I'm having trouble reading the name of the town in Germany that my great-great-grandmother Christina Nagel was born in. She married Carl Joseph Schneider in Bonn, Nordrhein-Westfalen. He was born in Erpel, Rheinland-Pfalz, and his mother was born there too, but his father was born in Remagen, Rheinland-Pfalz (the next town over, across the river). After Carl Joseph Schneider and Christina Nagel married they lived in Remagen and their children were baptized there, and in 1892 they immigrated to St. Louis, Missouri. Christina Nagel's father was from Hermühlheim, Nordrhein-Westfalen (I'm not sure if he was born and baptized there or if he just lived there for a while, but I have a book of compiled Remagen Catholic Church records which says that is where he was from). He was buried in Remagen, so he may have moved there eventually. I'm not sure where her mother was from, or where her parents married. Does the name that I can't read on the marriage certificate look like any town near the ones I have mentioned? Any idea what it says?

Hi , from what I can make of it by the stamp, I think it is the city of Bonn, Talk lster Danny
The marriage took place in Bonn. I can figure out most of the information on the certificate, but I can't read the name of the town that Christina Nagel was born in. It doesn't look like Bonn.
The volunteer from my local Family History Center posted the marriage certificate to the German Genealogie groups, and one of the replies was from a German who said he thought the town was Kendenich. Looking at it, I think he is probably right, especially since it makes sense; Kendenich is close to Hermülheim, where her father was from.

Hi Beth, I really tried hard to figure this out with no luck. If you are still interested, I can post it to a German Genealogy list that  I belong too and maybe they can help?
