22087 Translation - Hebrew

3/18/2012 4:05 PM This is the 1933 NYC marriage certificate of my father Henry Lester to my mother Renee Heimler. I'm trying to obtain ONLY the specifc Hebrew names entered for my father (Henry Lester) & my grand-father (Leo Lester). I have no written record of my father's Hebrew name; his matzeva has no Hebrew script on it. We may have used Chaim when I was called to Torah, but I'm not really sure. My grandfather Leo was Yehuda Leibush on his own ketubah and Leibish ben Mordechi (referring to my great grandfather Morris Lester) on his metzeva. View the post with its 3 responses

22080 Translation - German

3/18/2012 4:03 PM This is a scan I received from an Archive in Germany.

I would like a translation of the words under the sender's address. It looks like "baj Pozenieer". View the post with its 3 responses

22079 Translation - German

3/18/2012 4:01 PM This is a scan sent to me by an Archive in Germany. It is believed to be the last correspondence received by my Uncle Max Ingberg from my grandfather (his father) Hirsch (Hersz) Wolf Ingberg. Although my Grandfather was originally from Poland, he spoke fluent German and lived in Germany from 1913-1938. The words on this postcard seem to be spelled with a Polish influence (ie. Majne vs. meine) which is not normal for my Grandfather. I would like as complete a translation as possible. I would also be interested in anyone's opinion as to the reason the words on this card bear these unique spellings. The reverse of the card indicates my Grandfather's address at the time to be: Panska 35 u. 7. View the post with its 9 responses
22072 Interpretation

3/18/2012 3:54 PM This is the first of two documents I am uploading; this is a birth certificate for Mary Wolf and the second on is a death certificate for Mary Wolf, an infant. Although some of the information might appear to indicate this might be two different people, I am of the belief that it is the same person. My connection is with the mother, whose maiden name matches a name in my family. I would like to hear other's opinions and also have some questions about the death certificate which I will ask in connection to that upload. View the post with its 1 response
