Not sure of the language. Script could be Hebrew, Yiddish, or Polish. This was recently found, and belonged to my Great Aunt. Her father, my great grandfather, was born in Sejny, Suwalki. He, and most of the family came to the US in the early 1880's. Apparently, these people are related. Hoping & praying they survived the Holocaust.
