translation help (Lippman ELIAS, Wolf ISRAEL) #germany


Hello. Can someone please help me decipher the two death certificates
I posted on the Viewmate site (VM 14221 and VM 14222)?

One is of my great-great-great-great grandfather Lippman Elias (died 18th of
Pluviose in the year 12 of the Republic, Feb. 8, 1804). The other is
of my great-great-great-great grandfather Wolf Israel (died age 63, 3rd
of Ventose, Third Year of the Republic (Feb 21, 1795).

Both are >from Alsace -- the former >from the town of Hochfeld and the
latter >from the town of Uhrwiller.
Both are very hard to read, so much so that I am not even sure of the
language. Although this was part of France, it looks more like German,
leading me to wonder if it's Alsatian. Thank you.
