Name: Franz Martin Adolf Grützmacher 

Place of birth: Mecklenburg,Schwerin,Lübtheen

Dob: 1907

Immigrated to South Africa around 1934.

I am looking for help building my familytree. My grand father was Franz Martin Adolf Grützmacher from Mecklenburg,Schwerin,Lübtheen.

He immigrated to South Africa just before the 2nd world war.

Any help with information around his father, mother or related family will be appreciated. Most records seem to have been lost in ww2.

The date for this at the National archives shows 1914 however, the probate records were filed in 1923.

Maybe this is the person you're looking for.

Normally I prefer that you have the profile open to better assist you.

This is a person named 

  GRUTZMACHER, FRANZ ADOLF MARTIN LUDWIG.   

 Here is the link to the Estate papers 

If that person born in 1907 is your grandfather then it looks like his father and mother accompanied him to South Africa

Thanks Louis. Anyway I can see these records without submitting my personal details to lds?

Not your details, the profile under investigation

Schucks, you need an account with FamilySearch. It's free anyway.

Lol, no option other than creating a ‘free’ account.

The t&c and privacy policy looks like fun ...

Anyway thanks for the help.
