Birth record for Johann Vick


The birth record for Johann Vick, son of Johann Steusloff and Marie Vick, from the parish records of Brunshaupten, Mecklenburg.  Notice above Johann Steusloff’s name the term “angeblich”, meaning alleged father.  This was indicative of a couple that was together but unable to get married (due most likely to the restrictive marriage laws in Mecklenburg at the time).
