9/2/2014 7:36 AM It's in usual ketuba format, which you can find elsewhere, so i'll try only the filled-in spaces.
Monday
29th day
(month of) Elul
(year 56)83 (that is late summer 1923)
(place) Williamsburg (I think, must be the Brooklyn, NY, neighborhood)
(groom)Aharon (Aaron) son of Illegible (Bi....)
(bride) Yehudis (Judith) dtr of Mr Yaakov (Jacob)
etc.
Signed by
Eliezer zelig "the rabbi here" & Asher Naftali Levi?

That father of the groom's name bugs me. Maybe it's Boruch'l, a diminutive of Baruch (often translated as Benedict, as both words mean "blessed")?
9/2/2014 8:08 AM the pieces aren't lined up properly, and there may be a bit more underneath the top right corner piece.

the groom seems to be aharon son of mr barnet, and the bride is yehudit daughter of reb yaakov.

the place name starts with "ha-" and ends with "-urg". it definitely doesn't look like williamsburg. possibly hamburg?
9/2/2014 3:41 PM I think the place of marriage is Harrisburg, and the first witness seems to be Rabbi Eliezer Silver, the famous Rabbi of Harrisburg and Cincinatti.
