I have uploaded four pages from the Belgium Police Immigrant files. All are in French. I would greatly appreciate a translation, or at least an extraction of the information.
Thanks,

39556 Do you recognize?

5/20/2015 4:18 PM On May 17, 2015, in Los Angeles' "Celebrate Israel" event, I discovered and bought a 1918 publication of a little 85-page prayer book for Jewish US service men.

In it I found this had belonged to Pvt. Frank RUBIN. In the back was the information about the date of death of his brother and soldier, Samuel RUBIN, together with this newspaper clipping of Samuel's obituary.

How it came to be in LA from someone in Ohio is puzzling. Also, perhaps someone who is related would like knowing this. For my interest, I'm curious to know where the family came from in Russia and whether the family name might have been something else, possibly Rubacha. I have tried researching myself but have not found out anything in the latter. (Family seems to have come to the USA around 1891; Frank was born in Russia; Samuel in Ohio.)

So is anyone out there related or know more information?
Thanks,
Madeleine

39557 Translation - Russian

5/20/2015 4:18 PM I am interested in learning the 'correct' spelling of the groom's mother's maiden name. Not sure why but there seems to be multiple spellings in English and perhaps as a result, I am not able to locate information about her in JRI-Poland or Ancestry.com. I am hoping that someone can translate it and/or explain why different translators would spell it differently.

Thank you.

39483 Do you recognize?

5/20/2015 4:15 PM I am researching the Konigsberg family from Tarnogrod, Poland.

I am seeking information on Mates Konigsberg, born in Tarnogrod about 1902. He was living in Gdansk in the late 1920's and 1930's. I believe he was married but don't know if he had children. I shall add a photo of his wife.

My mother, Feige Malke Konigsberg Glicklich, who was his sister, last saw him in Berlin on her way to America in 1933.
This is a photo of a group, possibly studying the Torah, in Gdansk, taken about the early 1930's. #4 is Boroch Truk. # 2 & 3 are sons of Mates' cousin, Pinchas

I found Mates' name on a Dutch Police List. I believe he attempted to emigrate to Holland.
I'd appreciate any information? Did he have children? What was his wife's name? Did anyone survive the war?
