The Meyer families Church Seal, [Siegel.]

I made a major mistake yesterday. I suppose with my luck it will circulate forever! I never should have recreated the church of Nahrendorf Seal. I was uneasy all night.
The word difference was Kirohensiegel and Nahrendorf. That was all.

Now, even though I have to go into work early today, I am going to show you the best copy I have of the original copy. I found it in the Meyer/ Luhmann binder. I regret that the right side is cropped too close. If only I had adjusted to make up for the left side margin being so wide. But for now it is something we have to put up with until I can find the original. I only hope it is in a safe place. Which, I suppose was the original intention. But at least now we have the original view. The folds had gotten so bad that I did make a major error. I glued another paper on to the back of it to make it more secure. I suspect it was not the right kind of glue. I don't know what to do about it any more. I think the damage has been done. I am very sorry.



So now, here is the body of the document with a scan done years ago. Again, Sorry about everything cropped too close. At least the entire right side is there. Nothing is cut off. I will find the original while I finnish my filing of my many boxes of papers. [I am sure you get the picture.]
The document is actually a yellowed paper. This scanner program really sucks. I can not usually get a parched look nor sepia. This is just not the true color. It shouldn't be pink. but then it is better than lavender or green tones.



We do see the name Anna Maria and then something that looks like johanaus and then Henke or Hencke.

A copy of a enlargement. The side are shortened even more, but we can see most of the words better! Now lets see, if we can understand the words better.



We need to see the names of Johan Heinrich Heins, Juergen Heinrich Wilhelm Meyer [ born *1843] and Anna Maria Henke, Maria Dorothea Heins [born *1851] or even Heinss. Possibly Juergen Friedrich Meyer and Cathrina Margarethea Luhmann,
