Re: Warsaw birth record - why registered 3 months late? #warsaw

Deborah Blinder

You don't say where (or when) your great aunt was born. If she was born in a smaller town near Warsaw, someone would have had to travel to Warsaw to register the birth, which may account for the delay.

My grandmother's birth (near Lodz) was not registered until she was 6 or 7 years old. Unlike today in the United States, there apparently was no requirement in Poland in the late 1800s, when my grandmother was born, for civil birth records to be registered immediately.
