17370 Translation - Russian

12/8/2010 3:56 PM This is the birth record for Szajndla SZWARC. The record is from Lowicz, Russian Empire (now Poland) and is dated 1893. I assume it is in handwritten Russian Cyrillic. I would appreciate any help in getting a complete translation of this birth record. I am tracing my husband's Grandmother Gussie Schwartz. Thank you.

12/5/2010 4:15 PM This page should contain the birth record of David Yudel Fisher 14 Aug 1870 or 29 Av - son of Josel and Shore. It is from the metrical books of Varniai, Telsai, Kaunas. I am unable to decipher anything on the record. Can you confirm this birth entry is present, provide additional info about text, and tell me (perhaps by number in left column) which record is the correct one? Thank you in advance for your assistance. View the post with its 3 responses

12/5/2010 4:15 PM This is from the Yad Vashem website. Could somebody please translate the section headings? (numbered 1 -11) I can make sense of some of it, but if I knew what information was being asked for, it would make a lot more sense. And is that supposed to be a photo of her on the left hand side? If it is, what does it say, please.
Many, many thanks in advance

17407 Translation - Russian

12/5/2010 4:14 PM I think this is a very challenging test. I have had problems deciphering this message because the image on the Mormon microfilm is poor and the handwriting difficult to follow. JRI Poland describes this as the marriage of Leibus Szifman but the bride is not mentioned. The groom may be the brother of my great grandfather and I would greatly appreciate any information. I would be happy to provide a larger size file if requested. View the post with its 1 response

12/5/2010 4:14 PM This is the cover from a set of documents at Zhitomir archive. One or both of the companion documents I am submitting came from this volume. I would like a translation of the written material on the face of this cover, including a deciphering of the stamp in the lower left corner, if possible.

(This cover may be newer than the enclosed documents which apparently date to 1883.)
