According to the JRI-Poland index, this is an 1879 birth record which I hope someone can translate (Names, Dates, Locations, Occupations, etc.). The birth was registered in Bursztyn which was in the Galician province of the Austro-Hungarian Empire at that time.

Thank you for your help.

1. 276
2. 21 Dec. [1]879 Sarnki Dolne [house number] 1
3. 22 Dec. [1]879 Sarnki Dolne [house number] 1
4. Schaffer Jenty
5. female
6. unehelich [= illegitimate]
7. Israel Szechter Akerman [= farmer or field worker] in Sarnki Dolne
8. Malke Szaffer dienst [probably Dienstmagd = maid] in Sarnke, daughter of Jankel Charne Szaffer Propinator [= owner of a liquor licence] in Sarnki Dolne
9. Moses Epstein, Diener = servant in Sarnki Dolne
11. Malanka Baczynska in Sarnki Dolne

Notes:
Sarnki Dolne is probably today's Podiliya in Iwano-Frankiwsk Oblast, Halytsch Rayon.
Most Jewish births in Galicia and Bokovina were deemed illegitimate beause the parents' marriage had not been registered with the civil authorities. This is why the child bears the surname of the mother.
