I am researching my ancestry. In Latvia church records from up to 19th century are in German. I have a trouble finding information on a branch of my family, I found an entry on marriage, which contains too little information to find where the person is from, there is, however, a note in it that seems to point to register of different parish or something, but I cannot figure out what it actually says. Perhaps somebody who knows German better than me can read it?

No, it is not a photo, it is a screenshot from archive's website at the largest resolution they offer.

The quality's okay, the writing is just ugly.

I believe it is written in some version of Kurrent It is a bit small, but my issue really is figuring out the word from understanding few letters. IMO it says something like Ob sehein ihresihen Proilwih No37 III/22 which makes no sense to me

I think the second and third word may say "Schein aus", but this is really hard to read and I can't make head or tail of the rest... :?

Is this just an old-fashioned handwriting or even another language?

M Jrfnin rinb Zernfihen?
Proilaile No. 37 III/22 Lerufi?

I'm afraid this makes no sense to me. :|

The rest of record is in German. Here's the whole page, you can check out the rest of handwriting (hope it doesn't require registration)
