18024 Translation - Yiddish

2/16/2011 4:12 PM This is the writing on the back of a postcard.
There is the English, saying "Papa's (something) Aunt from 1932." We'd be so grateful for your help with the Yiddish.
If you could let us know the translation as it corresponds to each line of the postcard, that would be very much appreciated.

PS Thanks to Y's initial translation, this is fitting together with other information we have from family oral history and a photo of a tombstone that you all translated for me last week: 17998

With the translation, we now know that the tombstone commemorates the death of the "maid" or "virgin" Chaya Rivka Tsitselsky, who was "murdered defending her honor." It seems like this postcard is what was sent from Lithuania to the US to notify the US family of this death?? PLease let us know if you can glean any more information from the postcard and/or if there are any words which are too hard to read or confusing, email me: sarosenthall@msn.com

18014 Interpretation

2/16/2011 4:11 PM This is a photo of my Great Grandfather, Chaim Troyansky and his first wife Sophie. It was taken in Ukraine and I would like to know if anyone can tell me by the style of clothing the approximate year in which it might have been taken. I know that the oldest son was born c.1853-1857 and I think (but am not sure) if this was the 1860's. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
Very Sincerely,
Lynn Troyansky Arroyo

2/16/2011 4:10 PM The gentleman above is my great uncle Mechel Bychok. He served and was killed while in the Russian military. I think that he may be wearing a military issued coat. If anyone could tell me anything more specific about the uniform that he is wearing it would be most appreciated. View the post with its 2 responses
