15558 Translation - Yiddish

6/6/2010 5:11 PM This is a letter from my late great-great-aunt Esther Tepper and her brother Jakób to their aunt Sadie Goldsmith in New York City, following the Holocaust. I believe they were writing to locate relatives, ask for financial and other help, and to share their experiences during the war. I would very much like to learn the content of the letter, particularly any family names and other unique details. View the post with its 1 response

I would very much like to learn the content of the letter, particularly any family names and other unique details. I can see that they mention Nachman Liszner, their distant cousin, who died in Israel nearly 20 years ago. From what I can tell, they were living with him at the time.

15543 Interpretation

6/6/2010 5:10 PM I am trying to identify the birthplace of my great grandmother, Fani Snekkendorf (Schneckendorf), line 2 of the census. I get the first few letters (Lomp?) but that is as far as I get. The writing underneath that is a mystery to me. I have the Hungarian Village Finder and see a few possibilities.

My g-grandfather, Bernat Grossman Line 1, was born in Som, Soros. I see the Som clearly enough but can't figure out the writing underneath.

I am also curious about the woman listed on the last line. I assume she was a boarder or live-in helper.

Any interpretations greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Paul Neuman

6/6/2010 5:00 PM Gravestone of Meir David Loewy. I know that the inscription says that he is Meir Dovid son of Yitzchok, and that his mother's name was Rochel Leah, and that he is a Levite. What else does the inscription say? Thanks! View the post with its 2 responses

15566 Do you recognize?

6/2/2010 5:36 PM This teacup has been passed down through our family for over a century. According to a piece of paper kept with the cup, the subject in the photo was Michael Czech, my great-great-grandfather. A similar cup features his wife, Rosalia Czech. He is identified on my G-Grandfather as a butcher.
I'm curious about any information I can get about how such cups were made and possibly narrow down the period in which they were made. These are obviously photos and not painted cups. How common were such cups? Was a particular tradition or event associated with the cups? Any information would be appreciated. Thanks.

15554 Photo Identification

6/2/2010 5:35 PM I know this girl's name! It's Basia Michalovitch (spelling may be a little different). But I don't know how she fits in to the Levin family of Zagare or Papile. Her message on the back of the photo is addressed to her "cousin". If she belongs to your family perhaps we can make a link. View the post, there are no responses
15555 Photo Identification

6/2/2010 5:35 PM I think this might be a photo of my great uncle Harry Levin who was born in Lithuania.

But it may not be him, although he looks very much like a Levin!

He served in the British Army during the Boer War which could have been when this photo was taken.
