I have 5 pages of birth records (indices?) which should translate to the 1803 Hamburg, Germany birth records. My direct ancestor was born there in 1803. His name was Joel Hirsch Koppel. I believe his father's name was Hirsch bar Koppel. Can you find the line where his name appears? Is this his birth record or an index to it? Can you translate? Please look also at the other pages.
