This article was printed in NY when my grandparents arrived after WWI. There was a separate story that was printed in an English language newspaper the same week. I would be interested in a full translation to see if the content of the two articles is the same or how it may differ.

Thank you.

2/25/2013 1:59 AM This is in German, and furthermore, in the older German print - the following link will give you a sense of how different it is what is used nowadays: http://www.steincollectors.org/library/articles/Translations/exprgesc.pdf

I can tell you that the heading says:
"Separated during (or throughout) the war, re-united in America".

The cutting needs a better scan - and a person who a) knows German, and b) how to read the older characters. My German and knowledge of that alphabet aren't up to it, even if the cutting were in better resolution...

I'd suggest you post it under the category "German" (instead of Yiddish) and perhaps some "genner" there will be able and willing to translate Gothic German for you. Good luck!
2/25/2013 12:28 PM I can read the title, which is what the previous poster indicated, but if you want anybody to read the text, you should try to get a scan at a higher resolution. See the FAQ of this site for instructions.
