This is supposed to be the birth of Johann Jacob Asal, named after his father. Mother is Ana Maria Rozerlin (?spelling of surname)
birth 26 oct 1827, baptism 1830?
thank you in advance
Born 26th October 1827, baptised 1st November, presumably of the same year.
I think it may be a delayed entry (i.e. entered August 1830), but I can't decipher enough of it to make sure.
(In any case, most of Europe at this time believed in baptizing newborns as soon as humanly possible, so that they wouldn't die as heathens.)
If I could read it, I could translate it, but my German is too shaky to decipher it. (It's true of all handwriting that you can only read it if you already know what it says. It's especially true for That Infernal German Handwriting, because every letter in the alphabet looks identical to at least one other letter, and half the letters have two or more alternate forms.)
This type of request might be better to post in the German group;
Scroll down the page until you see the blue box marked "new discussion" then click on the arrow beside that box. You should then select the quesion option. Post your question there.
@Dlog, how do you get to that page? (I recall Brett posting about it at some point, but I can't find it.) As far as I can tell, there is no menu option that leads to that no-man's-land page.
If someone does somehow manage to land there, I don't suggest using that particular blue button. It will create a question that is not associated with any specific group, and nobody will see it.
For the record, here's what I get if I click Groups in the right-hand menu:
You first go to groups, as was suggested by you, then you select the German group then you scroll down the page until you get to the section I have pictured earlier. Then you need to click on the arrow beside the blue box and select the question option. You will then have your post in the correct place to have it answered by someone in the German community group.
could you translate more of the record
When I posted the question I thought I was on the German site. It appears to me that the page has changed. I have had difficulty finding the path to post questions on the German site.
