Any assistance with this ID would be appreciated.

16159 Translation - Yiddish

8/1/2010 4:24 PM I found by chance in an old book this letter. I presume that it was written by a familymember of my late grandmother L. Intrator.
I would be very thankful if somebody can translate and tell me what it says.

16160 Translation - Russian

8/1/2010 4:24 PM The record was found in JRI indexing and purchased from LDS.It is a birth record for Golda Goldman. I believe that there are a few towns mentioned.
there is one town that my translator was unable to translate. I understand that it is the third word on the fourth line.
A complete translation would also be appreciated
but not necessary.

16157 Translation - German

8/1/2010 4:23 PM I have been trying to find this family's place of origin. This section from the Hamburg Passenger Lists includes previous residence and occupation. The first word is a town which was in "Russland," or Russia, in 1886. At various times the family claimed to be from Austria or Russia. A cousin stated he was from Moszczenica, Galicia, Poland, or Austria, so perhaps the town on the manifest is nearby. With changing borders, the town could have been in any of these countries.

Since I know the correct occupation, translating that word would help ensure that this is the right family. I have seen the second word transcribed as "handler," the German word for dealer, probably some sort of merchant. The last three letters are obviously "ler," but I do not believe the word is handler.

To view the whole manifest page for handwriting comparison, you can look up David Korn, ship Taormina, departed Hamburg on July 14, 1886, or send me your address and I will email it to you.

16148 Interpretation

8/1/2010 4:22 PM This Certificate of Arrival clearly states that Meyer LEVINE (who later changed his first name to Jacob) arrived in New York on 16 Mar 1909 on board the SS Ryndam. I've used Steve Morse's Ellis Island Ship Lists tool (http://stevemorse.org/ellis/boat.html) to review the Ryndam's passenger manifest multiple times and have never found anyone named Meyer LEVINE (or anything close to that) there. Any suggestions? Thanks. View the post with its 2 responses
