Second image:

It says Purchase, Gertrude A, Barber, Apr 29, '39. It appears to be a death.

There are no specific instructions for this particular project about keying the year as seen or expanding it to 4 digits, so you would follow the General Keying Standards which say "YEARS should be entered as 4-digit years when possible. If the year on the image is only 2 digits please try to determine what century the event occurred in. There is typically information on the image that will assist you in determining if it is 2008 vs 1008. If you are unable to determine the century please key the two digit year." The date range for this project is 1790-1930, so '39 must be 1839.
