## 4-7 Just to clarify: the present-day descendants always knew that
the couple lived in Vienna from 1914 until the early 1930s.
Sometime in the early 1930s they went to live in Holland.
They were still there when Holland was under Nazi occupation.
And what I didn't say: they had died by the end of 1942.
They (the present-day descendants) have now become aware of this document which seems to indicate that the couple didn't go directly from Vienna to Holland but spent some time in Cologne and departed from there to Holland -- so they are intrigued by this.
(It is odd that the document says "zuletzt in Köln wohnhaft". I suppose it means that the last time they were living on German soil it was in Cologne. Obviously they really lived "zuletzt" in Holland.)

Yes, I think you're right about that.
But wouldn't you think that in 1932 they could travel freely from Germany to Holland, without even saying that they might possibly be staying there long-term? Especially as they were not Germans but Austrians.
And at what point -- how long after arrival in Cologne -- would one have to be "gemeldet"? Or is it impossible to guess what the regulations might have been in 1932? (I've no idea what they are now.)
Edit: I haven't yet had a chance to look at ## 9 and 10.
