Literal translation from the birth certificate:

Birth - Certificate for Marguerite Philippine Clara Olm. bom in Limpertsberg* Kanton of Luxemburg on 31 * January 1882 at half pest five p.m. ) This is not part of thedocument- BKTH-CERTIFICATE ihc year one thousand eight hundred and eighty two, the first of the month Pcbruars at seven o'clock in the afternoon appeared before Us Friedrich Klein, the Mayor and Official of the Council of the Parish of RoHmgergrumL in Kanton Luxemburg. Great Dukedom Luxemburg Olm Charles twenty four years old Court-Clerk living in Limpertsberg, who introduced to Ua, a child of female gender, born yesterday at half past five p.m. in the house No/at Limpertsberg Lane, produced by him the introducer and his wife Caroline Schultx, without occupation nineteen years old and living in Limpertsberg and he declared that he wished to give her the first names Marguerite. Philippine.

Ffe Klein

The explanation follows supplied by Elodee following research in Luxembourg:

I have been at the National Archives and collected some information about the Olms. First of all, I can confirm now that there were no twins. So definitely, Marguerite Philippine Clara must be 'Gussie'. No idea why she was called Augustine instead of one of her real names, but the parents seem to have been kind of name fetishists. More about that a bit later !

For now, I'm sorry to tell you that we have to correct Gussie's birth date. Elodee, in your second mail, you had written about several documents stating 3 different dates for Augustine's birth. Today, I found the solution for this mistery ! In the ten-years tables, I found her on February 28, 1882. But the certificate that you had sent me was dated 1st of February, and the child was born 'yesterday', thus on 31st of January. In order to check that incoherence, I then searched for the certificate on the microfilm, but couldn't find it around February 1 (those certificates were written into a book, thus they are ordered invariably by date). Searching further, I found Augustine's certificate (Nr 10) between one from Feb 22 (Nr 9) and the next one from March 24 (Nr 11). Thus, the certificate is from 1st of March, Gussie is born 'yesterday' (Tuesday, Feb 28, 1882), and the officer simply had made a mistake by writing down the wrong month name. The person who drew the ten-years tables had noticed this and wrote the correct date into the table. But as the certificate is an official document, he couldn't simply correct the date in it !

First German Baptist Church

336 East 14th Street near First Avenue New York, N.Y. 10003

Organ Specifications: 336 East 14th Street and First Avenue (1869-c.1920) ► II/13 Geo. Jardine & Son (c.1869) Sixth Street near Avenue C (1866-1869) • unknown Avenue A near Second Street (1850-1866) • unknown Stanton and Essex Streets (1846-1850) • unknown

The First German Baptist Church was organized in 1846 to serve the large number of German immigrant families living in "Klein Deutschland" ("Little Germany"). For their first four years, the congregation met at Stanton and Essex Streets, and in 1850 they removed to Avenue A near Second Street, where they remained for sixteen years. Following the Civil War, as many residents and churches relocated farther uptown, First German Baptist made plans for a new church, temporarily moving to Sixth Street near Avenue C until a site was purchased on East 14th Street, the northern boundary of Klein Deutschland. In 1866, Julius Boekell designed a fanciful Romanesque-style edifice that had a gabled facade with two narrow towers and many windows. Some sources state that the new church was opened in 1869. The German congregation merged or ceased to exist sometime after 1920.
