ViewMate translation request - German or Polish (Uncertain) #galicia

Steve Jaron
 

Shalom all,

I have posted a birth record for my great grandmother's brother Israel
Wolf Tillinger that I was hoping someone could help me with. I am
trying to find out what sections 6, 8, 9, 10, and 11 say in his birth
record. I am fairly certain it is in German but I am having trouble so it
might be Polish.
