18458 Photo Identification

3/30/2011 3:58 PM My great grandfather Dr Geza Gaspar-Gaspari at the right sitting next to my grandmother Iboyka, her mother Anna and with my mother Magdalena as a young child. I have been told that Geza was gassed by the Nazis and I want to learn more about the circumstances of his death. I am hoping that someone might recognise the name or may be related and may know about what happened to him. View the post with its 2 responses

18501 Translation - Yiddish

3/27/2011 4:16 PM I would like a translation of the inscription on the back of this photo postcard of a mother, father, and small boy. The photo studio is in Mendoza, Argentina, where Raul Spivak settled. The card may have been sent to Chava Spiwak, Raul's sister in America. View the post with its 1 response
18502 Translation - Yiddish

3/27/2011 4:16 PM This card was found among Chava Spiwak Cohen's papers. The Spiwaks were from Orgeyev, Bessarabia, which became Romania. I would like a complete translation of the Romanian caption for the photo on the front, and the Yiddish writing on the back, the printed text as well as the message. I need to know the writer, the town, the date, anything that will help me place this card in context. View the post, there are no responses

18504 Translation - Yiddish

3/27/2011 4:16 PM I would like a full translation of the message on this photo card. The front bears the image of a woman of about 25 or 30 in a dark dress. This is from the papers of Chava Spivak Cohen, born in Orgeyev, Bessarabia, who emigrated to New York in 1910. View the post with its 1 response
18505 Translation - Yiddish

3/27/2011 4:16 PM I would like a full translation of the printed words as well as the message on this photo card. The front bears a striking image of a young woman with long black braids her hand resting on a thick scroll of some sort. Her dropped waist dress suggests that this is from the late 1920s or early 30s. This, too, was found among the papers of Chava Spiwak Cohen of Orgeyev who emigrated to New York in 1910.

18500 Do you recognize?

3/27/2011 4:15 PM Need to know the identity of the couple in front. Behind them are my father and his brother, Arthur and Murray Silverstone. It is likely the man was in the film business. Picture was taken in London in the late 1920s. View the post, there are no responses

3/27/2011 4:14 PM This is one of two birth records for Jewish families that I found in the section from 1808 (unindexed) of LDS film 1808247 from Makow Mazowieki and Krasnosielc. I'd appreciate anything you can tell me about the birth so I can try to figure out whether these people link up with my family. View the post with its 1 response

18487 Translation - German

3/27/2011 4:13 PM One of three pages. This appears to be some kind of emigration document for my relative leaving Bohemia. It mentions his brothers Eduard and Heinrich and something about an amount of money - possibly his passage? Anyway I'd like to know exactly what it is.
Thanks
