24266 Translation - German

9/2/2012 3:42 PM There are two sub-images, each with a word (an occupation)on the left and the right. The two words appear similar in spelling, except that one has an "ht" in it and the other a "k." The word on the right is clearly "schächter": i.e. schochet or kosher butcher. The one on the left seems to read "schäker," but that simply can't be since it means teaser. It has been suggested that it is "schochet" but where is the "k" or the umlaut? Is it "schenker" (innkeeper)- more likely, perhaps,but no umlaut. "Schucker" (shoemaker) seems the most likely since the "u" has a diacritical mark over it, but I don't think it is that common a word. Any input would be appreciated.

24264 Photo Identification

9/2/2012 3:41 PM I am trying to get a best guess at the time and location of this photo. The woman was born in 1860-1862 and lived in Eastern Galicia possibly close to Bessarabia. She arrived in the US (NYC) in 1903-1906. Died 1935-1939. The woman could have been widowed in Galicia shortly before leaving for the US or in the early 1930s depending upon the specific identity of the woman. There are no identifiers on the photo. Was it taken in the old country? Can one speculate on the occasion of the photo by the clothes etc? Any thoughts are welcome. View the post, there are no responses

9/2/2012 3:38 PM I'm resending the right column of a previous submission because VM24208 asked for a better scanned copy. I can't oblige since the original was a pdf file. I hope this helps.

I am requesting for the transcribing of the text and its translation.
