A ketubah for my grandparents. Not sure if it's Hebrew or Yiddish, but only looking for translation of the hand written entries, not the standard marriage text.

Thanks so much!

1/15/2014 10:30 PM On the 26th day of the Hebrew month of Shvat, 5680(corresponding to February 15, 1920)in Brooklyn, groom is Baruch Zvi son of Mordechai, bride is Zisel, daughter of Meir.


There are signatures of 2 witnesses at the bottom, one is illegible, the second may be Eli Rabinovich
1/16/2014 3:45 AM the above response if correct, except for the witness. Usually the names of witnesses is irrelevant since they cannot be related to either side, but here the second witness has been cut off from the bottom of the scan, and the first one seems to be the same handwriting that filled out all the blanks, so it's probably the rabbi who performend the marriage. His name is Sholom son of R. Elya Rabinowitz.
