    Hi, it should be: "Einen aufrichtigen acort oder Vergleich gemacht den 24. Tag October 1799." "acort" is an old Frech word, and it is meant "agreement"; see also the English word "accord". In German it is for example "Vereinbarung". In that time it was usual, to use french words. Uwe

  12. Mein Vater konnte noch Pommersch Platt, meine Eltern legten aber Wert darauf, daß wir Kinder Hochdeutsch sprachen. Es ist uns, überwiegend aufgewachsen in Niedersachsen, halbwegs gelungen. Jahrelange Aufenthalte in anderen (westdeutschen) Ländern ermöglichen mir aber auch den Austausch in Bayerisch und Hessisch. Ostfriesisch sollte hier aber nicht zugelassen werden.
