5/19/2013 5:03 PM First: Its lacks a birth-year.
The certificate was issued May 390th 1901 as a copy of the metric record:
Cristian date: 1/2 June Hebrew date: 8/9 Sivan
[so, keeping in mind that this is julian calendar, the possible dates for the nineteenth century are:
June 1, 1818 CE = Sivan 9, 5578 [CL] (Saturday)
June 1, 1826 CE = Sivan 8, 5586 [NL] (Tuesday)
June 1, 1845 CE = Sivan 8, 5605 [DL] (Friday)
June 1, 1864 CE = Sivan 9, 5624 [DL] (Monday)
June 1, 1883 CE = Sivan 8, 5643 [DL] (Wednesday)
June 1, 1894 CE = Sivan 9, 5654 [CL] (Wednesday)]

Father: Petty bourgeois from Ilya

5/29/2013 2:11 PM First two columns - gender. Marked as "female".
Third column "who circumcised" - blank.
Forth and fifth columns "Date of birth and circumcision", and then divided into "Christian" and "Jewish". "June 1/2" for the Christian one, "can't make out the Jewish month, the date is 8/9, obviously".

no time to get to the rest now.
