13749 Do you recognize?

10/25/2009 Can anyone identify the People in the picture?
To my best knowledge the picture is of Gersshon Wosk - cohen, his wife, sons and daughters in low.
Gershon Wosk was born circa 1892 in preznitsh (Poland), immigrated to the U.S. circa 1913 and apparently lived in Philadelphia.
Contact with him lost in the early 50's.

13792 Interpretation

10/25/2009 This "family tree" was prepared by a family member in Israel. I can't figure out who is who! In the middle of the page "Etul Henri Sterun" means "Ethel Berman who married Henry Stern". But I can't interpret the document; Can anyone make heads or tails of how to interpret this "tree"? View the post with its 2 responses
13793 Do you recognize?

10/25/2009 This is a photo of the Shapira family taken probably about 1930. Parents were David and Rivka (Rebecca) Shapiro(a) who are in the photo. The family lived in Chmielnik in the 1890ís, then Vinnytsya (Vinnitsa) within the next 10 years. Chaike (Ida) Shapiro Andelman was the oldest sibling in this family and came to Chicago in 1913. Her parents, David and Rivka emigrated to Chicago sometime in the 1930ís. The rest of the family is possibly located in Kiev now. I am looking for family members.

10/25/2009 Looking for information about the uniform or more. We know who is in the picture, but hope to find out something more about the uniform or possibly where he might have been stationed. The back of the photo (also shown) apparently might have more clues to help. Any information would be appreciated. Thank you.
