FRIEDLAND From Bobruisk #general

Samuel Gelfand
 

Greetings,

Harry Lionel FRIEDLAND was born in 1910, probably in Durban SA, died on
August 10, 1989 and is buried in Redhill Cemetery, Durban. The
inscription on his tombstone reads "Zvi Aryeh Lieb ben Velvel (Wolf ?)
His father and another sibling emigrated >from Bobruisk Belarus,
probably between 1900-1910. I have searched SA Jewish Rootsbank and
Jewish Gen but lack adequate confirmatory evidence to connect them to
my Bobruisk FRIEDLAND(ER) ancestry.

How can I go about obtaining a copy of Harry FRIEDLAND's birth
certificate and documents relating to to his father's immigration and
naturalization?

Re: Seeking middle name in Hebrew #general

Louis Kessler
 

I disagree.

Although "Harry" could be an "Aharon", that is covered by "Albert".

My suggestion is "Tzvi", the Yiddish equivalent of which, is "Hersh"

From: sprintmail.com jewishgen@lyris.jewishgen.org
The Hebrew name Aharon was often the basis for the Americanized names of
Harry and Herbert, using the letters "har".

Any info about M. STRUTIN who resided in Kishinev in 1939 would be

Any knowledgeable people on birth certificates and adopted children.

A child is born - is there always a birth certificate?

Adopted at birth - is there an adopted birth certificate?

Child adopted at age 10 - is there a new birth certificate
with the adopted name?

Can the now adult child get her original birth certificate?
That depends on the country.

In countries of original French law, usually those that were
occupied by Napoleon, there are no birth certificates, just
entries in the official register, he called "état civil",
over here translated as "burgelijke stand".

To me it seeme strange that a birth certificate could contain
anything but the intended truth, as it would not be a
birth certificate in the strict sense, would it?

Trudy Barch asked the following regarding birth certificates and
adopted children:

A child is born - is there always a birth certificate?
Adopted at birth - is there an adopted birth certificate?
Child adopted at age 10 - is there a new birth certificate with
the adopted name?
Can the now adult child get her original birth certificate?
We need to know where the child was born, when, where the adoption
took place & when, and any other information that you can provide.

In New York State, there was and still is, a registration of birth
which leads to a birth certificate.

At the time of adoption (no matter what age of the child), the same
registration and birth certificate would be amended to reflect the
adopting parents names & any name change for the child. The
original birth file is "sealed" unless the adopting parent(s) request
the records stay opened. They are not automatically left opened.

Each state has its own rules concerning birth registrations and
adoptions. We really need more information in order to assist you.

contemporary census figures for Jews living in Germany? #germany

naomi rosenthal <naomiro999@...>
 

I read an online article recently which erroneously claimed that one of the last, if not the
last, Holocaust survivors living in Germany had died. I know this is not correct, as my
97-year old mother still lives in Germany in an elder home, and when I go visit her
during summers, I see many survivors in the dining room, with the tattooed numbers
showing on their short-sleeved arms. My mother's cousin, who survived over 5 years
in concentration camps, lives in Germany too.

Are there any sources for the number of contemporary Jewish residents of Germany,
or German cities, or other European countries?

The article also mentioned that many Jews are shocked that some Jews would go
back to live there. My parents, both German Jews who fled to Palestine in the 1930s
and lost many family members, moved back to Germany in the 1970s. They
considered Germany to be their rightful home, and said that Jews going back to
Germany was one way of showing that Hitler had lost.
