26732 Photo Identification

3/24/2013 4:37 PM This is my grandmother Maria Franziska Carolina Schramek, nee Decker (Stern) from Vienna, who was 24 at the time of this photograph. I wondered if this could be her parents or more likely other relations in Hungary. Her grandmother (Altstaedter) wsa from Uzhok but I think the Ukraine less likely. So anyone's thoughts about nationality first will help me to identify which relatives they could be. View the post, there are no responses
26733 Interpretation

3/24/2013 4:37 PM This is part of a passenger manifest from 1913. I need to know the surname of Sarah P..... indicated by the arrow.
The person arriving was Rivka Silberstein, a widow from Makow, her age given as 60, she was actually 79. Her married name was Fischer, I believe, and this Sarah was her mother. Although the writing looks clear, this name is not.

3/24/2013 4:37 PM The cemetery plot numbers don't seem to match any records, probably because she is a child? View the post with its 2 responses

26726 Translation - Polish

3/24/2013 4:35 PM I need to understand the child's given name entries for birth records 4932 and 4937. These do not seem to be names, so I guess that the word is a status, like stillborn or unnamed, but I do not recognize it.

Please enter the meaning of this word if you recognize it.

26721 Translation - Russian

3/24/2013 4:34 PM This is from a Hamburg 1883 passenger list.

Can someone read/interpert the second surname which is Eva NATHAN. What do the three words in the middle say/mean for this woman? Do you think she is traveling with the family listed above?

26722 Tombstone

3/24/2013 4:34 PM I'd appreciate translation of the complete Hebrew inscription for both Rabbi Saul and Jennie Rubins. Unfortunately the top edge of the monument was cut off in the photograph I received so the ViewMate image reflects what I have. View the post with its 3 responses

3/24/2013 4:33 PM These are images from birth records for my Grandfather (the two on the right) and his sister. I am particularly interested in learning my Great Grandfather, Marcus's occupation (it appears there are two). I also would like to know the names of my Great Grandmother, Neche Biener's parents.

26720 Do you recognize?

3/24/2013 4:33 PM This woman resembles my grandmother. My grandmother's two sisters 'disappeared' during the Holocaust. I would like to know if this woman is one of my grandmother's lost sisters. Grandmother's maiden name was Florence Segerman (Zegerman in Bialystok). The sisters had children. Could one or more of these kids be this woman's child? Any information is appreciated. Particularly, names and date. The only identifying info on this photo is "Kindergarten in Zambrow" I believe Zambrow is very near to Bialystok. Was my grandmother's sister the kindergarten teacher?
