I'd like a translation please of everything including the note. This is the marriage of Benno Levi (parents Leopold Levi and Mathilde Herz and Johanna Seligmann (parents Hirsch Seligmann and Berthe Gutheim. He was born in Waldorf, grew up in Markt Berolzheim. Not sure if he was living there or Nurnberg at the time of the marriage.
He was my grandfather's brother and along with all of my grandfather's siblings was murdered later by the Nazis. Thank you so much for the translation. I want to send it to his descendants. Thenk goodness their adult children got out.
