Hello,
I could use some help translating this birth record,
Particularly the parents and remarks column.
I have several other similar records I am working on and a linear translation would help me learn to translate these myself.
Thank you for any assistance offered,
Brian Lehman

I declare myself to be the father
David Moses Schuster
Proxy and witness
Barech Eisenberg

[my notes:
The child was deemed illegitimate because the marriage of the parents had not been registered by the civil authorities, a very common situation in Austria at that time. The declaration of the father is added in these cases.
"Namensträger" is somebody who acts as a proxy for somebody who cannot write.]
