The official of the civil record by procuration Zehlchen
11/18/2012 9:54 AM Lewin's wife Bertha died in Landsberg-Warthe (as you already know from VM 24892).
Whereas Lewin's father Abraham Haendel had died in Landsberg-Warthe, the name of his mother was not known, and it was not known if she had died, and if she was alife, where she was living; this is why it says "more details unknown".
In the transcription, the word "bekannt" is missing.
11/18/2012 10:10 PM Sorry, but there is no word "bekannt" in the original. ov
11/19/2012 7:26 AM The word "bekannt" is the only word in the line two lines below "der Persüonlichkeit nach". Then prefix "be" is handwritten, and "kannt" is printed. All German civil records of that time are like this.
