21467 Translation - Russian

2/1/2012 4:06 PM I need a translation from Russian of the card for Zelik Selestian of Capresti, who, with his wife Khaika and son Mina, appears on a list of Jews deported to Tashkent. This is Zelik's card. Though the card suggests that Zelik survived the war, he , his wife and son are listed as victims of Holocaust in the Capresti Yizkor book. View the post with its 1 response
21459 Interpretation

2/1/2012 4:05 PM Lil Spiwak invited family and friends in Romania to sign her travel diary during her stay in the summer of 1929. Some of the names are hard to discern. I would like help getting the spellings correct. View the post with its 3 responses
21460 Translation - Hebrew

2/1/2012 4:05 PM This silver fork belonged to Baruch Spiwak, whose daughter Chava (Eva) brought it with her to the US when she emigrated from Bessarabia to New York in 1910. Can anyone interpret the engravings on the handle for me? View the post with its 2 responses
21461 Translation - Russian

2/1/2012 4:05 PM On the back of a photo postcard of a bride and groom someone has inscribed this message to Abram Spiwak, who was visiting Romania in 1929 to find family. Abram left Bessarabia in 1906 and returned only this one time, accompanied by his 16 year old daughter Lillian. I need a translation of this message, by most importantly, I need help deciphering the signature, which appears to blend alphabets. What is the name that appears to begin with a capital "A" and end with a "T"? What language is that? What is the Russian (?) name beside it? And can anyone suggest a meaning for the word "Coco" written in ink above the names? View the post with its 1 response

21514 Translation - Yiddish

1/29/2012 4:39 PM I was wondering if anybody was able and kind enough to translate this letter for me please? If not word-for-word (as it's pretty long), just a rough idea of what this letter is about and if it contains any potentially useful information (such as names, places, dates etc). I think it's written in Yiddish and would like it translated into English. Or as a second choice, Yiddish but in English letters. Kind Regards, Danielle. View the post, there are no responses

21507 Translation - Hungarian

1/29/2012 4:38 PM My grandparents filled out papers to immigrate from Ungvar, Hungary to New York, USA. I have been told that there are a few towns called Kozy, Poland and my grand-father was born in Kozy, Poland. However the border kept changing and I am trying to determine in which Kozy he was born.

If you can read this document, please advise if you know this town spelled as either Kozy, Longyelomagye or Songyelomagy or something similar.

Thank you very much.

21508 Translation - Russian

1/29/2012 4:38 PM This is the marriage record of my grandparents Lejzor Potaznik and Rojza Minkowska.

I know the names of Rojza's parents.

I am looking for the names of Lejzor's parents. I would be grateful if you could translate these names (if they are written in this document).

Many thanks.

21509 Tombstone

1/29/2012 4:38 PM I would like a good translation/interpretation of my ggf's headstone. I have translated the portions that indicate that Avraham Abba was the son of Mordechai. But after that it gets interesting. This headstone also indicates his grandfather's name. I would like some interpretation of the use of the term "magid." I know Yitzchak wasn't the name of the (famous) Magid. I guess the family was proud our magid heritage. View the post with its 2 responses
