I would very much appreciate a translation of the vital info contained within this document - in particular, the names of Franziska Lemmen's parents and a translation of the writing at the upper right.

7/14/2019 9:36 PM Hello,

I cannot read every word [this registrar had terrible handwriting], but here is what I can glean:

Berlin, May 24th, 1917

Groom:
Tradesman Otto Seelig, Jewish, born May 24th, 1897 in Posen, residing in Berlin, Wilmersdorf, Joachim Friedrich Street 22/23, son of the late tradesman Emil Seelig, who last resided in Charlottenburg, and his wife Rebekka nee Katz, living in Berlin-Wilmersdorf.

Bride:
Josephina Franziska Lemmen, Catholic, born May 6th,1894 in Crefeld [?], residing in Berlin, Wilmersdorf, Joachim Friedrich Street 22/23, daughter of the tradesman Karl Lemmen and his wife Monica [?], nee Verres, living in Crefeld

(There is usually a second page to the marriage document, listing the witnesses and with signatures).

The top right is dated October 26, 1921, and says that as of September 17th, the marriage between the merchant Otto Seelig and Josephina Franziska nee Lemmen has been dissolved (in other words, they were divorced).
7/16/2019 7:01 AM addendum:

Otto Seeling was born
25. Mai achthundertneunundsiebzig = 1879

bride is
JosephinE Franziska Lemmen * 6. Mai 1894 in Crefeld (now Krefeld)
her parents are correct: Karl Lemmen and Monica nee Verres living in Crefeld

I found page two:
witnesses

3. Kaufmann (merchant) Adolf Heynemann, durch polizeiliche Anmeldung anerkannt
61 Jahre alt, wohnhaft in Berlin-Wilmersdorf, Babelsberger Straße 50

4. die Rebekka Seelig ohne Beruf (without profession)

durch Heiratsurkunde anerkannt,
60 Jahre alt, wohnhaft in Berlin-Wilmersdorf, Joachim-Friedrich-Straße 22/23

(4. written Rebekka, signs Rebecca)

Regards, Corinna
