23006 Translation - Polish

5/30/2012 4:15 PM This document was among those I recently received from the Vilnius Central Archives per my request of Internal/External Passport records for the Shibvosky/Szybovski family. I cannot make out the first word after the arrow marker in the left-hand margin. It is just before the crossed-out name "Abel" and I think it is in Polish. Can anyone make out the word? Thanks!

23002 Translation - Hebrew

5/27/2012 4:41 PM This is a birth record of Mayer Hertz. His father was Leib or Levy Hertz. *His* father is given in other records as Hertz Lion. However, the Hebrew signature in this document does not appear to be Leib or Levy bar Hershel -- and I believe the only male Jewish signator of this document was Leib Hertz. Perhaps it was Naftali?
