Hallo Jan,

I've been researching the Rollmann (aka Rolf bey der Hake), Heese,
Hinkenberens, and Nedermeyer, families with Courtenay, and there is a strong
possibility that it is Ludwig Heese. The document in question is the
Marriage of Carol Nedermeyer and Catherine Rollmann nata Hinkenberens who's
daughter, Christine married Ludwig Heese.

Dear Courtney,

could it be Ludwig Heese? (Albertus Wilhelmus Ludovicus Heese)

Betreff: [OL] How to decipher old handwriting?

Hallo List,

We need some assistance in reading old handwriting from late 1700s and early

1800s church records.

There is a first letter of a word that looks like a 2 in modern handwriting.

"Ludovicus de Heise Wa??is (or in)  im gu(or gri)unreadable von 2umbarland."

(Or what looks to be barland - it may be barlant or barlaut.)

Do any of you have an idea about that 2 looking letter?  The 2 has a curl on

the top if that helps.  Also, in the old handwriting, was the overstrike
the letter u as common as it is today?

Thanks for any assistance.
