Brooklyn, Kings county, New York vital records:


On site search at the New York City Municipal Archives at 31 Chambers Street, New York, New York, October 2004.  This search was limited to Brooklyn to develop information on the Brooklyn Koberstein family.  There may be others in New York City but I didn't have time for a search of all of the city.

(1) From this point on in the Births I didn't record similar names such as Kober, Kobbe etc. due to constraints of time.

(2) Expected Lillian as given in the database (which is primarily from the census records), but didn't find.

* Certificate number in the index points to the wrong certificate.

** Had copies of these certificates made.

* Didn't order certificate to to cost and lack of time.

** Had copies of these certificates made.

The index covers years earlier than1889 but I didn't have time to search them.

(1) This Mary is most likely a Koberstein which was miss spelled to Kobelstein (perhaps in the index only as others were), but not Mary Koberstein's of the right calculated age are in the data base.  Furthermore no connection is deducible.

(2) This Catherine is most likely a Koberstein which was hard to read in the index.  No Catherine of the right calculated age is in the data base.  Furthermore no connection is deducible.

n.r.  Not readable;  n.c.  Not clear

I didn't have the time to look up the certificates of the similar sounding names to see if they were Koberstein or part of Koberstein family but changed names.
