Re: 2 questions #russia #records


My maternal grandparents' first child was stillborn in 1917.  My cousin's husband found a record of this in a NYC archive, though I am not sure which one. I think it was a burial record of stillborns, as best I recall. 

You will need to determine the location of the births.  You might start with looking for where the family lived at that time. Census records may help determine both location and names. Ships' manifests may also help.  Then you can look for birth and death records in that area.  Also check cemetery records for the deceased twin, after you find at least the family's last name and location. 

Best of luck.
