10/5/2011 7:05 PM Joseph and Anna (Dorfman) Confeld came to America, 1885 from Kishinev, Russia (Bessarabia) and lived in the Jewish settlement Painted Woods, North Dakota (near Bismarck) in 1885.

Is this a photo (or copy of the original) of families taken at Painted Woods, ND around 1885? If so, who are any of the persons pictured?

20379 Tombstone

10/5/2011 7:05 PM I would love a translation of this stone. There were several Ida Metskys in the family and I am trying to place this one in my tree. Did she have children or not? I think this may be some verses---and I would like to know the date of death Hebrew name and father's name. Thanks! View the post with its 2 responses

20377 Translation - Yiddish

10/5/2011 7:04 PM I am requesting the translation of the Yiddish for this label of a photo of the Kartun family in Shavli, Lithuania or South Africa. The photograph is of one woman and two children.

There is also some print in the area where the postmark would be that may place the location as well (upper right). It looks like an imprint for a Shavli photographer, but I am not sure.

Thanks,
John

20366 Photo Identification

10/5/2011 6:57 PM Could someone identify the uniform this young man is wearing. Is it from a school, the military or what? Is the country Austria, Hungary, Rumania or Poland?

AN ADDITIONAL OBSERVATION

IF YOU LOOK CAREFULLY, THERE IS AN "SG" ON THE COLLAR. WHAT DO THOSE INITIALS SIGNIFY?

I have little or no information about him and doing what I can to make some sort of connection, which I know exists. Please respond privately.

20365 Interpretation

10/5/2011 6:56 PM I'm trying to figure out the family's surname. It looks like Golfan, but it's most likely not. I can't find any record of any of the children, in the chicago birth databases, using that surname. Can anyone figure it out? They are living on 109 Barber street. Thanks. - Mark

20361 Photo Identification

10/5/2011 6:55 PM There are several questions related to this photo. First, can anyone identify the uniform? Is it military, school, what? Second, I'm not certain that it was from Vienna. Perhaps Trembowla, Poland about 1906, but that's a guess. View the post with its 1 response
