This took place in the town of Gora Kalwarija on the 23rd of April/6th of May, 1908, at 4 o'clock in the afternoon. Gersz Lejbus Mentlik, a laborer, 53 years old, residing in the town of Gora Kalwarija, appeared [before us] and in the presence of witnesses Aron Ber Nejman, 59, and Lejzer Sokolovskij, 46, both religious scholars residing in the town of Gora Kalwarija, and presented to us a male child born in Gora Kalwarija on the 16th/29th of April of this year by his legal wife Ludesa, maiden name Lis, 53 years of age. At the religious rite of circumcision, this child was given the name Elia-Gersz. This document was read through by us to the one making the declaration and to the witnesses and signed by the official, the father and witnesses.

Father H.L. Mentlik

4/28/2017 10:09 AM Note that mother's given name is Chudesa, not Ludesa; clerk wrote "Ch" in Cyrillic in a very unique way, closely resembled the "L" in her maiden name.

Note that child's given name is Elia-Peretz, "Elia-Gersz" was a typo.
