22553 Translation - Russian

5/9/2012 7:33 PM I am trying to find out my relative's parent's names. This is the birth certificate for Israel (Fishel) Grossman. Can somebody please tell me the parent's names and witness names, and an exact date if there is one?
I apologize if this is Polish, but I don't read either one, so I'm not 100% sure which language this is.

She told me that she met the people on the photo in San Remo, Italy in the 1975's.
She also confirmed me that the man on the photo was a GRAUZAM but did not remerber his first name nor the name of his wife closed to him on the photo.

Is there anyone who can recognize them please ?

Thank you

5/9/2012 7:27 PM This document was found recently in the attic of a house of a neighbor of my great grandfather.

Can anybody please translate any of the polish text that may be of interest.

The names that are mentioned are most properly Isak Schachner (my great grandfather) or his son Solomon Schachner (my great uncle).

Many Thanks

5/9/2012 7:22 PM I believe that this may be the marriage record of Sarah Listkow and Moses Len in 1869.
I would be grateful for a translation that gives me at least an understanding of the events, names, dates, places and other information about the people mentioned(such as about occupations or addresses)

22701 Do you recognize?

5/9/2012 7:21 PM Who are they - the old man and the boy with his hand on the old man's shoulder? Name of photographer and place where picture was taken? Does any thing in photo give clues as to where and when it taken? In other words, I know nothing except that the photo was in my mother's collection of unmarked pictures.

22767 Photo Identification

5/6/2012 7:16 PM The main standing in the center of the picture is my grandfather, Joseph Freiman. The woman standing on the left, might be his mother, Retiza Sussis Frimmerman (Freiman).

I am thinking the other family may be the Sussmans. Anyone recognize the rest of these people?
