15142 Translation - German

4/18/2010 Trying to get a translation on the word that looks like 'Hund'-something.

Note that the 30 and Somos 2 corresponds to Esti. It was near the bottom of the page from a pretty big file, so I cropped it and laid it out together.

Hope it helps and thanks in advance! ^_^

15152 Translation - Russian

4/18/2010 This is the death certificate for my great grandfather, Jakob WEKSLER. I'm interested in the date of death, names (predeceased and survivors), home town, occupation, and cause of death.
I'm also interested in the name and title (if any) of the person (presumably a witness) whose name appears on lines 3 and 4, since that same name appears on the marriage, birth, and death certificate from Gowarczow and Konskie that I have for 1884 through 1896.
Thanks for your help.

15153 Translation - Russian

4/18/2010 This is the death certificate for Mosiek RADOSZYCKI. I assume that he is the same Mosiek RADOSZYCKI who lived in Gowarczow and was married to Cylka (RUBIN) RADOSZYCKI (which would make him my great great grandfather). I'm interested in the date of death, names (predeceased and survivors), home town, occupation, and cause of death.
Thanks for your help.

15137 Do you recognize?

4/18/2010 The woman is Betty Braun. She is listed in jewishgen records as the mother of Maximillian Leon Braun and Szymon Braun. She was known in our family as Beile Riba Braun. The older man in the photo is her father, ??? Braun. Her husband was David Richter, but he was in America in Cleveland when this photo was taken.She had planned to leave with the family when she became stricken with Typhoid while treating a neighbor and died. Maximillian later emigrated to USA and died in Cleveland as David(Leon) Richter. Szymon emigrated to Brazil in 1935. I have found my cousins in Brazil. I would appreciate if anybody else has seen this photo or recognizes the mother and her father. View the post, there are no responses
