The first record shown is for a male birth #28 (Col. 1b).
Periodically (generally once a month), a record was made of the total
number of male and female births and the numbering was started anew.
This record is dated January 6, 1892 (3a), Tevet 18 (3b), for a birth in
Odessa (4). The parents are Odessa meshchanin Leizor Blik and his
wife Feiga (5) and the child is a son named Ruvin (6). Under Ruvin's
name it says that he was actually born on Dec. 31, 1891 and circumcised on
Jan. 7, 1892. This is unusual but occurs sometimes, and in this case
column 3 may give the date the birth was registered.
Below it is female birth #35, also dated January 6, 1892 for a birth in
Odessa. The parents are Turkish subject Shliome Moshkovich and his
wife Frejda. The child is a daughter named Mindel.
