17566 Translation - Russian

1/30/2011 4:14 PM I would like as complete a translation as possible of the entire document. I am especially interested in the names and occupations of everyone mentioned in the document. Since what appears to be a sibling is registered in the same year I believe the date above is not the actual birth date. Thank you. View the post with its 4 responses

17827 Translation - Yiddish

1/26/2011 4:15 PM The young man on the upper left (with "Pop" written above) is Abram Spiwak. Beside him is a friend from the Orgeyev Farm School he attended from 1899-1903. I do not know his name, though he could be Sam Perlow, who came to Canada and then to New York and became Abram's partner in the wholesale flower business in Queens. I don't know who the handsome three women in the foreground are. On the back Abram has written, in pencil, Odessa. I wonder if anyone can identify the newspaper prominently displayed? Is it Hebrew or Yiddish? Can anyone comment on the composition of this image? These are not Abram's sisters. Nor do I see Sophie Schochetman of Odessa, his future wife, here. Abram was active in radical politics in this period. I wonder if these are friends from an activist group? View the post with its 2 responses

17822 Translation - Russian

1/26/2011 4:14 PM This is the back of a photo postcard of two women dressed in their best coats, hats and shoes. It is one of three from a set of images just found which relate to Abram Spiwak's only trip back to his native land in 1929, when he went to find his two sisters who never came to America, Sore Vollman and Dvore (married name unknown). The other two cards are in Romanian, from Abram's nephew and niece. I wonder if this card is inscribed in Russian because the women are older. See the accompanying photo.
