I'd like a complete translation of this document. I think it is the death certificate of my 2x great grandparents' first daughter (she was a twin) Veronika Levi. The name is Levi, but sometimes I see with a y. Her father was Simon Levi. I think she died on the day she was born 4 July 1844, or was stillborn. Her brother also died or was stillborn.
I can see this document is hard to read. it appears to be all handwritten. If you need a better copy, email me at lin32905@gmail.com. veronica's mother is Elisabethe "Lisette" Levi born Schweizer. Her father is Simon Levi.

The certificate is dated 8-Jul-1844.
The witnesses are Simon Levy, 35 years old, Handelsmann, resident in Waldorf, the father of the deceased and Jacob Scheben, 36 years old, occupation ?, resident Waldorf, a neighbour. Veronika Levy died at Waldorf on 6-Jul-1844 at 7 o'clock in the evening, aged 3 days old. She was the daughter of Simon Levy and his wife Lisette Schweitzer
