26973 Translation - Hungarian

4/14/2013 4:22 PM The following letter comes from the Mayor of Zatin (Zeteny) Slovakia. My family visited this area where my Strauss family originated, last April. The area was part of Hungary and now sits in Southern Slovakia, about 10km from Kralovsky Chlmec, near the Hungarian Border. (Hungarian is still spoken in the community.) An article about our visit was published in the Winter 2012 Issue of Avotaynu. This week we received this letter from the Mayor with 50 pages of images of the old Jewish Cemetery, many of the gravestones, and townspeople cleaning the cemetery, which sits in a forested area, about a mile from the community. I assume the letter is in Hungarian but it may be written in Slovak. I do not speak either language and would appreciate if someone would provide a translation of the letter. If anyone is also interested in copies of the photos, I plan to scan the stack and make a pdf of the series. Please email me, and I will send pdf. Thank you.

26974 Translation - Other

4/14/2013 4:22 PM I would like to have this transcribed into English and to know exactly what language it is written in. I understand it was written by one of the Benjamin family to the Sassoons in the late 18th century. Both families were nerchants in India.

Thank you for any help,
Jocie

26961 Translation - Yiddish

4/14/2013 4:20 PM Part 1 from 15 Sep 1926, ? Lodz, Poland

These letters have just surfaced and could be from the same great uncles who didn't immigrate with their 2 sisters. One sister was my husband's grandmother. In a previous letter one great uncle pleaded for money to be able to immigrate.

I would be so grateful if you could translate these letters.

We do not know what happened to these great uncles and their families
Thank you so much,

26966 Translation - Yiddish

4/14/2013 4:20 PM Earlier this week, I received an electronic file from the reference librarian at YIVO. The image is of the Missing Persons section of the Daily Jewish Forward. It contains text regarding the disappearance of my great-grandfather Morris Kanitzky in 1916.

I would very much appreciate a translation of the text.

26956 Translation - Hebrew

4/14/2013 4:19 PM Found on the back of a picture of my great great grandmother, whose last name was Guttmann.

I don't know her first name. The first letter looks like a Hebrew lamed to me, though those following don't resemble (closely enough for my poor Hebrew) letters in either modern or classic script to me. Didn't know if it might be a word in German, either...just hoping that it says something, in some language, since I know so little about her.

Any help that could be given would be much appreciated--even if you just want to say "yeah, that's probably nothing."
