The image is of the register entry for the parents of my g-g grandfather. His father (left) appears to be Simon Zimml, (occupation?), and his mother (right) I think is Rosalia Benischek. I need a translation of this right side box.

Thank you

6/1/2009 Hello Philip
This looks to me like Sutterlin handwriting which was used throughout germany prior to WW2.
I have trouble reading it but there is a very helpful website for deciphering the letters.
http://www.suetterlinschrift.de/Englisch/Titel.htm
Mrs Margarete Ritzkowsky has done some translating for me from Sutterlin, I have found her very kind and obliging.
http://www.suetterlin-service.de/ This is her website. You can tell her that I recommended her (she may remember me from Sydney Australia).
Best wishes and Good luck.
