Leffel and Goldberg Records from Poland

These records may be relevant to the JRI-Poland Records for the ancestors of Razel Necha Goldberg, my g-grandmother.

I posted the images on JewishGen's ViewMate and requested translations. There was a delay in posting since I did not complete all the steps. I should get a notice that the images are available so that I can post my request with a link to the images.

*Apparently the town referred to above is the modern-day Rawa Mazowiecka.
