8063 Do you recognize?

3/11/2012 4:08 PM Unidentified man probably from Makow Mazowiecki, 19th century. Who is he? Originally came from a relative of my grandfather, so he could be a CHRZAN relative, or he could be a ZYLBERSTEIN. This picture appears retouched and I do not have the original.

3/11/2012 4:07 PM I'd be truly grateful if some kind soul could give me a direct translation of this Kolski-Lewkowicz marriage certificate. This is the first half of the certificate, I have also uploaded the second half.

I believe the marriage certificate is in Russian, but it may be in Polish transliterated into Russian.

3/11/2012 4:05 PM This is a photo of my maternal grandmother who arrived in the US around 1905 so this was taken prior to that. I would like to know what is written on the back to learn where this was taken. The Misnun family was supposedly from Ukmerge but I don't know where my grandmother lived once she married my grandfather (last name was Kopolovitz and changed to Kaplow in the US). I have uploaded a companion photo of my great grandfather which has same/similar markings on the back. Thank you. View the post with its 1 response

21986 Photo Identification

3/7/2012 4:12 PM This is a photo of four possible relatives on my mother's side. It is unlabeled, and there is no printed or handwritten indication on the photo as to where or when it was taken. Ukraine is only a guess. It was found among old family photos, in the possession of my mother. So far, several of those photos have been identified as belonging to close relatives of my mother's mother (Sonya/Sophie Weprinsky), but a connection to my mother's father (Jack Birenberg) remains possible. The Birenberg family lived in Nikolaev, Ukraine. The Weprinsky family lived in Gorodishche, Ukraine. Jack and Sophie met and married in Brooklyn in 1922. If you recognize these people, or can suggest a specific time and place, please do so. View the post with its 2 responses

3/7/2012 4:11 PM I am seeking a translation of any portion of this document pertaining to the ZALOMEK family of Rajgrod, Poland. Unfortunately I'm not 100% certain of the language, but I'm assuming that it's Russian given the Cyrillic ledger format. It could however be Polish. Any help would be wonderful! Thank you!

21985 Do you recognize?

3/7/2012 4:11 PM This is a post card photo of a boy named Arthur. It was found among old family photos, possessed my mother (whose father was Jack Birenberg). So far, those photos have been identified as belonging to close relatives of my mother's mother (Sonya/Sophie Weprinsky). Both of my mother's parents left Ukraine for the New World circa 1914, and they eventually met and married in Brooklyn in 1922. The post card was produced by J. Long & Son, 51 Kingston Rd, Portsmouth. On the back is a message ostensibly from Arthur, but in an adult's hand, to "Dear Dada", asking him if he doesn't think "your poor dear Arthur...looks lovely." There is no standard mailing address (it's "To my Darling Dada from his sonny Arthur"). There is nobody named Arthur known to be a relative of my mother, nor is there any known connection of her parents or their families to England, where Portsmouth and this photographer were located.

21977 Photo Identification

3/7/2012 4:10 PM This photo was one of two photos in the possession of a cousin of my grandmothers. We think it maybe Sara Esther Altman (Kranowitz), my great-grandmother's sister from Belitsa, Russia (now Belarus). She bears a resemblance to the Kranowitz family. The elders in my family believe we had photos of her in our possession and this may be one but this photo is not labeled and we can not be sure. Sara Esther was born around 1901. She eventually married a man by the last name of Altman and moved to a nearby town where they owned a store. I do not know the name of the town or type of store. They had a child, it may have been his child from a previous marriage. Sara Esther, her husband and the child all perished in the holocaust. I would love with this photo. Any clues on dating the photo would be helpful. Also if anyone can identify this young woman, it would be extremely helpful! View the post, there are no responses
21978 Photo Identification

3/7/2012 4:10 PM This is the second of two photos I think maybe of Sara Esther Altman (Kranowitz). In the first photo I posted, it looks the same woman but younger. I know very little about Sara Esther, except she was born in Belitsa around 1901 and eventually married a man name Altman and moved to a nearby town where they had some kind of store. They also had a child (it maybe his from a previous marriage). All three perished in the holocaust, but I do not know the details of how or where. She was my great-grandmother's youngest sister. This photos is not labeled, but looks like it could be of Sara Esther. (Both from family resemblance and a description we have of her looks). I would love help with any information about this photo, dating the photo and possibly identifying the woman and child in the photo. View the post with its 1 response
21980 Translation - Russian

3/7/2012 4:10 PM I know what this old promissory note contains, but would like to have the signer's name transliterated and phonetically translated.

I know that immigrants followed no particular rules when they adopted American versions of their Old Country names, but is the signer's surname phonetically akin to "Eisenberg" in English? I cannot read his given name at all.
Thank you for any assistance.
