This is the marriage record of my Great-grandparents Izrael and Necha FURMANOWICZ who were cousins. I would like to know the name of the city where this even took place. I already have the names of the parents so that information is not needed at this time. In the past several other people were not able to read the town /city name so I'm hoping that someone can translate it for me at this time. Thank you in advance for your effort. Best regards,

5/2/2019 5:36 PM The marriage took place and was reported in Lomza,where bride and groom both lived. While the town name is arguably written somewhat inelegantly by the clerk, there are at least two other instances of the letter likely to cause the most grief (the "zh" letter [as Lomza is pronounced 'Lumzha' more or less) in the text written the same way, and JRI-Poland confirms that 1882 Lomza Jewish marriage # 54 was for this couple.
5/3/2019 4:22 AM Marr. 54 reg. in Lomza June 23, 1882 of Izrael FURMANOWICZ, 22, son of Juszka Abramowicz (died) and Haja Sora Moszkowna, from Lomza, to Necha FURMANOWICZ, 21, dau. of Abram Moszkowicz and Szejna Herszkowicz, from Lomza
