Joseph Levi was the son of my 3x great grandparents Seckel Isaak (Isak, Isaac, etc) Levi and Hille/ Hilche/Hilge/ Hilgen/ Helena Simon.
I'd like to know any information given here and if it gives his father's occupation, etc. If you have any questions my email is lin32905@gmail.com. Thank you so much.
I'm confused as to where this Waldof is as it sometimes says Rheinland and sometimes Westphalia.

Thank you so very much.

This is a birth certificate, not a death certificate.
Joseph Levi, son of Isac Levi & Helena Simon was born on 27-Dec-1819 at 7 o'clock, at Waldorf, kreis Bonn.
The father Isac Levi is 42 years old.
I'm struggling to read the occupation - perhaps hausiere which google translates as a hawker or peddler.
3/3/2021 8:56 PM You asked which Waldorf this is - It is this one: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waldorf_(Bornheim)
Today it is part of the state of North Rhine - Westphalia (NRW)in the North West corner of Rhein-Sieg-Kreis which is the kreis that surrounds Bonn.
I think the occupation reads hausirer (peddlar), a
slight change from my earlier reading, but same meaning.
