to JRI Poland, on Nadworna PSA AGAD Births, that I discoverd he had
two brothers and one sister, all registered in Nadworna like my father.
His siblings were Jutte born in 1894, Abe born in 1897, Jacob born in
1899. The fact that their surnames was HUBSCHMAN let to think that
there was not a civil wedding for their parents, but only a religious
one, which explains that my father wore his mother's name.

<<My father was deported in Auschwitz then in Mauthausen where he
died on February 26th 1945. Three months ago, I discovered the
documents that my father had to fill in 193O to get the French
citizenship. In these documents he specified that his father was
called PFEFFER Bernhard, and that he died on June 15th 1924. My
father wrote also that he had 2 brothers and 1 sister: PFEFFER Simon
born in 1892 tradesman in Jablonow, PFEFFER Lazar born in 1908 bank
employee, and LEITNER Dora (I imagine her maiden name to be PFEFFER)
born in 1895, married and living in Nadworna. My father, never gave
us precise informations about his family left in Galicia. It's why I
cannot find a logical link between these two different informations
which are totally incompatible. However I think that Bernhard PFEFFER
can be my paternal grandfather, because my father called one of my
two brothers (his eldest son): Bernard. Are the results on JRI
Poland absolutely reliable?...>>
