This is a birth record of David Mendelovits, son of Hersch Mendel Mendelovits and Roza Pollak. On the right is information about his death. I would like to know if it says the cause of death. Besides identifying Hersch as a day laborer and that they are Jewish, what else does it tell about the parents and their circumstances. Many thanks in advance.

1/27/2022 7:52 AM As far as I can understand it, the info about the father is that he was a resident of Faluszlatina (I suppose Solotvyno, Ukraine), 37 y.o., and that the mother resident of Faluszlatina, born in Fejérfalu, which would most likely be Fejérfalva, today's Ferești, Romania. Mind you, there's another larger Ferești in Romania, the one corresponding to Roza is surely the one just under 20km south of Solotvyno.
Concerning David's death's details, it would be noted in the Death Record book, 82nd entry.
Good luck
