The one that says Biri appears to be a district/archive copy:

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CS87-SQDC-Y?i=138&cat=256284 (Film # 007951969 image 139 of 470)

See image 134 for the "title page" marked _másolat_ "copy". The entries are chronological on each page, but there are date overlaps between pages (with different entries), which is why I think this is a centralized copy.

The one that says Czilli appears to be a different copy, possibly kept locally:

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-CSZT-XS1F?i=143&cat=254177 (Film # 007948087 image 144 of 294)

See image 137 for the "title page".

Neither one appears to be original, so there's no telling which name is correct for the bride. Both her father's and the groom's occupation is _korcsmáros_ (modernly _kocsmáros_) "taverner, innkeeper"; it's interesting that the JewishGen indexer of the Biri version used two different translations for the same word.

Dvorzsák's gazetteer (https://web.archive.org/web/20160331175726/http://www.radixhub.com/radixhub/gazetteers/1877/borsod.htm) indicates that Alsózsolcza's Jewish residents were recorded in Heő-Csaba (Hejőcsaba, now absorbed into the city of Miskolc). Miskolc of course had its own Jewish congregation.
"Szent-András" is possibly Hernádszentandrás in Abauj-Torna county, which is about 20 miles upstream from Miskolc on the Hernád river. Dvorzsák (https://kt.lib.pte.hu/cgi-bin/kt.cgi?konyvtar/kt03110501/0_0_1_pg_27.html) says Jewish residents were recorded in Szántó (Abaújszántó), while the 1892 gazetteer (http://konyvtar.ksh.hu/inc/kb_statisztika/helysegnevtar/1892/index.html) says Szikszó. (I'm wondering if the latter is a misprint: starts with Sz-, ends with -ó, in the same county...)
