16570 Translation - Yiddish

9/12/2010 7:41 PM I'm pretty sure that the last (leftmost) Yiddish word is Fink, a family surname. But not only do I not understand the preceding words, I can't figure out what half of the letters are in this handwriting! This is from the back of an old family photograph in a cousin's collection, and we're trying to identify the people.

"Leonar" (rubber-stamped word) was the name of a German photo supply company that eventually became part of Agfa. So I'm guessing that this note was written in the Old Country, which in my family's case would be Lithuania or Belarus.

Thank you in advance for your help, and a Happy New Year to you.

Yours sincerely,
Lisa Grayson

9/12/2010 7:41 PM This is a section of a Family tree written partly in Hebrew and partly in German.
Can someone read the name encircled in blue?
The other names appear to be:
Lotti, Josef, Bernard, Ignaz, Moritz, the unknown one, Ahron.
Their surname is all LENGSFELD.
Please see my other ViewMate request from the same tree.
Thank you
Peter

9/12/2010 7:41 PM This is a section of a Family tree written partly in Hebrew and partly in German.
Can someone read the name encircled in blue?
The other two (German) names are WEIL and EKSTEIN.
I believe that these are the married surnames of children of the WEINER family, whose Hebrew names have been transliterated as Bone (associated with the name I cannot read), Feigele (WEIL) and Ischel (EKSTEIN).
Please see my other ViewMate request from the same tree.
Thank you
