I don't have anything useful to contribute, but your instructions for
downloading the originals worked for me. I also have a German Valentin
and a Michal, so your documents and translation are a welcome learning
opportunity. Some of the basic German words are familiar to me, but your
translation is much more accomplished than those basics. I hope someone
will be able to confirm your reading.

Thanks for sharing,
