1/21/2013 10:02 AM All that took place in Brzeznica on the fourth day of July in the year one thousand eight hundred and thirty-one at the hour of seven in the afternoon. Appeared personally Orthodox Jew Pawel Berkenszlatt, sixty-one years of age and Szlama Gryn, fifty-six years of age, both residing there, the former being tanner and the latter being baker, and declared that the Orthodox Jew Ankiel Buchmann, the butcher sixty-two years of age residing in Brzeznica, the begotten son of a married couple, the Ankiels*, namely Lewek and Haj, neither of them alive anymore, had deceased at that very moment, at the aforementioned hour, leaving behind his widowed spouse Zelda Buchmann, the daughter of Abracham** and his minor children. As soon as the undersigned saw for himself that Ankiel Buchmann was dead, the above certificate was read aloud to the appeared, the consanguinity whereof with the deceased was close, and signed personally by both of them.

Pawel Berkenszlat (signed)
Szlama Gryn (signed)
Karol Borek, responsible for maintaining the Civil Register (signed)


*Probably should have been “The Buchmanns”, looks to be an obvious mistake by the civil registrar

**Zelda Buchmann is being referred to as “Zelda z Abrachamow” meaning literally “the daughter of Abracham” but could in theory indicate that her maiden surname was “Abracham” which we do not know
