My translation of the death record of Anna Koenig Linde of Freienwalde, Pomerania.

Anna is my 4G-grandmother on my maternal grandmother’s side. She was born 6 Jun 1762, probably in Freienwalde, which is now Chociwel, Poland. She died in Freienwalde on 23 Dec 1827. Translating her death record is my way of keeping up my skills from my SLIG 2019 German class. I found this record at FamilySearch’s “Germany, Prussia, Pomerania. Kirchenbücher, 1544-1945” database, image 56 of 657.

The twenty-third December about 8:45 in the morning, died of a tumor Anna Regina Koenig / widow Linde, the deceased master clothmaker / Johann Gottlieb Linde surviving wife / 65 years 6 months and 17 days old and was on the / twenty-sixth of the same month buried. Her survivors 2 sons and 1 daughter.

I’m very happy that I got Tuchmachermeister right. And I found another example of ejusd., which is the Latin abbreviation for “of the same.”

Thanks, FamilySearch, for digitizing my great-great-great-great grandmother Anna Koenig Linde’s death record.  And now I’m just as excited that I could translate it. (As always, corrections from readers gratefully received.)

And now it’s almost time for the International German Genealogy Conference in Sacramento. Will I see you there this year?
