The dealer Hermann Herzmann, resident in Kempen, Jewish religion, attests that the unmarried Ernestine Jakob, ritually ??? wife of the witness?, Jewish religion, residingt with the witness in Kempen, gave birth at the residence of the witness in Kempen on 7-Nov-1877 at 8:30pm a child of the female sex who was given the name Ella.
The witness signs with three circles.

The writing is not easy to read - Ernestine is bot unmarried and the wife of Hermann Hertzmann! She must have had an unregistered religious marriage.

My grandmother was born in Kempen in the Rhineland, but this birth occurred in Kempen in Posen, now called Kepno, and now part of Poland.
