15955 Photo Identification

7/25/2010 5:29 PM This is Morrie, my grandma's first cousin and the son of my great-grandmother's sister. His last name is unknown; his mother's maiden name would have been Reznikova and her first name might have been Minnie. They were from Kirovohrad, Ukraine. He was the eldest of four children, the others being Gertrude, Helen and Joey. When their mother died of TB in the Ukraine, their father took them to New York where he remarried. I would like to find his last name and their descendants! View the post, there are no responses

23 juillet 2010:

So this birth certificate was created on 9 June 1920. But above and to the left of this document, i see a stamp with the date of 27 April 1927. Does this signify that the document was certified "a second time", later, on 27 April 1927 ?

I grouped many responses as:

May be did you have an idea ? Thanks

16091 Translation - Russian

7/21/2010 4:51 PM I am hopeful that this is the birth certificate of Abram Michalowicz known in UK as Abram Michaels and USA as Mitchell, born in Mlawa, Poland between 1865 and 1870. I am particularly looking for the names of his parents and the address of birth place. View the post with its 2 responses

16072 Do you recognize?

7/21/2010 4:48 PM This is the name of the town where our ancestor resided in Ukraine. It was found on a manifest from Germany to England. I had already submitted what looks to be the same town from a manifest from England to Boston, but the copy was not as good and no one was able to identify the town. Any help is greatly appreciated!

16075 Tombstone

7/21/2010 4:48 PM This is a fragment of a tombstone in the demolished jewish cemetery in Chumalovo now in the Ukraine. Chumalovo[formerly Somanfalva, Comolovo, Yiddish-Tchemolief] was part of Aus/Hungary state of Maramaros. Between the wars, it was Czechoslovakia. Stone is before 1941. Most residents were murdered in the Ukraine {Kamenets Podulsk massacre]. I would like a translation to English if possible. Maybe I will find the name of a family member.
