I would appreciate a translation of the writing, which is from the back of a photo. This was written by a cousin of my fathers, and I don't know even his name. All I do know is that he sent us the photo from Scotland, where he was then living.

12/6/2012 12:36 PM Hello Jacqueline,

What I can decipher with certainty is a name: Abraham Alperowitz/Alperovitz. (Spelling doesn't count when translated from another language script.)

I think that it is possible that the other two words on the first line say: "foon mir". If that is correct, it means "from my".

Hope that this gives you something more with which to work....Jo
