EDIT: I've been alerted that the majority of this text is in German, not Hungarian. I am also aware that only the first page posted. I will submit another request for German translation and attempt to upload the complete document. In the meantime, please alternately see document at the Hungarica link below.


If I've uploaded this correctly, there are 6 handwritten pages. (Had difficulty combining 6 jpgs into one.) I believe this to be a marriage contract between my great-grandparents, and would love a full translation. It may be easier to view the document here: https://archives.hungaricana.hu/en/lear/Kozjegyzoi/404418/view/?pg=0&bbox=-2107%2C-4219%2C4894%2C-129
Thank you SO much!

3/25/2021 9:38 AM the main text is in German, old Sütterlin handwriting..
4/1/2021 8:40 PM It is a financial contract drawn up by a notary, Karoly Weiser, for the marriage of the following couple:
Samuel SCHWARZ, merchant, Budapest, 8th district, Kerepesi Road 56, and Amalia STEINER, daughter of the widow of Jakab STEINER, nee Terez STEINER, 6th district, Sugarut 23. Witnessed by Miksa WEISS, merchant.
The rest is in German, a detailed agreement including sums of money, etc (I do not speak German, you have to ask someone else for this part), and signed on October 18, 1877.
The last page is the notary's receipt for his fee.
