This one is a bit tricky. This may or may not be a marriage record of a pair of great-great-grandparents. I'm trying to put some pieces together and so really need a full translation of this, please, so that I can uncover as many clues as possible.

For those interested in why I think these may be my g-g-grandparents:

If I'm right, then my great-grandmother was their daughter, and I know almost nothing about her family, and her birth and marriage records seem to have been destroyed along with other Dlugosiodlo-area Jewish records, so I'm unable to get her parents' names that way. But her Cleveland headstone shows her father's Hebrew name has Tzvi Chayim, and her son's--my grandfather's--marriage certificate says that her maiden name had been Kowadlow. So that seems to fit with this groom's name, and I had estimated my great-grandmother's birth as being this particular year. (Now, the marriage certificate of another of her son's identifies her maiden name as Kordoval! Ugh.)

Bride's parents: Eli and Sura Ickavli (probably her patriarchal name - her father was Icek/Izak). Also from Kalushin.

9/5/2016 2:10 PM I also just wanted to say that Kowadlow is really Kowad. OW is a suffix. Most phonetic records for Kowad are from Grodno, then Sieldce, which were close to each other.
9/5/2016 2:16 PM Chawa Zeleniec was born in 1849 to Eli and Sura in Papki, near Wegrow. Eli's father was Lajzer and Sura's father was Icek.
