I am writing to ask if anyone can translate for me the occupation of
Israel PACHT that is stated on the birth record of his daughter Rachel,
on the attached page from the birth register. Rachel's entry
is the first on the page.
I would also greatly appreciate a translation of the father's occupation
for the second entry on the page (pertaining to Abraham PISTINER, father
of Chana Feige), since this is the occupation given for Israel PECHT on
earlier birth records in the same register. The word reoccurs in
the third entry from the bottom of the page, as the occupation of Sara’s
father Abraham LÖF.
In case this helps with deciphering, the records are in German and from
the Kimpolung 1859-1877 birth register. Kimpolung (now Campulung
Moldovenesc, Romania) was a village in the mountainous south western part
of the Austrian crown land known as the Bukovina.
Many thanks in advance for any help you can provide!
I read the record as
