Emma Leier's Birth Certificate

Emma Leier's Birth Certificate

State of New York - Kings County - Town of Gravesend

Name of child: Emma Leir

White female, born on Mch 4th 1891

Place of birth: Gravesend near C. I. Ave

Name of father: Larry Leir

Name of mother: Amelia Newvalski

Birthplace of father: Germany; age: 28; occupation: Laborer

Birthplace of mother: Germany; age: 25

Number of this mother's previous children: Four
How many of them now living: Four *

Name and address of Medical Attendant, or other Authorized person, in own handwriting: Louisa Newvalski, Parkville

Date of this return: April 4th 1891

* Since Emma is the fifth child born to the couple, after Louisa (1884), William (1886), Amelia (1889), and Bertha (1890), and all five are alive at this point, then this makes no sense. The same problem exists on Bertha's birth certificate. The information appears to have been entered on this certificate by Louisa Newvalski, Emma's grandmother.

And then there is the date of birth: Mch 4th. I'm interpreting this as March 4th. I don't know why, therefore, that the certificate wasn't prepared until April 4th.

C. I. Ave is Coney Island Avenue.
