Any chance of a sharper picture, maybe just of the Andreas
entry? When I hit the magnify button, it's all a bit blurred.
The date is 27th November.
Most of the entry is a list of godparents, I think I see
a Martin someone, Johann Zobel, someone Kramsitz,
Frau Margarethe something, Jungfrau Catharina Kruegerin,
There my be occupations after some of the names - a sharper
picture would help.
