Thank you for these amazing translations! I never dreamed so much additional information was hidden in those records, such as Wendtlandt being an organist, the ringing of the bells (I was a music major and enjoyed those bits of information), and the emergency baptism. These are examples of facts and events that make a family story real – and I know that my husband’s family will be surprised and glad to learn of them.
I now realize how much I’m missing when I look at these old records. Ancestry offers minimal translations, and I’ve learned a few words to help me along, but there’s no telling what else I don’t know about these people.
You made our day, Katherine! My husband and I are most grateful for your help.
