Comment

This is one of a very small number of Taufscheine which had the infill printed. The type would have been set specifically for this piece, making it much more time-consuming to print than a standard blank form. Another version of this same edition, for Ana Susanna Kärn born 1762 in Tulpehocken, Berks County, also had printed infill.
