5/9/2012 7:39 PM Good morning everybody,
I would like to share this photo in order to obtain more information about my greatgrandfather Wolf GRAUZAM (man on left).
The only detail I know that this photo was taken in Afrika ; indeed, it is mentionned at the back of this photo. We can observe on this photo a bow showing my great grand father.
Wolf was born in 1896, and if he was drafted in polish army at 18 years old ( I don't know at what age they were drafted) this photo must be taken in 1914. I have another photo of Wolf in the army and he seemed older.
I don't know who the other persons are in this photo
Please help me to find out who were they ?

5/9/2012 7:33 PM I am trying to find out my relative's parent's names. This is the birth certificate for Israel (Fishel) Grossman. Can somebody please tell me the parent's names and witness names, and an exact date if there is one?
I apologize if this is Polish, but I don't read either one, so I'm not 100% sure which language this is.

5/9/2012 7:27 PM This document was found recently in the attic of a house of a neighbor of my great grandfather.

Can anybody please translate any of the polish text that may be of interest.

The names that are mentioned are most properly Isak Schachner (my great grandfather) or his son Solomon Schachner (my great uncle).

Many Thanks

5/9/2012 7:22 PM I believe that this may be the marriage record of Sarah Listkow and Moses Len in 1869.
I would be grateful for a translation that gives me at least an understanding of the events, names, dates, places and other information about the people mentioned(such as about occupations or addresses)

5/9/2012 7:21 PM Who are they - the old man and the boy with his hand on the old man's shoulder? Name of photographer and place where picture was taken? Does any thing in photo give clues as to where and when it taken? In other words, I know nothing except that the photo was in my mother's collection of unmarked pictures.
