29040 Translation - Polish

9/11/2013 4:04 PM Could a very kind person please translate this marriage document for my great great grandfather, Boruch Goldfarb and my great great grandmother, Taubo Gitlo Goldsztein in 1866 in Losice. Boruch's parents were Chil Goldfarb and Besia as far asI know and I can make out these names in this document. Is this written in 'old Polish'? There is also some Hebrew writing or signature at the bottom of the document. This translation will shed light on my father's family. Thanks so much!

9/11/2013 4:03 PM Can anyone please translate this postcard written in Yiddish for me? The postcard was most likely written to my grandparents who moved from Krynki, Poland to the US between early 1900's (my grandfather) through early 1910's (my grandmother).
My grandparents names were: David Blake (Blecher) and Rose Mank (Rachel Maniches).
You can email me directly at: or though this site.

Thank you,

28937 Translation - Yiddish

9/11/2013 3:57 PM I would be very grateful for a transcription & translation of this letter. I cannot read it but presume it is written in Yiddish/Hebrew. [Confirmed to be in Yiddish]

It was written by Heinrich POPPER of Miskowitz to J. (? Joachim) ORNSTEIN in Prague, who I believe was Heinrich's son-in-law. The paper is written on stationery of M. Fischl's Söhne, a firm in Miskowitz founded by my ancestor, Markus Fischl. Markus Fischl was father-in-law of Heinrich Popper and grandfather-in-law of Joachim Ornstein. Joachim was Prokurator of the company.

Thank you for any help you can give.

28958 Do you recognize?

9/11/2013 3:56 PM My grandfather "disappeared" in November, 1945 from New Brunswick, New Jersey. It was an apparent suicide, although his body was never found. Many in my family have always suspected that he may have just chosen to disappear and begin a new life somewhere else. There are some reasons to suspect this. Does anybody remember this man suddenly "appearing" in their life in November-December, 1945? He would have been 55 years old at that time. He could have relocated anywhere, most likely in the United States - maybe New York, Pennsylvania or Michigan. This has been a family mystery that we have wanted closure to for many years. I would greatly appreciate anyone's help. Thank you very much. View the post with its 1 response
