7/4/2013 11:28 PM Birth date is 4 Jun 1878. House # 1087. Bris on 11 Jun.

Father is Hersch Fleiss Proprieter in Magazinar. Mother is Rosa daughter of Jossel Feller, baker, and Nessie, from Bojar.
7/4/2013 11:39 PM Thank you. What is the meaning of "Proprieter in Magazinar? is it a name of a town? I could not find anything like it in the town finder.
7/5/2013 1:38 PM Ah, I misunderstood it and thought you need only the information of column 3.

Hersch's profession was "Propinations Magazinär". This profession does not exist anymore. But most likely he worked in the warehouse or the organisation of the propination.
(Propination laws were a privilege granted to Polish szlachta that gave landowners a monopoly over profits from alcohol drank by peasants they owned. In many cases, profits from propination exceeded those from agricultural production or other sources. wikipedia)
