In the index of French naturalisations, there is a Bernard
SCHREIBMANN, born in Gitomir (Russia) on 12 January 1871. He was
naturalised on 8 September 1907, along with a lady whose maiden name
was SCHWARTZBERG (the married women's first name is never written in
that index) born in Grabova (Russia) on 15 September 1877. He may be
the Bernard you are looking for, but it's not sure. As for his
daughter, without any information, it's difficult to find her name in
the lists of deportees, especially if she was married. In the lists
of deportation there were three women who could match with Bernard's
age : Bruh SCHREIBMANN (born in 1909, and Odette SCHREIBMANN born in
1911. The name SCHREIBMANN is not very common in France : there are
only two of them in the telephone directory. You are right : there is
no French national birth (or death) registry. You need to know the
town where the person you are looking for died.

Bernard Shrybman, born to Hinda and Yehuda Leyb Shrybman, emigrated >from
Ukraine (probably near Zhitomyr) to Paris in approximately 1910,
together with brother Charles (Yehoshua); they were soon followed by
sister Rachel. I have "mapped" the families of Charles and Rachel but
hit a wall on Bernard.

He allegedly married Berthe, and had two sons and a daughter, probably
in or near Paris. His son Emile was probably born approximately
1915-1925, and lived in Paris as an adult. Emile's address in the 50s
was 126 Rue de Flandres, Paris, 19th arondissement. He . His wife was
probably a singer - opera and/or theatre; her name sounded like Galeau.
I believe they had one son.

Bernard's other son, name unknown, lived in Africa for a while as an
adult before returning to France. He had at least two children (unknown
genders, names, birthdates, country of birth). Wife's name unknown.

About Bernard's daughter I have almost no information, except that she
was very likely captured by the Vichy/Nazis and did not survive the war.

I would be very grateful for any information on this family, or for any
tips on how to proceed. My searches of French sites have provided no
evidence of any Shrybman. I have heard that there is no French national
birth registry. I would appreciate any guidance on how to search (or
request a search) of Shrybman, Shrybman, Schreibman, etc., birth
records, probably in Paris. Ditto for information on French citizens
born abroad (Africa)? And death records in Paris?
