This and submission "Brickmann image 24_26" are the 2 sides of the Registration Card completed by the authorities in Danzig when it was part of Germany.

I would like a complete translation of both images please. Abraham and Amalia Brickmann (nee Becker) were my maternal great-grandparents. Abraham was born in Kolna (Russian Poland), but Amalia was born in Danzig. Their youngest child- my Grandma Nelly was the only one born in UK (Manchester). Consequently she does not appear on the cards but two children who died young are listed. I would be grateful for as full a translation as possible. Thank you. Stephen Brown

There are several towns in Poland called Kolmo; however, I could not find anything similar to Lamicke district.
Similarly, I cannot read where the family moved from Amsterdam, something starting with G...
10/14/2013 9:14 AM Correction:
von Amsterdam nach Hausthor 7 III
Modern spelling: Am Haustor, a street in Danzig.
It appears that Abraham left for Amsterdam when he was expelled, but Amalie either stayed back or came back to Danzig from Amsterdam.

Häckergasse should be Häkergasse.
