ViewMate translation request – One Name in Old German Script #germany #general


Jeff Marx
 

I've posted an 1899 Altona death record, in old German script, for which I need one name deciphered.
It is the name of my 4th great-grandmother, that, up to now, has been unknown.
(I believe it will list her last name as Samuel). It is on ViewMate at the following address:

With my thanks in advance,

Hi Jeff,
your great-grangmother's first name was Rebecka and
her maiden name indeed was Samuel. It doesn't say where
she was from, but her last place of residence was the city of Kiel
on the Baltic Sea, approx. 120 K north from Altona (which is next to Hamburg)

I may add, that Moses Salomon's wife's first name was most likely not "Betty"
(compare the first capital letter with the last name Benjamin), the end to me looks more like
something like ".ettig", sorry not to be of more help.

Best regards

It's "Bettÿ", Using different forms of the same letter in a record is sometimes used for emphasis. The entire name "Benjamin" is in a modern form in order to emphasize it. We would now use italics for that purpose.

The first name is definitely Betty (y with dots: Bettÿ).
It's a mixed text from old German with Latin script.
Surnames and also place names are written in Latin script -
compare Rendsburg or Sanct Pauli.
