18517 Translation - Russian

3/30/2011 4:01 PM I'd be really grateful for a full translation of this birth certificate for my great-uncle. In particular I'd like to know Wolf Lewkowicz's place of residence, where he and his wife originated, how old they were, if there is any information about his or his wife's parents, and the names and occupations of the witnesses. Thank you. View the post with its 1 response

18522 Translation - Other

3/30/2011 4:01 PM This is a letter (or portion of a letter) that I believe was written to Zacharia Taubman in Chicago, IL. The letter may have originated in Bucharest, Romania or in Sofia, Bulgaria. I am guessing that the letter was written in Ladino. I would greatly appreciate help translating it. The only words that I am able to make out are "mazal" and "Nisim". "Nisim" may be referring to Nisim Aladjem, who I believe was a brother in-law to Zacharia Taubman. Thank you! View the post with its 1 response
18515 Tombstone

3/30/2011 4:00 PM Based on the position of this stone on the cemetary in Copenhagen, it *could* belong to Reina, dead 1791, married to Mordechai Italiander, maybe daughter of Moses Bendix Levy. However, I can only spot a few words: 1. straight line Halevi, line 5-6 maret .... v´harav Avraham. Appreciate any help View the post with its 3 responses
18509 Photo Identification

3/30/2011 4:00 PM This is a 1925 photo taken in Nova Ushitsa of the four sons of Mordecai Naiman and Gisella Weissman. Michel Naiman and Moshe Naiman are two of the sons, but I do not know names of other two sons in photo. These brothers have sister Taube Naiman Fleischer who isn’t pictured. Rose is daughter of Taube. My name is Kim Klapman Sheintal and I am married to the son of Rose Fleischer Sheintal.

18511 Interpretation

3/30/2011 4:00 PM This is from a ship's manifest. The first word is "nephew", but I can't make out the name. I'd like to know what it is. Schie/Charles Glickman and family were going to this nephew in New York City. It appears to be an unknown family member. I know virtually nothing about my great grandfather and his family, so this could be a huge breakthrough if I can learn what this name is. Thank you! View the post with its 2 responses
18512 Tombstone

3/30/2011 4:00 PM This appears to be the gravestone of Rabbi Moshe Margareten of Lipany, Slovakia. (formerly Hethars, Hungary)

Presently the translation does not show he is a Rabbi, but does suggest that he is the son of "Yitzchak Zvi".

I would appreciate it if more details can be translated. This is for my shtetlink site and I would like to find out as much about him from this stone and one other I will be uploading.

Thank you so much...Debbie :)

18508 Translation - Yiddish

3/30/2011 3:59 PM This 1925 “Russian” and “Yiddish” note was written by a cousin of Mordecai Naiman, Moishe Fleischer or Gisella Weissman. These families were from Nova Ushitsa (Russia). In 1914, Taube Naiman (the daughter of Mordecai Naiman and Gisella Weissman) got married to the son of Moishe Fleischer and moved to Vienna (Austria). This postcard was found in a box belonging to my mother-in-law Rose Fleischer Sheintal, daughter of Taube Naiman and Benzion Flesicher. My name is Kim Klapman Sheintal and I am married to the son of Rose Fleischer Sheintal.
