Roughly (i.e. not literally):

It happened in [|Krynki] on 28th March 1928. The applicant came to request a copy of a marriage record of a marriage taken supposedly in Michałow in 1922. The record could not have been obtained from the books. Therefore 2 witnesses showed up

1. (handwritten): Mejer-Iser Grosman

2. (handwritten): Szlirm (?) Niszt

to testify that in May 1922 a marriage took place between:

1. (handwritten): Girsz Ateon (?), 25 years old, son of Bene and Itea and

2. (handwritten): Dwejra-Gołda Morawiec, 21 years old, daughter of Chomy Rafael and Fradla

The witnesses testified that the marriage took place in Michałów in accordance with Jewish rites. The witnesses signed under the penalty of prejury.

Applicant: Dwejra-Gołda Morawiec (signature)

Witnesses: (1) M.J. Grosman (signature) (2) Sz. Niszt.

Please let me know in case of follow-up questions (some handwritting, in particular names, is somewhat difficult to read off.

I’ve sent this off to a Polish friend.  With luck, you’ll get an answer before I do.
