29237 Photo Identification

9/25/2013 4:17 PM I was given this image of my 2nd great grandmother recently. The records for her children's immigration to the US state that her name was "Ida Horwitz" (but we believe in Lithuania it was Abrams/Abramson/Abramovich)and that she lived in Tavrig/Taurage Lithuania. I am trying to get as much information as I can from this photo. I assume Ida is in the front and that her children are in the back. The children I have names for are Louis, Jacob, Sophie, Harry, Sara and Tony although there may have been more.
Can anyone get an approximation of when the photo was taken based on clothing? and also are there clues as to whether this was taken in Lithuania or Chicago? Thank you!

29108 Translation - Yiddish

9/25/2013 4:14 PM This letter (card) was among my grandmother's possessions when she passed away a few years ago. A translation was included, which seems to have been done several decades ago. The accuracy is in question so I'd like a second opinion. I believe the pages are in the correct order in this image. View the post, there are no responses

29055 Do you recognize?

9/25/2013 4:11 PM The man second from the left is my grandfather, Israel Klein (b.Plock, Poland 1886- a dentist) and the woman to the right of him is my grandmother Miriam Blumenthal (b. Liverpool 1885), daughter of Nathan Blumenthal.

The young boy standing in front of my grandfather is my father, Norton Keene (b.Swindon 1916) and the boy with the dark striped jacket holding the cricket stumps is my father's older brother, Arthur Keene (b. Liverpool 1911).

I don't know anyone else on this photo, but I am hoping that someone out there might recognise someone.

9/25/2013 4:09 PM This is my grandfather's family.
The people sitting remained in Lithuania. They are Feige Laya Press, Uncle Weinberg, Aunt Sprinzer, a relative, a friend. I was told that the people standing are cousins who emigrated to South Africa. I would like to know their names and hopefully where they emigated. I also would like to know the approximate year this photo was taken. Thank you.
