JewishGen Discussion Group #JewishGen Re: Male as the first name on a Certificate #general

Judith Cohen <judith.cohen@...>

I was born in a Brooklyn hospital in 1970 and my birth certificate says Female,
there was an addendum/change on the back of the original certificate with my actual
name. It looks like a stamp that was then filled in with the name and date and
signature, which was just shy of a month after I was born.

I just want to clarify that if a name has not been chosen, as was in the case on
my father's birth certificate, the first name was Male (or Female).
