17884 Interpretation

2/2/2011 4:07 PM I would like to know the surname of the mother on this death certificate. It is the death certificate of Regina Handgriff who died in 1910 in Philadelphia. The certificate indicates that she was born in Austria; but the family was originally from Tarnow, Poland.
I have tried looking for any name resembling Beh*n*y in the Tarnow records without success. Any suggestions as to what the name might be would be greatly appreciated!

17871 Photo Identification

2/2/2011 4:06 PM Image of this bridge found amongst precious documents and other family photos. I believe it is a bridge in Lithuania near the shtetl of Vieksniai - perhaps over the Venta River?? Does anyone recognize the bridge and/or suggest why this bridge should have been photographed from this angle. Could it be that someone special left via this bridge or 'horrors' came in over this bridge? Any insight into why a family member would preserve a picture like this will be greatly appreciated View the post with its 1 response
17872 Photo Identification

2/2/2011 4:06 PM This is my great grandfather, Fischel Greenbaum. He was a tailor in the military. We believe he was in the Poland army (or another branch). I have heard that he may have been from Krakow.

I would like to have any information on the uniform-- does anyone recognize it or see anything that might help me determine any particular branch, rank, or location??? I do not know the Polish town in which he was born or lived in, but may be able to find some military records if I can confirm this.

17468 Translation - Russian

2/2/2011 4:04 PM This is the birth record (akt 107) for Bajla SZWARC. The record is from Lowicz, Russian Empire (now Poland) and is dated 1889. I assume it is in handwritten Russian Cyrillic. I would appreciate any help in getting a full (word for word) translation of this birth record. I am working on the family of my husband's grandmother Gussie Schwartz who was born in the Lowicz area. Thank you. Barbara Evans (Mrs. Mark Menchik) of San Diego, CA View the post with its 1 response
6182 Translation - Yiddish

2/2/2011 4:04 PM The woman in the photo is my g-g-grandmother (Sarah Lakowitski). The picture was sent to her daughter, my g-grandmother. I am trying to confirm whether the man in the picture is the daughter's father or step father. I would greatly appreciate learning, for example, if there is any reference to the gentleman in the picture as "your father". Thank you. View the post with its 1 response
17824 Translation - Other

2/2/2011 4:02 PM Leizer (Eliezer) Vollman refers to Abram Spiwak as "Uncle," William, Abram's American name. I do not know why this card seems to be dated 1924, when Abram William's trip to Romania took place in 1929. Perhaps that's the date of the photo? Or the card was sent earlier?
What does this message say? Any interpretive comments are most welcome. Abram's older sister Sore married a Vollman. Perhaps this is her son and the image of Roza Perel Vollman, which follows, is his wife?

Embossed in the lower right corner is the name of a photo studio:

A Ghiser
Chisinau (Kishinev)
Does anyone have information to share about this photo studio?
