2/10/2010 Just discovered these inscriptions in my mother's Hebrew-German Bible, Heilige Schrift (Leipzig, 1863). I assumed it was a secondhand copy her family had acquired somewhere along the way. Now I'm beginning to wonder whether this book was a family heirloom brought from Vienna in 1938. Unfortunately, I can't make out the German script, and scotch tape repairs make it worse. I was hoping someone might be able to decipher the inscription for me. Our maternal great-great grandparents were Raisel Ziesel Maurer and Josef Meilech Offen. There is a Zentralfriedhof cemetery record for Cacilie Offen, born about 1857,died 1930 and a Krakow Kataster Database listing for Jozef and Cacylia Offen. View the post with its 3 responses

14531 Translation - German

2/7/2010 I am trying to decipher the word under "Regina" before the words in B.Gyarmatt". It should be the profession of Michael Kraus. I know that there was a Michael Kraus who lived in Balassagyarmat at this time who was a "dayan" (assistant rabbi). Curious to know if this is what it might say. I know German, so even if you can tell me wht the letter are it is helpful. Thanks View the post with its 5 responses

14546 Photo Identification

2/7/2010 I believe this is my paternal grandmother's father - Benya Einbund / Ainbund from Parichi or nearby in Belarus. My father's mother was Rose Weiner from Pgh, PA (nee Einbund from Parichi). There are a few words on the reverse (Yiddish?) that I would like to have translated. (See Reverse - Viewmate ID 14548.) View the post, there are no responses

2/7/2010 I would like to know if this medalion still exists. My grandfather was a jeweler. According to my dad, he did not make the piece from scratch, but it was in his shop and was inscribed by him according to whomever purchased it for the purpose as inscribed. It is 14 K Gold and according to my father there were three such medals that may have had eith his initials carved on it or brothers or sisters. My grandfather Theodore Greenberg died in 1970 and I never knew him. View the post, there are no responses

2/7/2010 I'd like to have these few (Yiddish?) words translated. This is the back of a photo of (I believe) my paternal grandmother's father - Benya Einbund / Ainbund from Parichi or nearby in Belarus. (See pic -Viewmate ID 14546.)
It looks like the date 1924 on the left side. (Photo is probably older.) The 2nd line from the bottom on the right seems to start (in Eng?) "Goril" (for Gorelik?) or "Gomel" (the Province?).

2/7/2010 In addition to translating the note on the back of the photo, what do you think the numbers mean? Is it a date, possibly Feb. 15, 1926? Thank you. See also the archived VM 14423 at http://www.jewishgen.org/viewmate/responselist.asp?showmaster=1&viewmateid=14423, which was written on the back of a different girl's photo but appears to be in the same handwriting.
