Birth

This is a little confusing. According to a database, Georgette was born in May 1909. That appears to be the same as her husband. It could be coincidental or there could be a mistake somewhere. I am choosing May 10, 1909 for the birthday of Georgette and her husband Alex Neufeld. It will be nice to remember them together on the same day.

Note

Per writings of sister-in-law Eva Klein, Alex was the second husband of Georgette. Georgette had divorced the first husband because he had a mistress. Eva Klein Book, p. 32.
