8/4/2013 4:28 PM Need a complete translation. Picture on front of post card is of a handsome, well-dressed businessman (i.e., wearing suit and tie)in his thirties, who is believed to be Joseph Birenberg. He would be my great uncle.

28427 Interpretation

8/4/2013 4:26 PM This is a US Passport Application for Joseph Rosenberg who was born 14 July 1844 in Hannover, Germany. I am not able to decipher the handwriting where he wrote the name of his birth town. Is anyone with knowledge of the towns in Hannover c.1844 able to decipher the name of the town highlighted in yellow in this passport application?

Thank you,
Bob Goodman
