Although the image is not great, on the left side is a marriage entry for Movsha Ber Bergel and Scheina Chaja Schuster from 1872 in German language. I would like a translation of the entry. On the right side, I am told, it is in Yiddish. The German part will be sufficient unless there is something significant in the Yiddish.

12/26/2019 3:50 PM Hi,
First to tell you this is Hebrew and not Yiddish. It appears to be a record of the marriage of the two people giving the Hebrew (or Yiddish) names.

It is not entirely clear but others may see something different.

Comparing to what is in the German, it looks like the grooms father was Elias, and possibly then in Hebrew, it is Eliyahu Ber; the groom may then be Moshe David, son of Eliyahu Ber BERGEL (or BERKEL) and the last word on that line might be the town he came from.

The wife is not Shaindel Chaja, but rather Lina Chaya and that also comes out in the Hebrew. She is the daughter of Yehoshua SCHUSTER followed by another word, possibly the town and I cannot read it.

Hope thuis helps,
Madeleine
