Many marriages took place in the DP camps. In these cases, the registrars were officially supposed to fill out another card for the wife with her new family name. A reference card would then be created pointing from the woman’s maiden name to married name.
Children born in the DP camps also received a DP 2 card. This field was to be used to write the parents’ place of residence, occupation and registration number as well as the hour of the child’s birth. When newborns were registered, the registrars also issued three DP 2 cards instead of just two. The third card was given to the parents so that, after repatriation, they had the evidence they needed to apply for official papers for their child in their country of origin.
