Act No.

Grajewo

Right column:
This happened in the town of Grajewo on (19th) the 31st of December, of the year 1856, at ten o'clock in the morning. [There] appeared a Jew [named] Lejzer Wolfowicz Berensztejn, a tanner [being] 22 years old from Grajewo, in the presence of witnesses Jitka[???] Wolfowicz [son of Wolf] Walewski, a laborer [being] 55 years old, and Abram Mendlowicz [son of Mendel] Kurejwowski[???] a butcher [being] 40 years old,
both living in Grajewo, and presented to us a male child born here in Grajewo on (12th) 24th day of the current month and year, at five o'clock in the morning, from his wife Sara[???] Rejzla[???] Nachmanowna [daughter of Nachman], [being] 20 years old, for whom [refers to the child] at the circumcision the name of Nachman was given - after which this act was written, read and signed by us because the father and witnesses stated that they did not know how to write.

[Please note that the days in bracket refer to Julian calendar, while the others to Gregorian one - at the time both were used in the part of Poland that was occupied by Russia, and at that time the difference between the Old Style and New Style dates were 12 days]
