21684 Photo Identification

2/15/2012 4:02 PM I cannot identify this woman. I know she was from my grandfather's family. I suspect it's either a divorced sister, born around 1878, his widowed mother or his grandmother who lived to 95 years old. The picture was in the collection of another sister who left Ukraine in 1903. I am most curious about her manner of dress. There are no props in this photo and it is zoomed in closer than was the norm at the turn of the twentieth century. Can anyone find any clues in this picture that would help me identify this woman?

2/15/2012 4:02 PM Line 17 indicates the immigration record of Moische Welwel GRUBIN from Minsk. The nearest relative in Minsk is listed as his father: Solomon GRUBIN. There are two words that follow his father's name. Then it says Minsk Russia. Please help me identify what the two words state. Thank you! View the post with its 4 responses

2/15/2012 4:00 PM I would appreciate a translation (or summary) of this contribution I found in the Wyszogrod Yizkor Book. It was written by Moshe (Mosze) Wolman a cousin of my late father Meir Lewin. I am hoping to learn more about Moshe and his family through the translation.

21660 Translation - German

2/12/2012 4:17 PM 1934 Letter from Benjamin Lowenstein (and wife Nettie)to his younger brother Alfred.
I still need help with the phrases set off by ?.

If you can provide alternate translations of these parts of the letter I will appreciate having other interpretations. (At the time of this letter, I believe that Benjamin, a wealthy New York City business man, was trying to convince his brother to emigrate from their ancestral home in Germany to the USA.)

"I did receive your letters ? but not by my old usual (way) and does not bring any understanding. ?
I hope you all are in good health and ? eager ? which always is the main thing, very probably you will be glad to hear from me about ? the friends. ?
? I need rest ? and have been thinking about making a trip to Jerusalem and Cairo Egypt where I have never been.
---
I will pay all the costs... ? … and the complete trip.? Do bring you ? evening dresses. I am in the hotel from March 8 to 21, 1934. ---
?Don't say anything?

2/12/2012 4:17 PM These two official documents bear the same official file number 4918. They were saved in the same folder as a handwritten letter from Benjamin Lowenstein (sent from Israel earlier in 1934). At this time, both the Alfred Loewenstein and Gustav Lorch families were considering emigration to the USA where their brother Benjamin Lowenstein was well established as a US citizen. Later, Benjamin provided Affidavits of Support for both brothers' families and many other related families also. I am seeking compose a history of our families' flight from Germany using documents like these in the family archives. A translation AND INTERPRETATION of these documents should serve as a guide to my own interpretation of many similar papers in my grandfather's files. View the post with its 1 response
