I have the wedding certificate of 2 of my ancestors (the one on the left). But it's in German and not knowing much German makes it difficult to even transcribe, let alone translate it. Could somebody help me with this? It's about the marriage between Nicolas Delcourt and Anne Marguerite Scheftgen in 1859.
unfortunately, I can not read the maiden name of the mothers.
