No. 11 Nicolas Ahein and Mararehe Feijen??  Marriage document.

I've located the bride and grooms there a place that:

 lists parents of bride and groom

date location


I'd like a basic translation but being able to identify the most important areas to search would be a great help too.  I speak some German and have been able to identify a few words so if I can focus my attention on specific areas I might need fewer translations.

Thanks for all you do.

Nicolas was born 1791, not 1801.

The bride is Marguerithe.

The document does not seem to be relevant to Joan Alexander ... possible ancestors?
You're right .

George KEMP I think
