Viennese Death Certificate part 1: Barbara Raz Wechsler translated the headings for me...but can anyone read the question marked script...I've tried:

Sterbebuch uber die in Wien bie der Israelites = Death book about the Deaths in Vienna for the Israelites

Yahr, Monat und Tag = Year, Month, Day…
bes Sterbens, ber Beerbigung =Date of Death, Date of Burial [16December F.U.Alenh,??][19December GUUM?]

Der Verstorbenen Vor Und Zunamen Nebst Charakter= Name & Surname of the deceased, together with his occupation (For children and those uncared for, also name and occupation of their parents; for women and widows, name and occupation of their spouses; for foreigners, their homeland).

[Samuel Stecher elminhandler?? und Zmigrod in Galicia …note: this was his town of birth] from Zmigrod in Galicia]

12/30/2012 7:24 PM Date and time of death look like "16. [or 18.] Dezember 1869, 7 Uhr Abends" - i.e., 16th [or 18th] December 1869, 7:00 p.m.

Date and place of burial look line "19. Dezember, 9 Uhr Vormittag" i.e., 19th December, 9:00 a.m.

Occupation is difficult to make out -- possibly something "-haendler" ("haendler" is a trader or salesman)

12/31/2012 12:30 AM I agree. Died on 16th December. And a line in Hebrew.
He was "Kleinhändler", a retail trader.
