3. 29 July [1]893, Kleine Synagoge - Small Synagogue
4. Malie, female
5. illegitimate

12. Bekenne daß ich der Vater dieses Kindes sei H. Hersch Leib Seidenwerk Namensfertiger und Zeuge Chaim Jakobi
= I declare to be the father of this child, Hersch Leib Seidenwerk, Namensfertiger and witness Chaim Jakobi
Die ELtern dieses Kindes haben in Z[??] am 7/1 1916 gesetzlich geheiratet, laut Trauungsbuch V Blatt 108 [??] 136 - The parents of this child have been legally married in Z[??] on 1 Jan. 1916, acccording to the marriage book V sheet 108 [entry?] 136.

As it is the case with most Jewish births in Galicia, the birth is deemed illegitimate if the marriage of the parents has not been registered with the civil authorities.
The abbreviation H. in front of names presumably is an abbreviation of “Herr” (Mister) (not sure about this).

Synagogensprecher (literally synagogue speaker)

“Namensfertiger” is a person signing on behalf of a person who is illiterate or only literate in Hebrew writing.
