I would appreciate if anyone could help me not only fully translate this page from a Czech Familiant book, but also to interpret it.

I read this to say that Abraham Klimpl was married to [???] on Nov 15, 1776. Their son, Solomon Klimpl married Anna Buchbinder in 1803. Solomon had a younger brother named [???] (see notation on right hand side)

Solomon's son, Jonas (born 1812, see notation on right hand side of page) married Ludmilla Bondy in 1829, then Theresa Bondy on April 2, 1840.

I'd appreciate any more insight into this page from my family's history.

Thank you.

I believe I have very interesting information for you. However, I am somewhat limited in my ability to decipher all the script on the Familiant page.

First of all, my family also originates from the village of Drazkov on the Skrysov estate. The village of Skrysov is about a kilometer uphill from Drazkov. Gross Kamyk, also known as Kamyk nad Vltavou, is several kms. to the south-west, and thus much (but not all) documentation may be found in both Kamyk and Svaty Johann entries.

To the best of my knowledge and examination, my family, who acquired the surname Konig, did not arrive in Drazkov until the later 1790s. They were on the nearby Zduchovitz estate just to the west of Drazkov. There was at least one marriage between a Schwartz family and a Konig family from Drzakov, and I am in contact with their descendants who live in Israel and Prague, among other places.

I am limited in words thru this format. Will try and send via email.
3/26/2013 5:12 AM One thing that is easy to read is that Abraham was Abraham Moises - Moises was either a patronymic - his father's name - or a previous person's name which the family used as a family name before they were 'officially' Klimpl.
3/26/2013 12:48 PM to my understanding, Abraham Moises Klimpel was married to Breunle Offner (or similar ...ner)around 1776, and they had two sons: Salomon and Josef;
Abraham's successor Salomon Klimpl was married to Anna Buchbinder around 1803, and they seem to have had two sons: Jonas and Moses;
Salomon Klimpel was married around May 1839 to Ludmilla Bondy, who died within few months and he remarried around April 1840 Theresia Bondy.
4/3/2013 10:39 AM I agree with the responder, only there was a typo: The one who married the two Bondy(-sisters?) was Jonas Klimpl, born 1812.

The parents of Abraham Moises and of Breundl Offner? are unknown.
Abraham was first called "Abraham Moises" and LATER Abraham Klimpl. [Perhaps he was officially recognised as son of Klimpel a little later than the birth. Perhaps his mothers second name was Moises...]
Abraham Moises Klimpel was married to Breunle Offner on November (25?) 1776 [at Zebeakow/Zebrakow?], and they had two sons: Salomon and Josef;
Abraham's successor Salomon Klimpl was married to Anna Buchbinder on February 27th 1803, and they have had two sons: Jonas and Moses;
Jonas Klimpel, born 1812, son of Salomon, was married on May 2nd 1839 to Ludmilla Bondy, who died within few months and he remarried April 2nd 1840 Theresia Bondy.
