Re: Need assistance getting three vital records from Berlin #germany

The Düppel Center, also know as the Schlachtensee displaced persons camp, was located at Potsdamer Chaussee 87 in Berlin near the Schlachtensee lake, within the Steglitz-Zehlendorf borough of Berlin. The marriage and birth registers of the years you are looking for have not yet been transferred to the Berlin State Archives and should still be at the Steglitz-Zehlendorf civil registration office (Standesamt).

At the website of the Steglitz-Zehlendorf borough it is stated that only direct descendants have access to the records. However, according to German privacy laws, marriage records are protected for 60 years, so you should be able to obtain the marriage records. I would first contact the civil registration office at standesamt@... . The birth record is still under privacy protection.
