22621 Photo Identification

4/25/2012 4:38 PM This photo was found recently, and I'm trying to figure out who this family is. On the reverse is the name and address (NYC) of my great-grandfather (Meyer Goldner) circa 1915. The family was based just north of Iasi, Romania, in the village of Savran. I have considerable information on the extended Goldner family, but less about my great-grandmother's family (the Fibish or Fybish family). I'm hoping to figure out which family this is within my extended based on the relative ages of the individuals. The photo is larger than 8.5 x 11 inches, and is mounted to a cardboard frame. I would appreciate any help to figure out...

1. What are the ages of the individuals?
2. When/where do you believe this photo was taken? I'm guessing it was from Romania and was sent to Meyer in New York around 1915, but it could be earlier.
3. Any clues about the family based on clothing, furniture, etc?

I'd appreciate any help you can provide!

22612 Tombstone

4/25/2012 4:37 PM I need help translating the Hebrew that is on the stone. View the post with its 5 responses
22613 Tombstone

4/25/2012 4:37 PM Translation of the Hebrew, please. This is the stone of my great-grandfather, Avraham Eukosiel Swoff. Maspeth Queens, but he's from Lithuania.

I see his name in Hebrew, and I see a little further down, Yehuda Leib, but I'm not sure if that's his father or great--? I'm really interested in that, because we have a Yehuda Leib but on a different branch of that tree...if it's the same Yehuda Leib, we have some tree branch juggling to do. Thanks.

22600 Translation - Hebrew

4/25/2012 4:35 PM Hi,

PAGE 1 :
This is an introduction of a book of poems written by my wife's gggg grandpa Joshua Heschel Kuttner of Lissa. Joshua was a descendant of the Maharal of Prague through is grand mother Michla and I beleive he wrote about his family in this introduction.
Thanks to a "yichus brieve" discovered last month by my wife's grandmother, we know now Joshua's direct lineage to the Maharal of Prague. It is by looking for some of those ancestor names that I came across my ancestor's book. Sometimes genealogy research brings you to some lovely unexpected paths.

Mother family branch :
Rabbi Joshua Heschel Kuttner in Lissa, Michla ?
Rabbi Shaltiel Isaacs in Peiser
Rabbi Joshua Heschel Hakohen Katz in Peiser
Rabbi Jacob Mordechai Hacohen Katz in Brody and Posen
Rabbi Napftali Hacohen Katz in Posen and Frankfurt

Father family branch :
Rabbi Joshua Heschel Kuttner in Lissa
Rabbi Aaron Kuttner in Wreschen
???? Rabbi Shalom in Zulz (Biala)

Thanks a lot

22605 Translation - German

4/25/2012 4:35 PM Page 5 of a series of 8 pages handed to my father at the end of WW II by a man in a town that his U.S. Army unit had occupied. Looking for an accurate translation to determine if these pages are of any interest to Holocaust scholars (and just to know, after all of this time, what they say).

Pages 5-8 in this series were pinned together.
