Hermann Thiessen (1919-) was born in Stutthof-Stöbuderkampe, West Prussia to Hermann Thiessen (1888-1918) and Katharina Bench (1889-1945). He married Liesbeth Maekelborger (1919-) in 1942. They had three children between 1944 and 1952. In April 1945 the family fled from their homeland via the Baltic to Denmark. Thiessen worked in various agricultural marketing occupations. Sometime after the war ended the family moved to Bugdorf, Germany. It was in Germany that he pursued his interest in archives, family history and genealogy. He compiled five family histories which include: Martin Thiehsen und seine Nachkommen 1737-1977 (1977), Bartholomaus Tiessen: 350 Jahre Familientradition (1986), Familiengeschichte der Familie Bench (1989), Peter Heydebrecht und seine Nachkommen (1990), Die Familie Mekelburger (1992).
