I got 2 male GSD pups from a family member. The father is akc registered and the mother is also AKC but he never registered her to his name. He transfered the registration after the litter was born and now akc is not letting me register mine. The previous owner of the damn is Kimberly Klaitz ..I am trying to locate this individual so i can get these documents signed from akc . Located in NJ area the dam's registration number DN52687005

Your brother screwed up by breeding and whelping a litter before he'd registered the mother of the pups in his own name, frankly, and the previous owner has zero obligation to you or him to sign off on any additional paperwork at this point, so don't be surprised if she refuses to do so even if you manage to reach her. She wasn't the breeder of the litter, after all, and she didn't derive any benefit from the breeding, so there's really nothing you can do if she says no.
I do sincerely wish you luck, but keep in mind that unless you have your heart set on showing your dogs in conformation classes or using them as stud dogs, whether or not they're registered is of little importance. Given that your brother didn't bother to register the female in his name before the pups were born, I'm going to guess he probably didn't have the hips and elbows of the male or the female x-rayed and graded by OFA or PennHIP. If that's the case, then I would hope you aren't seeking the registration for your dogs so you can use them as studs, because breeding German Shepherds which have not received certification of sound hips and elbows is irresponsible, and unnecessary given the sheer number of dogs available that do have such certification.
