4/6/2019 10:22 PM Hi,I can't help with the Russian and the Hebrew is unusually difficult to decipher. Having someone translate the Russian half would clarify a lot, also a picture with more of the document might help to give more context and clarify the unusual handwriting.

What I think I can tell you is that this is a record of a marriage. The groom is the son of Alter or possibly Walter Geisman. The bride is Bella or Baila the daughter of Yitzchok Fiksman or Foxman in Kishinev. Witnesses are Shlomo Chasolev and Sh. Auerbach.

There is more writing regarding the groom's name that just doesn't make sense to me and I don't want to guess at it. I am very intrigued and hope someone else can shed more light on this for you.

"Previously unmarried named Zeev." I'd go with Alter as the father's given name.

These docoument usually say where the person originates, or belongs. The place name looks like Khol or Khul and is most probably this place, in Moldova, 82 miles SSW of Chişinău (Kishinev):
