From: 123jcj@...
Can anyone translate for me a phrase >from German, I think it's an older form of
German. The phrase is "und im Jahre 5510 das Beitliche fegnete" or possibly
"Veitliche jegnete".
The phrase probably is: "und im Jahre 5510 das Weltliche/Zeitliche segnete"
which is "passed away in the year 5510".

The f/s confusion is probably due to the f and initial s looking very similar in
Gothic script, this is possibly also so between the W and the B ..., I cannot
imagine the Gothic Z being mistaken for a B, hope that helps
