23115 Translation - German

6/6/2012 4:36 PM Can someone please translate the back of this picture for me? It has a hole punched into each corner. The front is a picture of a woman with a raised seal in the lower right corner. What would this have been used for?
Please let me know if it's not clear enough. I can email a scanned image to you.
Thank you!

23110 Translation - Hebrew

6/6/2012 4:35 PM I need a translation of the handwritten comment on the bottom of this early 20th century Yahrzeit reminder card. Deceased probably died in 1903 since the first anniversary appears to be 9 April 1904. Is it likely that the picture is of the deceased? The line on the bottom appears to be in Yiddish. Looks like the last word is Yahrzeit but I can't decipher the rest. View the post with its 2 responses

23103 Interpretation

6/6/2012 4:34 PM This is part of a marriage license of my paternal grandmother and grandfather. Most important, I am trying to figure out what the first name and maiden name of my grandmother's mother. I think it looks like Enkar. Some other people said it looks like the name starts with Enk. Another thought it was Enfanis.

My grandmother came from a Jewish settlement Gusyatin (this was in the former Kamenetz-Podolsk region)

I am not familiar with surnames from this area so I don't have any idea what the name might be or if the two name above are even surnames
