Hi Steve,

While working on Holland's largest transcription project I came across the name of Bellina Davidoff. It was in a sub-project for the archives of the city of Amsterdam. I was not sure actually whether the handwritten document said Bellina or Rellina, so I tried to find more information. Than I came across this discussion.
From the register called "overgenomen delen" I can give you the following information, which is not yet available online since the project has started a few weeks ago. Later you will be able to find the information at through the currently built index. The website is available in english.

The register "overgenomen delen" says:
(all dates are day.month.year and Parijs is Paris, France)

Alexander Davidoff born 23.12.1869 in Yorson, prof: kleermaker (=taylor)
Sara Pedkowitz born 21.11.1870 Kischuif

Bellina born 29.7.1888 Parijs
Eduard born 10.8.1890 Amsterdam
Philippe born 15.3.1892 Parijs
Henri born 16.8.1893 Parijs

The family registered in Amsterdam on 4.6.1894 with a Paris police card (probably normal registration card). On 9.6.1894 they left for Rotterdam. The adress is (unreadable letter, probably short for a word like "West") Manegestraat 8. The extra info given says Ring 3 305/200. I don't know what this means.

The information in these registers is not always absolutely correct. This goes especially for the names of cities and villages in far away countries. Unfortunately it doesn't say where Yorson and Kischuif are, but it was probably written down as it sounded.

Some more information can be found in Familysearch:

Birth of Eduard is in Amsterdam. Year 1890 Register 7, back of page 153.
In this birth record it says that his father's name is Abraham Davide and mother's name Sara Pesschovisch. They lived in Amsterdam Fokke Simonszstraat no. 38. Two witnesses signed in the birth register:
Hermanus Zwarts, taylor age 29, living at the same address, and Jan Davide age 26 taylor, living at no. 16.
So, the jewish name of father seems to be Abraham. His signature says "A. Davide".

If interested: you may want to take a look at the "beeldbank" (images) of the stadsarchief Amsterdam for an impression of the street they lived in.
