4/25/2013 12:10 PM Yes, this is a marriage contract (ketubah) in Aramaic. The groom's name is Shmuel son of Chanan. The bride is Sara Feygah daughter of ________ They were married on a Wednesday the 15th day of the Hebrew month of Av in the year 5661 which corresponds to the civil date: July 31, 1901.
The bride was not previously married.
It is a bit hard for me to make out the bride's father's name. At the top it seems just a bit cut off, and it is squished at the bottom of the document. I believe it says daughter of Anshel. I hope this helps.
