+5 votes

A non-member posted THIS yesterday.  He just sent me the image, which I graphically enhanced and uploaded HERE.  It needs handwriting expertise and knowledge of German to interpret it fully.

Contact information for the person who has it and is offering to give it to a relative is included on the image page.

The Geburtsschein (birth certificate) reads:

Elsa Katharina Hofmann born 4 April 1904 in Stuttgart.

Parents:  father-- Jakob Friedrich Hofmann (a carpenter) and mother-- Elisabetha Christina gebohren (maiden name) Lanwald

The birth was officially recognized with the document on 4 February 1924 in Stuttgart.  (When the government ordered an official document to be created, births were registered later.)

Stuttgart, Germany is a large city (Ort) in southern Germany and is part of Schwaben land.  Each city has its own government with its own archives and city registration offices.  Even today when anyone moves from one city to another they must register with the city authorities.

WOW - you're fast and very thorough, Th!!!  Thank you very much.  Now all we need is for a relative to find it here.

Now I'm going to change the question to add the name and birth date, hoping to get attention from someone who is related or knows of her family.
Thank you very much, the script writing is hard for me to see. I will try to research the names.
