Cert. No. 886
Birth Record-Erich Esriel Friedemann

A full translation would be greatly appreciated. Am looking for any names, dates, locations of Erich's parents, and any other relatives that might be listed.

From age one, Erich was apparently raised by his father's sister Lina Friedemann. This is the first record found of his birth. The English summary on Ancestry gives his parents' names as Max Samuel Friedemann and Sophie Friedemann. And it appears that Sophie's maiden name was Zielinski? which would match with family recollections.

Thank you very much,
Karen Gregar Schneider

the town of the wedding will most likely be "Oranienburg" north-west of Berlin.

Regards, C.
