I would appreciate if someone would help me translate this document that I just received from the archives in Wurzburg.
I can see that it is about Anna Springmann, but can't read what it says.

1/18/2013 5:31 AM This image gives the birthplace of Anna Teichmann as Rokitno near Lemberg/Galizien and her birthdate as March 24, 1861. In the left margin below it gives her parents as Bernhard Teichmann, Handelsmann, (Trader, merchant, small shopowner etc.) and her mother as Sara Herrmann in Dresden.
In the text it says that she sold her business to a certain Katzenberger on February 28, 1912 and it says in the right margin she came to Wuerzburg running the business but her permanent residence was in Aschaffenburg.
The other document about her son Josef also states once her address in Wuerzburg, but also says that he had left for New York. While he was in Wuerzburg he learned in a business (which was usual in Germany) the trade of Dekorateur (Dekorateurlehrling) which means he learned to dress shop windows or learn how to paint signs etc. while at the same time probably once or twice a week had to attend a qualified polytechnical school for that trade.

The City of Würzburg kept for each houshold a sheet (Bogen) and a card (Karte), The "Bogen" is a four-page folded sheet of A4 size, and the card is a single A4 sheet. It appears that this is the first page of the "Bogen", whereas VM25571 is the "Karte". The penciled note "Karte" on this document may refer to the fact that there is also a Karte for the same household. VM25571 goes until 1906, and this document starts at 1906.
Residents had (and still have) to notify the city authorities of their establishment in the city and each time they moved from one address to another.
The second floor in European usage corresponds to the third florr in American usage.
The place of origin (Heimatort), not necessily the place of birth, is the place where a citizen had certain lifetime rights of citizenship.
