Anything Slightly Unusual About this Petition?
This petition to adminstrate the estate of Mimke Fecht comes from 1937 and lists his heirs-at-law at the time of his death. Readers with an eye for detail may notice something slightly strange about one of the names on this document. A few first names are spelled incorrectly, but that's not what may appear odd.
All last names are right. We'll have an update in a future issue of Casefile Clues--subscribe now and join the discovery.
