10/5/2011 6:56 PM I'm trying to figure out the family's surname. It looks like Golfan, but it's most likely not. I can't find any record of any of the children, in the chicago birth databases, using that surname. Can anyone figure it out? They are living on 109 Barber street. Thanks. - Mark

20361 Photo Identification

10/5/2011 6:55 PM There are several questions related to this photo. First, can anyone identify the uniform? Is it military, school, what? Second, I'm not certain that it was from Vienna. Perhaps Trembowla, Poland about 1906, but that's a guess. View the post with its 1 response

20344 Interpretation

10/2/2011 4:19 PM The picture is of the front page of the Goldhamer family bible.
1-I would like to know the word below the printed title Gedenklage. I think it is a surname starting with G, possibly a Hungarian version of Goldhamer.
2-The first 2 names are of Albert and Margaret. What names are actually written?
3-The next names are Anna, Sollie, Charlie, Edward, Herbert, William - no questions.
4-The last 8 lines have names which I would like to have interpreted.
5-The 5th name from the bottom is a repeat of the 2nd name; for Margaret.
Is anyone familiar with this family?
