Re: How to make sense of two death records that don't make sense to me #germany

Stephen Weinstein

She died, was reincarnated, and died again.  I'm kidding.  Seriously:

This may mean that her death was falsely reported when she was still alive (in 1890), perhaps either so her husband could marry someone else or so that her heirs could take her assets.  And then reported a second time when she really did die (in 1901).

Or that the first report (in 1890) is true and then one of her heirs falsely reported that she was a widow who died later (in 1901) so that they could "inherit" the property of the man reported to her husband.

Or there could be a legitimate explanation.
