    Lightbulb Transcription + Deciphering + Translation of (old) German handwritings

    You need help in reading an old German handwriting? You can't decipher a name? Your translation doesn't make sense?

    Here is my help thread.

    I am no professional, but I like old German handwritings and have already transcribed different texts and letters from the 19th and 20th century.

    Note: High resolution photos are helpful. Please appreciate that I cannot transcribe and translate letters that are about 5 pages long. As I am no professional I need some time for my transcriptions.

    Now it is your turn. I look forward to receiving your requests for help.

    Best regards,
    Stefan

    Hi Stefan,

    That is most generous of you, I'm sure this will come in handy for the other folk here. And on a side note, welcome to the forums, you will find a great bunch of people here

    I do actually have some documents from a soldier in WW1 that I would love to be bale to read, so may take you up on your offer

    Thank you Stefan for your time and welcome once again
    Here's the postcard I told you about (as I said, another forum member kindly translated some of the words but not all the text, so if you can give it a try that would be great)
    Thanks for your help

    Liebes Hiegekind,
    recht (?) herzlich hier, der Führer fährt
    tgl mehrmals an meinem Fenster
    vorbei. 2x hab ihn gesehen, aber bei
    der Luitpoldarena ganz dicht, er fuhr
    Schritt. Er ist begeisternd. (Stimmt!!)
    Herzliche Grüße
    Heil Hitler

    Dear Hiegechild,
    quite (?) cordial here, the Fuehrer drives
    several times past my window.
    I saw him two times, but at
    Luitpoldarena very close, he drove slowly.
    He is sparkling. (Agreed!!)
    Kind regards
    Heil Hitler
    Katharina

    My English is not perfect, I hope you are fine with my translation.

    Best regards,

    I would be grateful if you could have a look at and perhaps translate these for me, Stefan And, again, great initiative! Let's try not overwhelm him guys... no full diaries

    First, a sad looking one... field graves in cabbage field... I have the first line as "5 Heldengräber vor Lyon", which is easy enough to understand but I have no clue as far as the next lines go-

    Dang, I have 5 or 6 Wehrpasses that I need complete translations for.....LoL...Just Kidding....
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
