This is the left hand side of the first of a set of documents sent to me by the State Archive in ToruĊ„ Branch of Wloclawek in response to my request for documents related to my grandfather, Szymon Moszek Kaufman. I think some of this (particularly the column headings) may be Russian. I will also be posting the right hand side of this document. I would appreciate any help I can get in translating them.

12/2/2018 4:38 AM Sorry for the delay. Life has been unexpectedly busy. Handwriting is more difficult to decipher. A native speaker would do better:-

1st row translation of printed writing:-
Name & surname of man, woman, names of parents and mother's maiden name,date of birth, place of birth.

3rd row:- looks like Avikhuel Kaufman, father's name - difficult to decipher- Neiviteli, mother's name Estera-Bayla nee Khitel (same name as in woman's column 2nd row, looks like she married in 1886) 6 Jan 1890 in Kolo

3/12/2019 4:58 AM Many apologies for not getting back to you further on this. Started yesterday but had to leave it part completed and, when I returned, all I had written had disappeared. Grrr.

Russian handwriting v pretty but difficult to be sure of some letters, hence ? marks.

This looks like entries for people living in same dwelling/house - 52 - all Kaufmans.

First 3 entries are in Russian. Following 4 in Polish with Polish names for months. You can check translation for these via Google.

Entry 1 Estera-Bayla Kaufman, nee Khitel; parents Y?oda & Sura- Gitel, nee Pravda, dob 1856 in Kolo

Entry 2 Pessa Kaufman, crossed out of female, maybe because this is a man's name; parents Mayer Yankel & Estera-Bayla, nee Khitel, dob 1883 in Kolo

Entry 3 Avikhuel or Hikhuel Kaufman, father unknown (i.e. not what I wrote previously as a possible name) & Estera-Bayla, nee Khitel, dob 6.1.1890 in Kolo
