21020 Translation - Russian

12/11/2011 4:19 PM Page 1, of Russian Army papers belonging to (Israel) Myer Glass. I seem to remember hearing that Myer had to spend additional time in the Russian Army because his brother was a "draft dodger." Perhaps this or one of his other documents will shed some light on this.

Any help with the translation will be greatly appreciated.

20997 Translation - Yiddish

12/11/2011 4:16 PM I have posted a postcard written in 1910 either to or by Jacob WINTER who
was born 1878 in Kramsk in the Kalisz Gubernia of Poland, but was residing
at the address in Birmingham, England at the time the card was sent.

The card was written in Yiddish which unfortunately I am unable to read, and
so I would appreciate some help with the translation of as many of the words
as possible, please.
Regards,
Gareth

12/11/2011 4:16 PM Please can you provide a translation of the Russian text on these two pages from the passport of Israel Jaffe. His Hebrew name was Ezer/Aizer. The French and German pages of the passport state that he was from the town of Kupisch which today is Kupiski in Lithuania.
