I'm looking for English translations (with as much information as possible) of the two records on this page. They are for Markus Apfelroth; I believe the first is a belated birth record, but I don't know what the second one is, or why it mentions 1914/15. Any help is much appreciated!

We the undersigned state that, to our best knowledge and conscience, Marfus Apfelroth, the son of Hersch(?) and Tadla (?)Apfelroth, butchers in Dębica, was born in Dębica in the year 1873 (eighteen-hundred seventy-three). If necessary, we are ready to confirm the above statement by oath.

It is certified that the above testimony took place in front of the Israelite Registry Office in Dębica and that it is impossible to issue a birth certificate for Markus Apfelroth, allegedly born in Debica in 1873; also, it cannot be stated that he was entered there in the birth registers since the local birth registers for 1873 were destroyed during the Russian invasion in 1914/15.
