6/27/2013 4:50 AM I can read the Lithuanian and the Yiddish:
Prenskis Rachmiel, single, merchant, born 1903 in Vilkija, lives in Chekiskis, Jewish nationality, Lithuanian citizenship, son of Aron and Rachel Prensky nee Gempel

Vechteryte Malka, single, housewife, born 1905, born and living in Chekishkis, Jewish nationality, Lithuanian citizenship, daughter of Motel-Leib and Hena Vechter nee Veisfeld
6/27/2013 3:53 PM In Yiddish it is Malka Vekhter, and Yerakhmiel Prensky, both not previously married.

In this document in the Yiddish portion, Yerakhmiel's parents are registered as Aharon and Rashel.
Note that it is the Biblical, Hebrew "Aharon" used here (not Aron).

There is no mistaking the "Aharon" here for "Aryeh". and yet the parents' wedding registration and Yerakhmiel's birth regisration give Aryeh as the name.
