25096 Photo Identification

12/2/2012 4:24 PM This is a photo of an oil painting that my grandfather's family brought from Germany.
According to my grandfather it was very old and the person in the portrait was unknown even when he was a child (he is 91 years old now).

It could be either from Posen(Poznan) or Kaukehmenn (kukerneese)/Tilsit/Memel Area (former east prussia). I don't know exactly.
There is some facial resemblance to our family, so the person in the portrait should be an ancestor.

I do not have details regarding the painter, the signature wasn't readable and had faded away when i last saw it. It was taken to professional restoration artists at some point 30 years ago, and they too could not identify it for certain. they did state that they believe it to be the work of a famous German painter (unfortunately no one in my family remembers the exact details).
The painting was stolen from my parents' house in 2004.
I will appreciate any kind of response.

Thank you in advance,
Tomer

25079 Translation - German

12/2/2012 4:20 PM These are records possibly associated with name changes. I would like to get a transcription and a translation. I am including several records related to the same name (Feiss) in hopes of a) making it easier to understand the boilerplate, and b) helping me understand why there are so many different records with seemingly the same name. I am submitting a second such image separately. View the post with its 4 responses
