19420 Translation - Hebrew

6/29/2011 4:59 PM We found this document while cleaning out an apartment.

It was hand written and colored on a bamboo type of parchment. It's colored in a gold ink in certain areas.

Aside from the "name," I don't know what it says.

My great-grandfather did own a religious articles store on the Lower East Side, so it wouldn't entirely surprise me if it was something for sale there.

Other than that, I'm not sure.

Any ideas of what it says; and if translated... What it might have meant or been used for?

19414 Translation - Hebrew

6/29/2011 4:58 PM Hello,
Could someone please translate the Hebrew in the third column of row #9 under Aladar Peterfreund's name? I'm guessing the second word is Peterfreund in Hebrew, while the first word is his Hebrew name. What is it?

19410 Translation - German

6/29/2011 4:57 PM This is from the record of two births. The record was made in 1887. The births were in 1863 and 1865. The father is Leib Buksbaum.

Not all of the sections of the form was completed. I did not include the sections that were left blank. All of the data entered in the record is included in the image.

1. What is the father's father's name?
2. What is the father's mother's name?
3. What is the father's age (the age of Leib Buksbaum)? Is that the age when the births happened or the age when the record was made?
4. What language is it?

19406 Translation - Polish

6/29/2011 4:57 PM This is a marriage record. The groom is J. Erenberg, son of H. Erenberg. The bride is Mariem, daughter of Abram.

1. The word after Mariem on the 1st line and the word after Abrama on the 3rd line are the bride's maiden name and her dad's surname. What is this word?

2. The last word on the 3rd line is the bride's mother's name. What is the bride's mother's name (cannot read the handwriting)?

3. Normally, the father of the bride and the father of the groom consent to a marriage. This record appears to say that H. Erenberg (the father of the groom) and someone named Ryfki consented, but does not mention consent from Abram (the father of the bride). What is Ryfki's relationship to the bride? Why is there no mention of consent from the bride's father Abram?
