Unfortunately, I cannot read the name of the woman Hanß Burckhardt married here, in Madelungen in 1659.

Can anyone make out either of her names here?

I’d say it’s “Anna Schucharten”.

It looks like there’s some additional letters right after Anna at the end of the first line, but it wouldn’t make much sense, so I guess it’s just a bleed-through from the next or the opposite page.

  • That agrees with my take as well. Bleed-through for the bit after "Anna" seems quite possible - I was thinking "Kat", but that's a bit of a stretch.

  • Do you have access to the other page? Maybe the letters make sense there to exclude them from "this" page.
