Appeared personally Mosiek Brener, fifty-six years of age, and Lewek Goldfarb, sixty-seven years of age, both residing here in the Town of Rawa, and testified that Pinkus Lefel, one year old, the son of the Lefels, namely, of the still living married couple Szymon and Mindla née Gordon**, both of them being traders residing in the Town of Rawa, had deceased on the third day of October of the current year, at the hour of ten in the morning. It was ascertained that he died. The present certificate was read aloud to the appearers and subsequently signed.

The following denotes Mosiek Brener: (signed)

Lewek Goldfarb (signed)

*Apparently the town referred to above is the modern-day Rawa Mazowiecka.

**It could be that the civil registrar actually meant “née Gerden” rather than “née Gordon”. The handwriting is not very legible. This would need to be verified against further records.
