This is the birth registration of my g-grandfather Mendel Bruh from Sokal, 1869. From the name "Jacob" under his name and the German word "zwilling" written next to the names I gather he had a twin brother, but the columns on the right handside of the page seem to be written in Polish. Can anyone make out what it says? Thank you.

7/18/2013 1:28 PM Dad is Berish Simon and mom is Gittel. The folks in the right hand column are probably witnesses: Nathan and Hencze (spelled wrong in the record) and Marcus and Scheine Siuzel it looks like. The geb 23/3/870 means born March 23,1870.
7/18/2013 4:02 PM The names on the right are probably the grandparents' names. WELICZKER Nathan and Hinde look like they are the parents of Simon BRUH (which suggests that Nathan and Hinde were not married civilly, only Jewishly and that BRUH is the surname of his mother Hinde).
SAIZEL/SUIZEL Marcus and Scheine - parents of Gittel. It looks like 'mehlfidler' next to Marcus SAIZEL/SUIZEL's name which would be his occupation. Mehl is flour but not sure about the fidler bit.
It looks like 'gest.' (not 'geb.') which is the abbreviation for gestorben (died) 23 March 1870 - probably refers to Jacob's date of death.
7/18/2013 6:50 PM And I forgot to mention the record is written in old German script, not Polish (in 1863 Galicia was part of the Austrian Empire and records were written in German).
Date of birth/registration is 3 October 1863 of Mendel and Jacob (twins). Parents' names BRUH Simon and Gittel.
