13570 Translation - Polish

9/20/2009 My friend Ena Jacobs is interested in having this document from the State Archives in Poznan (Poland) translated. In particular she's interested in knowing the name of the bank and account number to which she should send payment for the death record of her ancestor, Etty Schwab. Payment due in US dollars appears to be $38.50. View the post with its 2 responses

13574 Interpretation

9/20/2009 I need help to identify the city of birth for my great grandmother. The second line in this image is hers, from the Place of Birth column of an alien passenger manifest.

To me, it looks like it says "Russia, Smangon". Does that mean anything?

13555 Photo Identification

9/16/2009 This is the photo of Erzsebet Elefant born in 1832. She seems to be about 40 years of age in this photo.

She lived in Cigand on the far northeastern corner of Hungary by the current Slovak border.

This is a studio photo most likely to be taken in the nearest town of SA Ujhely in Zemplen Co.

Does the dress style reflect an orthodox woman in 1870?

Where photos made in 1870 in A place like Ujhely?
