comments:
No name, no gender, no mother.
The abbreviation H. in front of names presumably is an abbreviation of “Herr” (Mister) (not sure about this).

Segensprecher (literally benediction speeker) is usually a magician or a healer. Here it might stand for a sandek.

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