Translation help for records from German to English

Post by FallenRose2517 » 15 Apr 2021 21:39

Could someone please help translate a birth and death record from German to English? The birth record is for Józef Cisewski (my great-uncle) born in 1890 near Czersk in Poland. However, I would like to clarify all the details of the record, specifically why Schoenberg is mentioned. The death record is for Edward Czizewski (Józef's son) who died in 1912. Any help translating the entire record would be appreciated, in particular his date of birth (age at death), place of birth, and cause of death (if stated). Thank you!

specifically why Schoenberg is mentioned.
According to birth certificate Joseph Cisewski was born on the 26th of May 1890 in Schönberg.
Certificate was recorded by registrar in Czersk on the 29th of May 1890.

Village of Schönberg was just 5km E of Czersk. It is now called Będźmierowice.

Fallenrose,

Here's the first document:

No.6
R...endorf, the 1st of March, 1912
Before the signed registrar appeared today, known by person, the worker Joseph Czizewski, resident in R..endorf, and declared that
Eduard Czizewski, 20 days old, katholic religion, resident in R.. endorf, born in R. endorf, son of the indicating person and his spouse Anastasia Czizewski, born Zawatzki,
living in the household in R... endorf of the indicating person,
deceased on 1st of march in the year 1912, at 8 a.m.

Read out, approved and signed
Signature of Joseph Czizewski
The registrar
Müller

There is no hint about the cause of death. I presume infant mortality was quite high those days.
About the place R...endorf I am unsure.

It could be Rapendorf (today Aniolowo).

Best regards
Armin
