    The Birthday list I found is written in German Sutterlin script. It was written probably in the late 1920’s when my grandparents and mother emigrated to the USA.
    It tool a long time to transcribe it but it gave amazing information.

    My father had saved it in a file cabinet in his home and I found it after his death
