You will need to use the "Report to Moderator " button and ask for the title to be changed as you can only modify your post within 24 hours of posting. It would attract more attention with a title change.

Hi,

I can normally have a good go at this sort of thing, but the handwriting in this one has me beat.  :-[

Hopefully one of the experts will see this thread (which is why I am answering, so that it gets pushed up a bit  ;)).

Best regards,
Karen

Thanks, Peonie, thanks, Dave!

Is it Bäumel or Räumel?!  :o I can't help thinking it looks more like an "R"... (It's not like the "B" in "Berlin"...)

As I said, I have trouble with the handwriting, but I'm happy to have a go at translating Peonie's transcription. :)

Here we go:

Berlin, 22nd October 1912

Before the undersigned registrar appeared today, the personage identified through a Quittungskarte (a kind of insurance card),
Auguste Schulz, unmarried Sortiererin (sorter)
resident in Berlin Griebenowstraße 2,
and reported that the Arbeitermeisterin (some kind of senior worker?  :() Karoline
Friederike Schulz born
(Räumel/Bäumel),
76 years old, Protestant religion,
resident in Berlin, Griebenowstraße 2,
born in Kalkberg-Rüdersdorf, district Nieder
Barnim, daughter

of the deceased - most recently in Kalkberg-
Rüdersdorf resident - married couple Räumel/Bäumel, employed,
further details unknown
had died in Berlin Griebenowstraße 2 in her presence,
on the twenty-first of October
of the year one thousand nine hundred and twelve,
at ten-thirty in the afternoon


Read aloud, approved and signed 
Auguste Schulz
The registrar, Driefemann

******************

I have left the wording more or less as it was on purpose.

I am a wee bit confused, as I don't understand why reference is made to the parents of the deceased, seeing as she was 76 years old. But maybe that was normal.  :(

Whatever. It sounds as though Auguste Schulz (maybe Karoline's daughter?) appeared before the registrar to report that Karoline had died in her presence.

I hope this helps!

Best regards,
Karen

I think it's just that the pre-printed form has ___mittags in it, so that the registrar just has to fill in "vor" or "nach". They didn't bother with evening.  ;D
