22742 Translation - Russian

5/6/2012 7:11 PM This four-page letter in Russian belonged to Meer Milstein of Orgeyev, Bessarabia, who emigrated to the US in 1921 with his family. It was sent from Brooklyn, where they lived in the 20s, but I don't know if it's to or from Meer or who it was sent to. I'd like a full translation with any interpretive notes volunteers might be able to add. View the post with its 1 response

22739 Photo Identification

5/6/2012 7:10 PM ARKIND, ZAUSMER - PART 1. To be viewed together with ARKIND, ZAUSMER - PART 2. Would love to have photo approximately dated (I think the lady's dress would be best clue - my hope is c.1885-1890) and "placed" (very likely to be either Warsaw [Poland] or Polangen/Palanga [Lithuania-Russia]. This depends on whether it is my great-aunt's parents or my great-uncle's. If latter then only surviving photo of my gg-parents. Oooo!). Thanks! View the post with its 1 response

5/6/2012 7:10 PM Extraordinary photo just turned up. Would have been taken in London, c.1903, but look at the clothes - especially those of the boys. The family had lived for a while in Moscow. Is this traditional Russian attire? Thanks View the post with its 1 response
