Information Question
Category: Translation - Polish
Family Surname: Graf
Country: Poland
Town: Jozefow Bilgoraj
Date of Image: 1934
  My grandfather, Josef Graf, was born sometime in the 1920s but was registered in the 1934 book in his town. I just visited there and found this.

The workers at the USC office read some of it to me and said it mentions a reason why it took 10 years or so to register this: "family problems".

Would you be able to translate and extract relevant information regarding the actual birthdate and any information regarding the reasons behind why the registration was delayed?

I understand it already says parts are Eliezer and Resha Lachtfeld and it mentions that Eliezer was a shoemaker.
