41762 Translation - German

8/19/2015 4:42 PM This is an addendum made in 1888 on an 1882 birth record. I don't need an exact translation of the legalese. I can't make out whether Paul Reichenheim adopted Johannes Paul Braatz on marrying JPB's mother, or if he acknowledged him as his child, and I'd like to know which, if it's buried in there.

41770 Translation - Russian

8/19/2015 4:42 PM Hi Genners, more fun with handwritten Cyrillic! I am trying to confirm some answers to questions from the 1897 All-Russia Census about a man named Nochim Hlavin.

Is the word in Column 6 a contraction of "meschanin" or another word?

Do the answers to Columns 7 and 8 indicate that he was born in Drissa District (Vitebsk) but registered in the town of Drissa?

Does the long answer in two parts in the last column mean that he was a clerk in the meat trade? I can make out a word for "trade" but the long answer is puzzling me.

Thank you so much for your help.

Thanking you in advance.
