100 Year old Birth Certificate #records
On March 31th, of this year, my mother-in-law celebrated her 100th birthday. She had been born in Rotterdam, as her family, exiting their former lives in Russia, were on their way to America. One hundred years later, I placed a request, on this website, asking if anyone knew how I could obtain a copy of her original birth certificate, which she never had. By the following day, I had several wonderful suggestions on how to proceed. Piet Hoekstra, who was monitoring this site, and Mr. Freddy Walhof, of the Dutch Genealogical Society, combined to assist me in reaching the necessary municipal office, which is sending the Birth Certificate, even as I write.
Thank you to all who participated and sent your suggestions. You helped to make a 100 year old lady, (and her family), very happy.
