Thank you to those of you who very kindly responded to my posting,
here is the dilemma. I am copying you all. The picture attached shows
left to right:
My Grandfather born 1878; My Great Grandmother born 1850; #1 of 3
smaller children; My Great Aunt born 1876; #2 of 3 smaller children;
My Great Grandfather born 1841; #3 of 3 smaller children; My Great
Aunt born 1874. I knew all three of the older ones who died in England
in the 40’s and 50’s after the war.
The younger three were born in 1879, 1882 & 1885 respectively. The
youngest of them, a girl, died in Chile in 1846 and I am in contact
with her Grandson so know her facts for sure. She is presumably #3 of
the younger children. The other two died before the war, one in 1907
and the other in 1923. The Birth Certificate of Ernst is attached as
is the death certificate.
Sorry, but the birth certificate clearly says "Ernst" and "Kind
maennlichen Geschlechts" (i.e. "child of the male sex"). The registrar
certainly wrote correctly what they told him. I originally thought it
would be a hand-written note on the back of a photograph.
