Translation of the above

This happened in the city of Radom on the 15th / 27th of July in the year 1891 at ten o’clock in the morning. Dawid Zmidek appeared, an unskilled laborer from the city of Chmielnik in the county of Stopnica, in the Province of Kielce, residing temporarily in the village of Firlej in the district of Wielogóra, he is thirty two years old; in the presence of Judka Rozencwejg, an industrialist, fifty seven years old, and Majlich Rozenberg, a local synagogue attendant, fifty years old, both from the city of Radom; and he presented to us a male child, born on the 3rd/15th of April in the previous year, to his wife Sura Gitel nèe Wolberg, thirty years old.

At the circumcision this child was given the names Kelman Josek. The delay in registering this birth is due to the father’s fault, he did not present his marriage certificate.

This record was read to the declarant and witnesses and it was signed by us. The father is illiterate.
