Kennkarte Handwriting Help Needed.

Post by Zirran » 05 Nov 2020 18:58

Hi folks. Having trouble making out the handwriting of this Kennkarte I purchased a few years ago.

The dates are easy to work out. Can anyone figure out the rest of the handwriting?

Thanks for your input, Hiltraut!
I seemed to misspelled Augengläser... :?

About the surname, myheritage.com has this entry:
Peter Josef Luxem was born in 1881. Peter married Elisabeth Luxem (born Schäfer). Elisabeth was born in 1886, in Mayen. They had one son: Heinrich Luxem.

Thanks guys. I kept thinking Mayen and keine had double N's in them.
