I’m trying to track down my grandfather who came to NZ in the 1950’s and was very secretive about his life/family before NZ.
I have no idea where he was born but I believe he could have been born in Russia or Serbia.
He told my father one story that he had to leave Russia because of the KGB killing everyone, so he left and went to Serbia and when he got there he apparently made up a fake last name in the fear that the KGB would come looking for him and kill him.
From Serbia he then went to Braila Romanian and meet my Grandmother and married, they then came to NZ with her mother Cristina Parau.
Later on they had two sons (1952 and 1953) and a daughter. I’m unsure to when the daughter was born but after she was born she shortly died afterwards of natural causes.
I have some of my Grandmothers documents and there are many different spellings of first names and last names.
Does anyone know how I could find a birth record for my grandfather?
