2/20/2011 4:13 PM 1) Text to the immediate left of Max Pollak's birth year of 1870
2) Are the names in the second column middle names, e.g. Gretchen (or something else) and John (or something else)? These correspond respectively with Max's wife Fanny née Leiser and Guido Pollak.
3) Does the handwritten text in the far right column beginning with Edith's year of birth 1907 and then below have any genealogical value?
Thank you!

2/20/2011 4:13 PM The wife of David Lowe Schlosser is Rosa, born Taussig. Elsewhere I have seen the name Goldshmidt associated with her, and it seems like Goldshmidt is written in the lower right hand corner. Could this be Rosa's mother's original surname? Any suggestions, or any additional translation would be appreciated concerning the text in the right-hand column. (Image taken from Prague conscription records recording application for residency.)

2/20/2011 4:11 PM I'm eager to know what these relatives who remained behind in Russia (Kornitsa/Volyn/Ukraine) were thinking and how they were surviving, but need it translated from Yiddish. I don't know who wrote it, but it's long, so the person must have had something to say. This is page 3 of 3. Thank you so much for anyone who might take the time to help!
