Need help locating a Birth certificate #germany

Hello German Jewish SIG,

I would like to have a copy of my fathers birth certificate and
German passport. Robert Eugen Nathan was born in Frankfurt on Dec 11
1911. He immigrated >from Antwerp, Belgium on the ship Pennland, and
arrived in New York City on June 7, 1937. Any suggestions?

Thanks, Rob Nathan Seattle, WA robert.nathan@...

Since NATHAN left >from Antwerp he must have been registered there and there
should be information about him in the Forerigners files in the Antwerp
archives. I will look it up later in the day. It's only 10 in the morning
here.

As your father was not born in Belgium, there possibly is a Belgian
police file on him. You could enquire at the Belgian National Archives
archives.generales@... for this file.

This will not provide you with the birth Certificate or passport
that you seek, but will have interesting information in it.
The file on my father was indeed interesting.

I looked at the Antwerp immigration records, he is not listed. He must have
come to Antwerpen only to board the Red StarLine vessel Pennland. There
should be passenger records at the Ellis Island site. Robert writes that his
father was born in Frankfurt but does not say or does not know if it is
Frankfurt Main or Frankfurt Oder. The civil records at his exact birth place
should have his birth certificate.

I just looked at Ellis Island, his arrival is listed there. I could not view
the details, it's a long time since I used the site and the terms are
changed. Someone more knowlegeable should find more. I did my best.

MOD NOTE: It is most likely Frankfurt a/M not Oder

Hello Robert,

Re: Need help locating a Birth certificate
I would like to have a copy of my fathers birth certificate and
German passport. Robert Eugen Nathan was born in Frankfurt on Dec 11, 1911.

address to Frankfurt Standesamt (civil records office):

mailto:verwaltung.amt34@...

Ask for a photocopy of the birth record.

I don't think that a passport will be kept in the archives. For further
information about your family address to the archives of Frankfurt city:

mailto:info.amt47@...

Best regards
