This is a baptism certificate (Tauf-Schein) for Katharina Zimmermann, who was born on April 15, 1923, in Frankfurt an der Oder, Germany (a displaced persons camp for many Volga Germans). Katharina was also baptized in Frankfurt an der Oder on April 29, 1923. The baptism certificate shown here is a copy made by Rev. Elias Hergert, pastor of St. Pauls church in Portland. Her parents were Peter Zimmermann (believed to be the person in the photo attached to the certificate) and Katharina Zimmermann (née Schwartz).
