JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen "Forged" signatures in birth records? #general


Sue Clamp <clamp@...>
 

The translation of a collection of birth records >from Serock have revealed
that the documents record the births of children of two different couples
- Itsek and Etka ROZENBERG, and Iosek and Sura Ryfka ROZENBERG. The
records were written sequentially on two dates in 1875 and 1878. All the
records >from the 1875 group appear to have been signed by the same person,
and likewise the records >from 1878, albeit by a different hand. It seems
that the signatures on at least some, if not all, of the records have
therefore been signed on behalf of the father. Does anyone know if this
was common practice?
The signatures can be seen at
