I would be grateful for a translation of this birth record. The columns with paternal and maternal information are of particular interest to me (I think the maternal column will provide names of mother's parents - including her mother's maiden name). I would be grateful if someone would translate all columns. Thank you.

2/14/2017 6:37 AM The date is that of the circumcision, a Saturday. The birth must have been 7 days before.
The place of the circumcision was in a "Bethhaus" = prayer house (not a bathhouse).
The father was a "Familiant", having an inheritable residence licence.
Deutschrust, Herrschaft Podersam, Saazer Kreis = Podbořanský Rohozec, Žatecký kraj
