15094 Translation - Yiddish

4/14/2010 This postcard was sent from Detroit to my paternal grandmother Rose EINBUND in Pittsburgh in January 1914. I'd like to have the card translated from Yiddish to English.---- My Grandmother came to the US, in July of 1913, from Parichi (near Shchedrin) in the Belarus region of
Russia. ------- The card appears to be from someone named Abe ADELMAN. I don't know if he was a friend, a suitor, or a cousin of some sort. The card was sent c/o my grandmother's cousin Rubin SOLOMON [changed from ZALMANOV]. ------ Thanks for all of the great work in translating and interpreting these letters!

4/14/2010 I am putting together an Anyksciai Shtetlinks webpage and need to have this Lithuanian text translated into English. It is very relevant to my research.

It is about a 1925 cadastral map and property owners' list of Anyksciai (Aniksht in Yiddish) that was published c. 1995 by the Anyksciai town museum or visitors bureau. A landsman and JewishGenner who visited Anyksciai in 1996 mailed a photocopy to me a few years ago.

Any help you can provide with this translation will be greatly appreciated and will benefit all our Yidn with roots or ties to Anyksciai!
