I hope this is the birth record of Szajndla GORECKI. I do not know who her parents are. Please translate it completely including names of witnesses.

Thank you!

3/31/2015 7:24 AM 42. It came to pass in the Town of Opole on the twenty-ninth day of April in the year of one thousand eight hundred and sixty-six at the hour of one in the afternoon. Appeared personally Orthodox Jew Naftula Gorecki, a day-labourer who at that time was twenty-two years of age and residing in the Town of Opole, accompanied by witnesses, that is to say, Orthodox Jews Symucha Karafiol, a szkolnik, and Szmul Betler, a day-labourer, who at that time were both thirty-one years of age and residing in the Town of Opole, and he showed us a baby of sex male, declaring that the very same baby had been born here in Opole on the twenty-first day of the current month of the current year at the hour of six in the morning from his spouse Cypa nee Feder, twenty-one years of age, to whom during the course of the religious ceremony the name had been given Szajndla. The actual act was read aloud to the appearers and the witnesses and subsequently signed by them along with myself, a Civil Registrar. Neither Betler nor the father knew how to write.
