'Fraktur' are decorated manuscripts or documents of early Pennsylvania-Germans and other German-American immigrants. Early fraktur (1750 forward) were hand drawn with pen and ink, and colored with watercolor paints. Read more here and here.
The most popular type of American fraktur was the 'taufschein', or birth and baptismal certificate. This taufschein was created for a girl named Margaret Heller, born in 1818 in Bucks County, Pennsylvania
