This is a fragment of a salutation on the back of a photo of an older and younger sister, possibly taken in Europe (Poland) in the 1930s. Hoping there is a name to determine the identity of these girls and their possible relationship to my grandmother, Rose Kelman in the U.S.
Part of it may be covered by the glue and paper of the photo album from which it was removed. Whatever information proved would be helpful.
Thank you,
Mady Land

This is my educated guess....

On line 1, one of the names might be Hindale (little Hinda).

On line 3, one of the names might be Feigele/Feygele (little Feige). Sometimes this name became Birdie in the US.

Hope that this gives you another clue with which to work.....Jo

One is called Hindale and one is called Feigale.
