Samuel Boettcher Family - Manuscript of Birth Records for Emigration

When Samuel Boettcher, his wife Anna Maria and their children emigrated from Romania in 1898, they brought with them a record of their children's births, as proof of Romanian citizenship.  Below are scans of this old document. 
It records the family as follows:
