I have extracted most of the info from this marriage document of Chiam Birenbaum son of Berek and Basia to Chaja Sura Dszytnik in 1846 in Nowe Miasto nad Pilica. However, there are two mentions of a Szlama Birenbaum, but I am unable to determine who he is. I was wondering if there is any indication who this is. Is Szlama an an uncle or some other relation to Chaim Birenbaum??

Thanks in advance.

11/29/2012 7:03 AM I think it might be uncle, which is "wuj" in modern Polish, but maybe was written with an i (instead of the j) in old Polish (but I'm no expert). The word after the name Szlama Birnbaum has to indicate what he was to Chaim, and "uncle" fits.

All the best, Miriam.
11/29/2012 3:36 PM The parents of Chaim are Mosiek and Basia. They were both deceased at the time of the marriage of Chaim BIRNBAUM and Chaia Sura DZIESIATNIK.
Chaia Sura was a widow, 26 years old.
Szlama BIRNBAUM was according to this record Chaim's uncle.
1/13/2014 5:16 AM It came to pass in Nowe Miasto on the Pilica on the third day of November in the year of one thousand eight hundred and forty-six at the hour of four before noon. Appeared personally Orthodox Jew Motel Margolewski, the local Rabbi, together with
