7/16/2014 3:11 PM A photo taken of my beloved grandfather Isak Gottesman (also known as Jan Alexander) and family in Hodyni, Mostyska. I'm searching for Gottesman/Alexander relatives, who immigrated to Montreal after the Second World War. Also I would be grateful for information from anyone, who may have knowledge of my paternal grandfather and my great-grandparents, Serel Gottesman and Bernard Alexander from the Medyka/Stary Sambor/Chyrow areas. Thank you very much for your assistance.

34734 Photo Identification

7/16/2014 3:10 PM I'd be interested in hearing from anyone who might identify the military uniforms in this family photo. Polish Army 1920s? Or Russian Army WWI?

I am also posting an image of the Yiddish and Polish writing on the back of this image, which may help.

Thanks in advance.

34676 Translation - German

7/16/2014 3:09 PM This is the wedding registry for Moses Schmelke TENENBAUM and Rivka SCHEPPER, 1886, Galicia. My GGF Moses TENENBAUM was born and died in Galicia, and no information was passed down through the family about his origins.

I know that he was married twice. The first time to an unknown woman with whom he had a child Israel TENENBAUM. I have been told that he and his first wife divorced. His second marriage was to my GGM Beile MARGULIES. Theirs was a ritual marriage.

I have only found two Moses Tenenbaums from Tarnopol who fit the timeline of my GGF. Moses Schmelke is one of them. My goal is to accumulate enough information about him to either prove or disprove that he is my GGF.

I'm especially interested in the writing in the final column, "Notes." Thanks for taking a look!
