My goals for a translation are to learn:

- the date of the marriage between Gita Kahanowicz and Elihu Michaels
- exactly how Elihu's name is listed here. In the US, he was known as Louis Michaels. But I have been unable to determine what surname the family used in Poland.
- whether Elihu was from Sejny or from another town

Thank you!

1/7/2013 3:23 AM This is not a marriage record. I think what you must have here is one of the supporting documentsin the supplemental records relating to a marriage. This is the birth record of Itta Chaja KAHANOWICZ. As this is Itta's birth record, the name of her future husband would not appear.
