Adolf Hitler's half brother in 1911 census records
From the findmypast blog - "We've unearthed Adolf Hitler's half brother in our 1911 census records and his census return makes for fascinating reading. Alois Hitler Jr had a troubled childhood and is said to have had a rocky relationship with his parents. In 1910 he met Bridget Elizabeth Dowling in Dublin. Alois and Bridget eloped to London and married in June 1910. Alois' 1911 census return shows him and Bridget living at 102 Upper Stanhope Street, Toxteth Park, Liverpool. This house is reported to have been destroyed in a German air-raid on Liverpool in 1942"
