2/18/2013 3:09 PM This is very difficult to read. Perhaps a better solution of the scan would help.
But I doubt very much you would find the information you are looking for.

The main part is a declaration of xxx Nachem Kahn (as he signs)/ Nachem Schey Kahn. It is about the heritage of his father Schey Leibe? Kahn.
Nachem declares that he has no claims about this legacy and confirms especially that his brother Simon/Siemon Schey Kahn (written both ways) is the rightfull owner of a property at Polangen.

The second part is the confirmation of a notary. He declares that the signature is the siganture of Nachem Kahn.
