German to English translation again
« on: Tuesday 04 June 19 05:52 BST (UK) »
Am trying to decipher mainly this 1865 Marriage Certificate.
Dorothea was  sister of my person of interest -- interest in the occupations of the
Bride's father -- Sonditur or Conditur?  Tried Google translator German to English, it gave me back the same spelling for English?
Sorry DaveCapps to ask again.

Hi cc,

It's Konditor - confectioner/pastry chef, creator of yummy things.  :D

Edit: If you take a look here
https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deutsche_Kurrentschrift
you can see examples of the old German handwriting forms.

It is strange that he uses mainly Kurrent, but pops in a somewhat Gotisk "K" for the 2 x Konditor. The "K" in Königreich is completely different.

So did the groom fall in love with the boss' daughter..?!  ;D

Best regards,
Karen

I meant to mention something earlier: Why on earth would the groom be called Phillip Jacob Phillip?!  ???
