Casper's Birth Entry

This is an excerpt of the Enger parish church records of 1789:

Take a closer at entry No. 126. Can you read it?

It's Casper Henrich Niemeyer's birth entry. He was born July 17, 1789 and baptized two days later.

Honestly, there are handwritings I enjoy reading. This is definetely not one of them...


  1. I have a hard time reading the writing on my grandmothers birth certificate. It is written in Sutterlin script. She was born in 1900 and had saved the original document.

  2. Claudia, send me a picture of the entry and I'll try! Reading Sütterlin is fun! (A lot more fun than actually writing it...)

  3. Danke Angela, I will get to that after Christmas.

    1. If you're thinking of Johanne Marie Anna Bartls' christening certificate on your blog - I can read it completely. Born April 24, 1900, christened June 3, 1900, parents: Drechsler (turner) Daniel Zacharias Johannes Bartels and his wife Anna Marie née Korbach in Celle-Blumlage, godmothers: wife Johanne Bartels in Celle and the unmarried Anna Korbach in Jena.
      Have a wonderful christmas time!
