Re: Seeking Parents Names on New York City Birth Certificate #records #usa

You can try the 1930, 1940 and 1950 US
Censuses to get their names. Your school records would have your parents names.
Your marriage certificate might have it?

Just a few ideas I can think of offhand.

Dear JewishGeners,

I have applied for German citizenship under “Application A — for naturalization of persons living abroad pursuant to Article 116 (2), first sentence, of the Basic Law (GG).” As a Jew, my father had his citizenship revoked before/during World War II, and my grandparents were killed in the Shoah.

To my surprise, my application can’t go through because my New York City birth certificate does not list my parents’ names. Is there another official record that does include that information? I have used my official NY birth certificate my entire lifetime.

With thanks,
