    This is a German Family Register Book from my maternal great-grandparents. It begins with the 1902 wedding certificate registry and then includes a list for the children's birth information. The handwriting is all in that old-type German handscript and I was barely able to decipher some of it. It includes the official birth, baptismal, and some death certificates stamps, the last entry being my great uncle who died in 1965. It was especially sad to see that only two of their five children survived, my great-uncle (first-born) and my grandmother (third-born). Two of their children died within a month of birth and the last one was two months premature and died at birth. My great-grandfather was born in 1880 and my great-grandmother was born in 1878. They actually shared the same birthday, only two years apart. -- The book has hard cloth covers, is 48 pages in full, and is string bound. The book printer is noted as C.S. Winter's Book Bindery in Darmstadt.
