I believe this is the wedding certificate of my grandfather and grandmother.

It maybe the betrothal certificate. I would like to know what exactly it is.

I would like to know the names of those listed in ink in the document.

I would like to know the relevant date or dates.

11/9/2012 2:01 PM The Yiddish word for the betrothal is "taniem."
It is pronounced ta-nigh-eem, with the emphasis on the second syllable. This word appears on the third line of the document. It is the third word in from the left (really towards the end of the line, since it is read from right to left). The word is written as: ha Taniem, the betrothal.
11/26/2012 10:16 AM I add : the date when the document was established (it is not a Ketubbah, but it is called in Hebrew "Tenayim" and rules the financiel conditions of the marriage) is what I have written in my 1st message. So the true date of the Chuppah is previewed for Rosh-Chodesh Iyar of the same year.

All the best.
