17080 Translation - Polish

10/24/2010 3:52 PM This is a record of the marriage of the widower Jankiel/Jankel Erenberg and the widow Ryfka.

I want to know
1) The names of the parents (mother and father) of the groom (Mr. Erenberg's parents). These are usually easy to find on marriage records, but I do not see them on this one.
2) The date when his first wife (Maryem?) died. I think that this information begins in the middle of the 5th line, immediately after the words that mean "...Erenberg, his wife".

17082 Translation - Hebrew

10/24/2010 3:52 PM A marriage document with a translation in english on the back but its origins are unknown as all families came from Poland, Vilna, Zhedulok, Kiev or Pereyaslav as far as known and it was thought(documented)they had not arrived in the UK until 1901. Later emigrated to Australia 1940's. Family names (some spelling variation) that could be on this document Kopeloff, Schachmeister, Serlin or perhaps some other?
We would appreciate any assistance or advice, thank you

17065 Translation - Polish

10/24/2010 3:51 PM We know it's a marriage certificate of Icek Chencinski. What is very very important to us and we couldn't translate is: names of both Icek's parents and where are they from ? Are they alive when the marriage takes place? How old is Icek in 1853?
We would like to know the names of the bride's parents and witnesses, but that's not the first priority.
This document may be the key for a very exciting family connection, So, please, help.
Thank you so much! Esti Szpitalnik
