Email me an image, I'll try. I dont' know a lot of German, but can read some of the characters.  No guarantees, though.  tbredehoft (at)


On second thought, send it to Eva-Maria, below.

I can also serve as a back up to deciphering in particular old German church records.

You can also copy and paste it into Google Translate:

I don't know if that works on images, though.  Also, these are machine translations, and they can be pretty terrible!  I have a distant ancestor who was imprisoned for theft.  Something to do with a parakeet!  Turns out the parakeet referred to an official.  Wonder if that is kind of like a Cardinal in the church!

Heh heh, Lana... you clearly have NOT seen old German church records. For example:

Catharina Dern birth record


Oh, my!  It wouldn't even do any good to know German on that one!

Besides that, hasn't German changed through the generations too?  Like trying to decipher old English.
