Could be Dave. Thanks!! You're just scrolling through the Roschutz book?

That seems like something I should be doing!

Hi Dave. It seems likely that Bertha is the daughter of the Auguste I am researching. I found and can read most of the record. But I'm stuck on the word I've circled. It looks like Auguste's surname is spelled two ways and the circled word explains this. Can you please decipher it? Thanks!!

I plan to look into the other Schornstadt individuals I found on the Pomorskie Indeksy site but one thing at a time!! Thanks for that link though, excellent resource!!

unverehlichte Auguste Schornstädt
/ anders Schornstaedt

anders = otherwise

The Umlauts in German: Ä, Ö, Ü
can also be written as  Ä=AE, Ö=OE, Ü=UE

Thanks Dave!! We were so close!! We had figured out a_d_r_ but we could not complete the puzzle! That makes perfect sense though. We are very familiar with the ae Umlaut variation.

I found individuals on the Pomorskie Indeksy site using both variants of the surname.
