Thanks in advance.

16266 Translation - Polish

8/15/2010 4:04 PM Hi,

I believe this to be the birth of my grandmother's beloved Grandfather Sam, son of Laib and Slotkie. If so, could someone send along a translation? A birth date would be wonderful, but anything would be amazing.

Thanks so much,

16268 Translation - Yiddish

8/15/2010 4:04 PM This image is taken from a ledger for Congregation Kahal Adath Jeshurun, better known as the Eldridge Street Synagogue, on New York City's Lower East Side.

Moses FINK (b. Vilnius, 1821; d. Pittsburgh, 1900) was my g-g--grandfather. I think the ledger indicates that in 1891 his son Myer FINK (my g-grandfather) paid $35 for a synagogue seat for Moses, with help from his brother Abraham in Russia. I don't read Yiddish well, so I'm sure I'm missing a lot.

I found the ledger at the American Jewish History Museum in NYC, with help from the superb staff members (one of whom helped me figure out the gist of the ledger entry).

I would be most grateful if someone who reads Yiddish well could give me a full translation. Thank you.
