2/23/2011 4:16 PM This is page three of a four-page letter that I believe was sent to my paternal grandmother Rose EINBUND in Pittsburgh around 1947. It may be from her brother - or step-brother - R.L. Ainbund, in Russia. I'd be very grateful if anyone can offer a translation of the letter from Yiddish to English. ------- Thank You!!

2/23/2011 4:16 PM The name Bauminger is handwritten at the bottom of this photo. Does anyone recognize who this might be? since it's 1947, I'm guessing it could be Germany or maybe Israel. View the post with its 1 response

18094 Translation - Russian

2/23/2011 4:15 PM I have no idea what this is or says. I think it is one scrap of paper I have from my grandmother's half-sister, although she was only a few years old at the date 1919 that appears on the document so presumably it relates to her parents (father Zelm) or other relatives. Any help would be very much appreciated. View the post with its 1 response
18091 Tombstone

2/23/2011 4:15 PM This is the gravestone of my great great grandfather Hyman (Hatskel) Diamond. I would like a translation of the Hebrew to ascertain if there is additional information to what I already have.

Hatskel was born in Akmene, Lithuania in 1839.

18092 Do you recognize?

2/23/2011 4:15 PM I am looking for the family of Catalina Kohan (nee Duvinsky) and Peisah Kohan.
Catalina was born in Ukraine. She was the oldest of 8 children. Her parents were Isajas(Evsej) Dubinsky and Sima Bradkyn.
Catalina (born Gittl) married Peisah and left from Fastov Ukraine, around 1918 when her mother died of typhus.
Catalina and Peisah had two children in Argentina...a boy and a girl, whose names I do not know unfortunately.

Catalina died in 1965 in Villa Ballester part of Buenos Aires. She was a Widow at that time (I have the death certificate). Catalina is buried at La Tablada cemetery.

I am desperately looking for Catalina's children/grandchildren, to reunite our family!
Catalina was my great-grandmother's sister.

If you recognize this picture (I have a few others if you need them), please contact me!!

Thank you so much!
Julia
