17305 Photo Identification

11/17/2010 4:56 PM Does anyone recognize this picture found amoung my late father in law's possesions? My husband's great grandfather Salomon Oster b. 1852 and his brother, Cemach b. 1858, came from the Vilnius area in the 1880's and might first have lived in Berlin, Germany for some years as a cigar makers before they came to Norway. The family story is that at least one other brother went to the USA. Might this be a picture of the unknown brother?

Salomon married Rachel Kahn (in Vilnius?) and Cemach married one unknown in Vilnius and then a Beila (bertha) Blune Tarschys in Germany. Names used in the family are: Jacob, Elias, Clara, Sarah Fanny, Anna, Abraham, Max, Leopold, Beila, Isak, Fredrik, Alfred Aron and Jenny.

The next picture will show some writings on the backside of the picture.

17306 Photo Identification

11/17/2010 4:56 PM The backside of a picture from an album. Not much to go on, but perhaps it can help in identifiing the Unknown man with the cane in the other picture I uploaded. The receiver of the card should be my husband's great grandfather, Salomon Herman Oster.

17123 Do you recognize?

11/17/2010 4:51 PM I would like to know the names and any other information about this man and woman, who appear in many of my Grandmother Sarah Kotel's old family photos from Slavuta. Sarah married my grandfather, Louis Kisner, in Boston in 1923. We know that the man's first name is Avram and that he was Louis' nephew, as well as a good friend of Sarah's brother Usher. The woman is identified as his girlfriend in some photos, and they later married. Louis Kisner and two brothers, Joseph and Nathan, immigrated to Boston from Shepetovka; Louis arrived in 1914, and Joe had come earlier. I suspect that the man and woman in the photos were cousins.
