Hi -- I am a new member
I would like to find a birth certificate for my grandfather, David John (or
Jacob) DORANZ or any information on the DORANZ family. I do not know in
what city in Alsace-Lorraine he was born. The family did identify as
German. David was born around 1854.
His father's name was Jacob DORANZ . However, when Jacob died in a nursing
home in New York City in 1911 it was spelled DORENS. It was spelled as
DORANZ on his tombstone. I think David DORANZ' mother was Ruth KRUEGER.
I have a lot more information but don't know if it is relevant.
Thank you very much in advance.
