4/11/2010 The man on the left is my Great-Grandfather Alexei Levitchi (spelling variation Levitski or Levitsky) He was originally from Bucovina Romania or Ukraine and spoke both Russian and Romanian. He immigrated to Canada in late 1911 or early 1912 and worked as a laborer for approximately 10 years before returning back to his home country. I am his great grandaughter from his 1st marriage. My Great-Grandmother passed away shortly after childbirth and my grandmother was raised by his family. I am trying to find any information about his life in Canada, I heard he remarried when he lived there and had a child (possibly a daughter). View the post, there are no responses

4/7/2010 This postcard was sent from Russia to my paternal grandmother Rose EINBUND in Pittsburgh in 1914 (or 1919?). My Grandmother's family came from Parichi (near Shchedrin) in the Belarus region of Russia. I'd like to have the postcard translated from Yiddish to English. (The first line appears to be in Russian. I'd like to know what that says too - if possible.) ------ Thanks for all of the great help! View the post with its 6 responses
15047 Do you recognize?

4/7/2010 This town name from a N.Y. arrival manifest is difficult to read. I know the family member was from
Kalvarija, Lithuania and the town became part of various invading countries. Does this script appear to be Kalvarija, Lithuania to the reader.

I thank you in advance for your assistance.

4/7/2010 I have submittd this list of manifest names including my great grandfather Louis Rubin's to aid in quantifying the town name and country listed for him on the manifest. Perhaps viewing other written names letter make-up may aid in reading his Manifest town name which can be viewed at an additional ViewMate image.
The original manifest was scanned from several surviving pieces.

15058 Translation - Russian

4/7/2010 This is a birth record of Szija Warszniter, 1873. I appreciate details of the father/mother - mainly the mother name. The JRI index specifies the mother as "Haja Hena Krjcman" and father "Chaim" - while from other records the mother name should be "Bela" or "Bayla Hena". I know it's bad quality - hope bright/contrast can help... Thanks ! View the post with its 1 response
15059 Translation - Hungarian

4/7/2010 There are only a few words on each postcard, so I grouped them together. The top one is dated Karcag 1947 December, and the reverse has a photo of my grandmother Ernst Iren. What are the words above it? I think the third word may be her nickname.

The second postcard is of my grandfather Scheiner Tibor and his brother. I can't make anything out on it.

4/7/2010 This is the death certificate for my great great great grandmother, Golda Radoszycka. I'm interested in names (not only the names of Golda's parents and husband, but also the witnesses, whom I think include my great grandfather Jakob Weksler and his mother), ages/dates, home town, and cause of death (if listed). Thanks for your help.

4/7/2010 Please could anyone decipher where Betty Solomons says she was born? It is reported as Hanbury on the census data on Ancestry, but on closer inspection, I don't believe this is correct. In addition, Abraham Solomons is born in Prussia - but he gives a second word as to where. Can anyone see what this is either? View the post with its 5 responses
