(I just changed translation request to German as a reader suggested it was not Polish)2/26/2014

This is a close-up of a Nowy Sacz Birth Entry. The complete entry was too large to download via ViewMate.

This is the birth of a Chaim BIRNBAUM on Nov. 16, 1878. His mother is Marjem BIRNBAUM, daughter of Abraham Schneier, talmu...?

There was no civil marriage and Chaim's father is not listed.

My questions...
1.What would be the translation for the phrase "talmu?...."(occupation? title?)

2.Abraham SCHLANGER is the sandek what is the word directly after his surname?

3. Most importantly, there is a comment at the end referencing the year 1879 and perhaps, another related document. What does this comment say? In 1890 there is a list of children for this family and Chaim is not on it. Could he have passed away in 1879?

Thank you for your time. It is very much appreciated.

1. occupation of Abraham Schneier Birnbaum, but the word written is "talmudisten" one that studies the Talmud
(a scholar specializing in the study of the Talmud)

2. Schames = Sandek at Neusandez

3. Yes, he has passed in 1879. The comment tells in Latin to take a look (vide) at the death records of 1879. Perhaps: the third book of that year, page/pagina 40 and Zeile/ line 85
