Help With Translation

Below is a copy of my grandfather Rubin’s birth entry but need help to translate the “Anmerkung”.

Rubin was born in Zablatow in 1881. His mother was Bruche Singer. His father was Hersch Ohling. When Rubin married in 1908, he was still known as Rubin Singer. His name was changed to Rubin/Robert Oling, possibly in 1917.

I wonder if the “Anmerkung” relate to any additional family history that I can discover from the document.

I would be grateful if this segment of the document could be sent to all list members as someone might understand the language.

Thank you and very best wishes to all.

    In the head of the document there is written in German an another language: “Todt geborene Kinder” (death born children) and “Anmerkungen” (details). I wonder whether it is Jiddish in latin letters? Because there are words in the text that sound German…

    It is Polish. Some bits are illegible. It concerns a stillbirth. I do not know the meaning of the abbreviations ck and lp. Original followed by translation:

    Dzieci nieżywo urodzone

    Thank you so much, Dale, for the translation and Marion for your additional comments. Yes, I can now read that the column second from the right is headed Todt geborene Kinder.

    It is interesting that a stillbirth, possibly much later than Rubin’s birth in 1881, and also the marriage of Hersch Ohling and Bruche Singer are recorded on Rubin’s birth certificate. Thorough cross-referencing, I suppose.

    It is very good to now have from this document the marriage registration details for Hersch and Bruche. A question for Bruce and others: Do these metrical books for Sadagora still exist? If so, can I access them on-line?
