This is the death certificate (I think it's a death certificate) of my great-great grandfather Samson Humberg. He died on 28 Sept. 1897, but this certificate is dated the next day. He lived in Klein Reken, but the certificate says Gross Reken. His wife was Alexandrine Anschel aka Sandrine, Hedrina, Helene, His mother's name was Hanne Samson also born in Klein Reken. His father's name was Moses Abraham Humberg. Please let me know if you need any more information. I can read much of this, but not all. I so appreciate your help. If you need a larger copy or have questions my email is Or you can comment on the form.
