Our family was excited to find the birth and death records which solved a big mystery, even without knowing what exactly they say. We would like to get this translated so we know more about our family heritage. This is a birth record. I was told the writing may be a combination of Polish and perhaps an official German script. Ruchel's family would be very appreciative if someone could please translate it.

Thank you very much if you are able to help with this.

Judy

9/24/2014 4:17 AM It is a Birth Record (in German and Polish) of:
Chaya (Chaja) Hechtenthal
Address: Jezierzany 35
Born: 14 April 1892
Date of Naming: 16 April 1892 at Jezierzany 35
Female
Illegitimate
Father: not recorded
Mother: Chasie Hausner - married, in accordance with the Jewish tradition, to Aron Hechtenthal in Jezierzany; daughter of Leiba ( merchant from Czortkow) and Chava Hausner
Witness: a teacher from Jezierzany (signature indecipherable)
Midwife: a midwife from Jezierzany (signature indecipherable)

PS.
There are several places called Jezierzany but I think this one refers to a town in the former province of Galicia, which ran along the southern border of Poland. It has an historical connection to the Austrian Empire (hence documents in German/Polish). Today it is in Ukraine, and is called Ozeryany.
Czortkow is most likely to be Chortkiv (Ukrainian: Чортків; Polish: Czortków) which is a city in Ternopil Oblast (province) in western Ukraine.
