TWO LAST NAME SPELLINGS ON BIRTH CERTIFICATE #general


Joan Parker
 

On my birth certificate I am listed as Joan Constance PINCUS, a common mistake from PINKUS. My mother correctly is listed as Selma GOLDBERG and my father as Ernest PINKUS, which is the correct spelling from  manifests, weddings, censuses and naturalization papers.   Chances the two spellings might not have caused any problems other than when registering for school or maybe getting a passport.  Luckily in 1933 Dad legally changed our name from Pinkus to PARKER.
Stay well and be safe,
