I am trying to solve a mystery about a family >from Landau. I found an
article in an old newspaper. Could the following Old German: "seiner allda
verlebten Ehefrau" mean "his late beloved wife". I cannot find the word
allda in any dictionary.


The phrase means: His here deceased wife

In other terms, it means that the his wife is deceased and that she died in
the location alluded to in the text.
