14933 Interpretation

4/7/2010 The picture I posted in VM 14921 is very small, I uploaded the wrong one.

Have added some elements to previous caption:

I know from my father that these are an uncle, aunt and cousin of my grandfather, Boris Gerschenfeld (Hirshfeld), who remained in Russia when my grandfather emigrated to Argentina in 1925.

Can someone make out the name or surname (or part of the name or surname) handwritten below the picture? It could be in Spanish with a Russian calligraphic "twist" written by my grand-mother (my grand-father Boris' wife).

I can give you an additional clue if you request it, but I prefer not to do it right now to be sure that the very first answers are unbiased.

Thanks in advance for your help.
Best,
Ana

15023 Translation - Russian

4/4/2010 My great-grandmother was Chaja Ruchla Krawczyk (aka Paja Ruchla Krawczyk). This might be her death certificate, or it could be a different Chaja Ruchla Krawczyk altogether. Would help to identify if the certificate mentions names of spouse, parents or other relatives. Any help appreciated. View the post with its 1 response
15026 Translation - Hebrew

4/4/2010 This photo was probably taken in Israel. Front side of the photo: can you tell anything about the meaning of this photo? Back side of the photo: there are three words written in either Hebrew or Yiddish. Can you please translate them?
Thank you. Eliana.

15027 Do you recognize?

4/4/2010 I can identify three people in the photograph, but need to identify the woman on the left.

I believe she is the sister of Yetta Baltman Organek, the other adult woman in the photograph. The unknown woman's maiden name would have been Baltman.

The girl in the centre of the photo is my maternal grandmother Pearl Organek (later Ash) and the other is her sister, Mollie Organek (later Lee, and then Taylor).

Do you know the name and any other information about my great-grandmother's sister?
