I think the only way to solve Augustyna's birthdate puzzle is to order in the film and have a look for yourself as to what is written in the entry.
As for Edmond's birth record, I can only assume (and this from other illegitimate birth entries of have seen from the 1800's) the birth would have been recorded as 'father unknown' and Johanna Huff. It is possible that Johanna may have taken on the name Huff after her mother's remarriage.
