This is the birth record of my great-grandfather, after whom I am named. It indicates birth on 4/11/1877 (a week before it was submitted to the registrar), but I saw a note someplace on this site stating that it was common in those days for families to register a few children at once born within a range of a year or more, and I HAVE seen conflicting records showing that my great-grandfather (Dawid Wolf Perle, in Polish) was born in either 1876 or 1877, so I wonder if this might conclusively give the exact date of birth, including year?

Besides that, I would LOVE a complete translation of this, if possible. You never know what clues might turn up in the minutia that might aid in my genealogical exploration!

Thanks so much!

To this child was given the name of David Wolf. The present act was read (to the declarer and to the witnesses), and then undersigned.
Follow four signatures : the civil servant authenticating the act, the declarer and the witnesses
