I don't require an exact translation for this. I would like to know what type of document it is, names, dates and places. Or anything else that may help me to further my research. Family names are Frydman, Geft.
Thank you

5/16/2021 1:17 PM Looks like a Ketubah (marriage contract) to me
5/16/2021 11:13 PM It's a standard marriage contract. The handwritten info contains the date and names:

On Thursday, the 18th day of the month of Tishrey, in the year 5678 [4 October 1917] in the village of Bronitz in the province of Vohlin https://www.jewishgen.org/Communities/jgcd.php?get=y&prov1900=Volhynia

Groom: Yitskhak Frydman son of Avraham of blessed memory
Bride: Gittel Geft daughter of Avraham Yitskhak

There's a comment above the stamp that says: "know the above well because he ---- " and then there's another date: Sunday, -- Tamuz, 5680 [June or July of 1920]. Brisk

I can read parts of the stamp - but am not sure what it means, and don't want to mislead you.

There are witnesses names on the bottom right, they are something like:
Mordechai Epil Halts
Heshil ---keh

[Comments]
Dashes indicate text I couldn't make out.
It's not usual to see a dated comment like that, and I wonder if this document is a copy supplied to replace the original.

The contract, given to the bride during the ceremony, is to be kept by her.
Witnesses are not family.
