I'd appreciate a word-for-word translation. This is the death record (metrical listing) for Chana Treiber, daughter of Seinwel/Zeinwel Treiber. I believe that Seinwel was my father's great-great grandfather, although I'm confused about this record because it seems to be for a baby Chana, which was also the name of my father's great-grandmother (also Seinwel's daugther). Maybe the translation will shed some light on it. Regardless, other words re: locations, employment, family, etc would help me connect the dots with other records.

It's from the eastern part of Galicia, now part of Ukraine. It's from the AGAD project "Strzeliska Nowe PSA AGAD Deaths 1877-93".
