Joyaa Antares

Hi All,
A cousin of mine is trying to locate four German birth certificates but appears to have hit a brick wall.  They are for his parents and his paternal grandparents.  Please can you help me to locate them?
1. Father: "Walter Dagobert COHN"; my cousin believes he was born on 3rd March 1910 in Teltow.
2. Mother: "Elsa SIDERSKY"; my cousin believes she was born on 23rd June 1907 in Berlin.
3. Paternal grandfather: "Moritz COHN"; my cousin believes he was born on 19th July 1880 at Prossken (or Prostken)  district of Lyck.  He was the son of merchant Salomon COHN and Johanna nee KAMNITZER, who in 1907 were resident in Velten, District Osthavelland. 
4. Paternal grandmother: "Hedwig BUKOFZER"; my cousin believes she was born on 24th April 1884 in Gostoczyn (or Gostrozyn) district Tuchel. She was the daughter of Louis BUKOFZER and Berta nee COHN, who in 1907 was resident in Liebenau, district Tuchel.
Very many thanks,

Just a short remark to 3 and 4:
3: The rural community Prostken belonged to the civil registry office Ostrokollen. The documents of Ostrokollen were unfortunately lost in the war. They can be found neither in Polish archives nor in Berlin.

4.The rural community Gostoczyn (later renamed in :Liebenau) belonged to the civil registry office Kamnitz. The documents are stored in the Archive in Bydgoszcz (Archiwum Państwowe w Bydgoszczy), inventory: Standesamt Kamnitz, Email: kancelaria@...

I indexed many jewish records in Tuchola and the area. My grandmother's line is from there.

BUKOFZER is a common name in that area that is now Poland but used to be Prussia.
You can search the archive online here:
Good luck!

My father Helmut/Henry dobrin was born in Tuchola in 1921.  His mother Rosa Bukofzer was born in 1885 in nearby Schlochau.  Can we talk?
