1653 Birth in Mainz

  • We are looking for information on the Braun family of Mainz and find this entry. We don't know if only the last line is applicable or if the information about Petri Vietoris is related in some way. Anyway, the only thing we are sure of, is that Nikolaus Braun is mentioned in the last line. Can you help with any of the rest?

    Thank you,

  • Hello Christiana,

    last line:

    R.[everendi] D.[omini] Nicolaij Braun a quo similiter nulla sced.[ula] data.

    I understand that on the 13th of July a child was born to the Right Rev. Nicolaus Braun, and in this case, similar to the preceding baptism, there was no paper containing the exact data given to the priest.

    I'm not very sure of all this, and possibly am quite wrong ...
