These are records possibly associated with name changes. I would like to get a transcription and a translation. I am including several records related to the same name (Feiss) in hopes of a) making it easier to understand the boilerplate, and b) helping me understand why there are so many different records with seemingly the same name. I am submitting a second such image separately.

Before us, the Mayor of the community of Gauersheim, Canton of Kirchheimbolanden, District of Mainz, Department of Donnersberg appeared Abraham Feis who declared that his underage son born in Gauersheim on the first of Nivose Year 8 is given the family name of Feis and the given name of Salomon and signed below with us on the 19th of October 1808.
