My grandmother name was Maria Johanna Mariot born in Metz, Moselle 1889
If anyone has any info, please email me @ tmays000@centurytel.net
Since I am now in my 70, I would love to leave this info for my great grandchildrens

Thank you so much.

Je fais un arbre de la famille mais j'ai été incapable de trouver des infos sur mon grand-prère.
 il s'appelait Auguste Johann Martin né l'a Thionvile vers 1884, marié a Maria Johanna Mariot né, je pense a Metz en 1885.
Si vous avez des infos, s'il vous plait, repondre à ce message.
Merci d'avance
Therese

Diedenhofen is Thionville, same city. Between 1870 and 1918 it was German, so not sure if you can have this info from Thionville.

In the online archives, you can access to the global list of decades ("tables decennales"):

I think it would be interesting for you to directly call the townhall of Thionville and ask them if they have the original certificates from that period or if you need to ask in Germany.

Thank you, I did get in touch with Thionvile but they were unable to find anything on my grandfather during that period.

Good morning Therese
Please find page 613 of the "Table décennale de Thionville". abstract for 1884, supposed birth year of your grand-father.  No Martin Auguste Johan is found
I propose to help, but could you please inform about the last "official document"  that you have , such as wedding certificate of your grand-parents, that could give information about the birth, the village and the parents of your grand father.
I looked at you family tree and you weren't sure of the birth date of you grand-mother (written ca 1885). I found her birth record. So you can update your tree. and you can see partial origin of Maria Johanna.
Regards

PS. If you have big document (>6 Mo), or prefer direct communication for more privacy, please use mail from Geneanet, with Orange38 link

Good morning again Therese
From the previous birth record of your grandmother Mariot Maria Johanna on 31st December 1889, it seems that her mother Louise Mariot was not married.
Thanks God she kept the baby and you are here!
On this document, one can read the names of her parents. Johann (Jean) MARIOT and Johanna (Jeanne) LAMIABLE.
I guessed then that she could be a young girl, and looked for birth record of Louise MARIOT, around 20 years before 1889, ie before 1869, in the same town of Metz, and I found it on 30th April 1867  (act n°416). She was born in rue Saint Georges in Metz at 9 AM. There is the signature of your great-great grandfather
------------------------------------
We get more information about the parents, now. ie:
* Jean MARIOT 45 y/o in 1867 (then born around 1822) , (daily) worker, born in Sénezergues (département of CANTAL in the center of France); this village houses an  interesting medieval castle : https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chateau_de_Réghaud
* Jeanne LAMIABLE, 32 y/o (then born around 1835), vigneronne (wine producer), born in Scy (département of MOSELLE, same as Metz), very old village https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scy-Chazelles
You have now more links for the Mariot and Lamiable side and with some chance, back to the 16th century.
--------------------------
Back to the Martin side, it could be interesting to look for military documents, either in France or in Germany (as Lorraine was occupied from 1871 to 1914); but the wedding of your grand-parents should be found before
