The last name of the bride on the November 11, 1721 marriage record in Frankenthal looks like Breunichin. Does anyone know where "Beck" came from?
posted by Ann Risso
The word before her given name looks like it could be "Witwe" (Widow). Just a shot in the dark, but there could be another marriage record for her somewhere. She would have been known by the female version of her deceased husband's last name.

Ah ha. Smart. I haven't found another marriage yet but that would make sense. Thank you!

UNKNOWN-258091 and Beck-18 appear to represent the same person because: These seem to clearly represent the same person. Their sons Philip Jacob and Jacob also need to be merged.
posted by Dave Rutherford
Beck-61 and Beck-18 appear to represent the same person because: Same husband; same birth day/month; birth year needs resolving.
