Birth Certificate Problem

Czernowitzers… I am in contact with a fellow named Alejandro Kinsbrunner whose grandfather was born in Czernowitz in 1901. Indeed his gf’s birth record has been transcribed and is available through Daniel Horowitz’s database.

The problem is that my correspondent is trying to re-establish his Austrian citizenship, and the Austrian authorities will only take certified proof that the proper documentation exists. He has in his possession a copy 1938 document from the then Romanian govt. to that effect which can’t be used as it is not an ‘original’. I have posted this document on the Blog at: http://ehpes.com/blog1/?p=8321
Is there any way to get an official document from either the Archives or the municipal government to the effect that 1901 birth of this fellow’s gf was properly registered in 1901?

It seems to me likely that others have run into similar problems — so, what to do?
