1833 Peters Fraktur Birth Baptism Snyder Co PA Rantz


Hard to find these days, here is a pre-printed Peters, Harrisburg, PA Birth and Baptismal Certificate, Geburts und Taufschein and one of the first to be printed in color. Ca. 1830s based on latest date, but sometimes these were filled in later -- impossible to tell for sure, but since Penn township was incorporated into Snyder County, PA from Union County in 1855, it seems reasonable to assume it was pre-1855. Overall fair to good condition. Sells unframed, so you can see the edge bumps and tears. Main image is free from folds and holes, you can certainly see a bit of toning, including a smaller than dime stain on the top left box. Includes the American eagle, birds (distelfinks most likely), wreaths, angels. Measures 13x16. We confess to having a difficult time deciphering the names here. Last name of the parents seems to have been Rantz, but we can't find that one on either Union or Snyder County searches, so perhaps someone who reads old style German lettering can help. See for yourself! No frills but secure packing -- we recycle when possible. Ships best flat well protected both with boards and plastic. Figure one pound -- mostly for wrapping. Payment and Shipping
