This is a nice find, from a register of population,
a "book of souls".
It lists the family of Ludwik Tonn and Berta Szteinke,
starting in Russian with double dates, then switching to Polish.
My Polish is a lot better than my Russian.
Here's somethink to get us started:
Tonn, Ludwik, parents Ludwik and Kristina geb Manke
born 25 June/ 7 July 1880 - place given, but I'm not sure what it says.
Tonn, Berta born Steinke, parents August and Susanna geb Bezler
born 28 May/9 June 1888, place given
Children, all born in Trojaczek
Elena born 26 Feb/10 Mar 1908, died 8/21 March 1912
Adela 15/28 Feb 1913
Marta 23 Feb 1918
Elza 31 July 1914
Zygmund 13 May 1916
The whole family are peasants, and protestant.
There's much more on the right-hand page - but I hope
this is enough for a starter,
