Please can someone translate the Hebrew for me? In particular I would like to know the Hebrew name of Abraham's father in case it helps to find his origins.

7/21/2013 5:08 PM It looks like Avraham ben Tzvi
7/21/2013 7:10 PM I agree with Avraham ben Tzvi
Betsy is Beyla daughter of ?? maybe Yosef
7/22/2013 1:46 PM Hello Sue,

The wedding took place during the Hebrew month of Elul in the Hebrew year of 5641. The exact date is also listed, but I am unable to decipher it.

It appears that the Hebrew name of the bride is Beyla Bas/(daughter of) Yosef. I'm just guessing that the groom's Hebrew name might be Avrohom Ben/(son of) Tzvi. I am sure of Avrohom but the rest is rather difficult to decipher.

There are brothers listed, and the only name that I can be sure of is the last one, Hersh.

7/23/2013 6:21 AM The date is 5 Elul. The day of the week precedes (maybe Monday, but that can be looked up).

The names mentioned above are correct. the bride is the previously unmarried Beyla daughter of Josef.

The brother(s) is one brother: "Zvi, known as Hirsch." The abbreviation after "Zvi" is short for "haMechuneh" (i.e. called).

The following line ("reside in"), I cannot decipher. sorry.
