33280 Do you recognize?

4/16/2014 7:06 PM The gentleman in the front row is my grandmother's brother. They emigrated together with another brother, Jacob, from Kishinev, Russia around 1912. After they arrived in New York, the gentleman in the photo left for Argentina. Jacob settled in Montreal and my grandmother, Ida (Chaika), stayed in New York. Their mother's name was Sheindel Milstein, also known as Jennie. All contact has been lost with the Argentinian branch of the family. I would like to locate current family members.

Thanks!

33270 Translation - German

4/16/2014 7:05 PM This is the first of two images showing the death of Zirel (Zierl, Zirl), wife of Hirsch Lewinsohn. For this image, I would like a transcription and translation of the term in the "Gewerbe" column which I hope will give me her husband's occupation. I would also like a transcription and translation of the far right column heading and the words contained there. The 1800 date appears in many documents for this family and I'd like to know what it represents. View the post with its 6 responses

4/16/2014 7:05 PM This is the second of two images showing the death of Zirel (Zierl, Zirl), wife of Hirsch Lewinsohn. For this image, I would like a transcription and translation of the heading of the far left column, which I assume to be cause of death. I'd especially like a transcription and translation of the cause of death itself. I'd also like an explanation of the 1800 date, if possible, and will be very grateful for your help.
