The Summer 2007, Catalog XIV,of Austin T. Miller American Antiques, Inc.,(www. usfolkart.com) as item 24 pictures a superb frakur Birth and Baptismal Certificate for Maria Schmeck, b. 6 Nov 1808 in Alsace Twp, Berks Co., PA.
Maria's parents are listed as "Johannes Schmeck and his legitimate housewife Susana, nee Heckmensen."
This fine certificate should be made known to the Schmeck family. I am scanning it in case any of the descendants might like a copy, either by email or by postal mail. Someone in the family ought to have it--it is too good to be missed by the family. It may not have extensive genealogy value, but it certainly does have a whole lot of family, historic, and folk art value.
My email address can be found by clicking on my underlined name above. Please respond by emailing me directly and not by posting a reply on this genforum site, which I might not see.
If it were a certificate of a Pease family member, I'd certainly want someone to do the same for me.
Bill Pease, Lancaster, PA
