Adolphus Hansing -- which doesn't appear to be related. The next hand written note down appears to refer to a "Buerman" dated 12 Jan 1807, and then on the right says "v. Lutjen". Does this mean that "vor (German for "for") Lutjen" or possibly something else? Looking at the regiment's page in the 1807 listing, as you describe -- Lutjen is gone but there is now Lt. Buerman listed with senority as of 12-Jan 1806. There seems to be a (minor) story here, but I can't quite figure it out.

    Awesome! Thanks for the help. Since none of my ancestors is English, I'm not very familiar with the British sources, but you've been a great help.

    Thanks Paul. It sounds like you have access to additional information that clarifies the situation. The comment about Salamanca refers to the backwards-paragraph symbol just prior to the "21st". It's partially obscured by the yellow adobe acrobat note marker. This ties back to the following explanation from page 528 of the 2nd volume of the history of the KGL. I wonder if this suggest that he temporarily held the rank of Lieutenant for a few months, and then reverted back to possibly a non-commissioned officer. BTW - Could you forward to me a copy of the page(s) which you referenced? I can PM to you my email address.
  8. Officer Personnel, The Kings German Legion

    Hello. Forgive me for resusitating an old thread. I'm trying to understand the Officer listing for a potential relative. He is listed on page 661, officer number 1235. If I interpret the listing correctly, he was... - A Lieutenant in the 2nd Line Battalion - Served without permanent rank until the battle of Salamanca, July 1812. I don't understand the dates that immediately follow this information. - 21st - 28th Jan. 1806. Resigned 1st March 1806. At the top of the officer listing under "Marks and Abbreviations" is the note that "...the fist date represents the date of the first commision in the legion; the 2nd date the date of gazettment (announced in the official Journal), or commencment of pay, and the third, the date of brevet rank in the British Army" Does this mean that he was only in the KGL for only 3 months in 1806? That doesn't make sense because according to the history, from Jan. to March of that year they had a brief expedition to Hannover that didn't result in any action, and then they returned to the UK, having recruited even more troops during their stay in their home country. Not to mention there is the note that he served without perminant rank until 1815. There were some troups who went AWOL 1806 rather then return to the UK, but if this was the case, why would he be listed as "resigned"? While it's clear that he didn't stay in the Legion up to it's disbandment in 1816, what does this record suggest that he did do???
