This is a marriage certificate for my third great grandparents: Hirsch WEILER, 12 March 1775, Steinbach am Glan--21 July 1873, Steinbach am Glan. His wife, Hebe Heben ABRAHAM, 29 September 1780, Wallhalben--29 Jan 1850, Steinbach am Glan. Married 8 February 1805, Glan-Muenchweiler. In French, but I thought this site would have someone to translate. Thank you very much.

Some territories, now in Germany, were annexed to France in the years 179x. They were divided into French departments like Sarre (Saarland) and Mont Tonnerre (Donnersberg). They remained French until 1814.

The French Republican calendar was in use from 1792 to 1805.

You already know all the essential information.

I translate the readable part of the marriage record. If you can provide me a better quality document I’ll try to translate the end of the document containing the witnesses'names.
