I would be very grateful for some help with the handwriting in the highlighted section. Does it give a name in the space for the bride's brother?
I believe that the bride's name is Gitel b Yakov Dom. Is that borne out by the Hebrew here?
Thanks very much,
Jessica

1/27/2013 4:35 PM To answer your first question regarding the highlighted text (Does it give a name in the space for the bride's brother?):
There is only a space for the groom's brother (not the bride's) and it says in it in Hebrew that he has no brothers. (There is a religious reason why it is important to know if the groom has got brother's or not, such reason does not exist for women).
I don't see anywhere the surname Dom.
The bride is called in Hebrew "the maiden Gitel daughter of Ya'akov".

Hope this helps you.

In the bottom part of the document, it is indicated that Gitel is a native of the same town as the groom. The name is written as Corlish, but it is probably meant to be Kalish....Jo
