      Bitte erschrecken sie nicht über die enorme Zahl an Taufpaten! Es galt als ein gewisses Zeichen von Prestige und reltivem Wohlstand möglichst viele Taufpaten zu haben (für jeden Taufpaten über die ersten drei hinaus musste eine bestimmte Gebühr an die Kirche entrichtet werden). Die Taufpaten können unter Umständen wertvolle Hinweise auf die Herkunft einer Familie geben.

      Please do not be alarmed by the enormous number of godparents! It was considered as a sign of prestige and wealth to have as many godfathers (for each godfather above the first three, a certain fee had to be paid to the church). The godparents may be able to provide valuable clues about the origin of a family.
