25264 Translation - Polish

12/16/2012 4:10 PM I am trying to decipher the word above "Knopf" that appears to be a first name. It looks like it starts with an "S" and maybe ends in an "er." View the post with its 4 responses

12/16/2012 4:10 PM I believe this column from the AGAD records is titled "Wedding, Supposed Wedding, Illegitimate" and the entry under it is "illegitimate" or "wedlock." But because I am always uncertain of Google Translate, I hoped someone who knows Polish could confirm. View the post with its 1 response
25266 Translation - German

12/16/2012 4:10 PM These are statements of property ownership and I need to know how the property was transferred from one person to another, especially if it was an inheritance or given to a son-in-law.
Thank you!

12/16/2012 4:10 PM This is Morris Kreekun. His name was Moshe Krikun on Ship Manifest. Seen other Krikuns changed to Cohen.
He came to USA from Kiev, Russia/Ukraine in July 1904 with wife Esther Sigoloff and family. In St.Louis, Mo by 1910. He was a Machinist for Pullman Car Co.
This tombstone is outside Detroit, Mi.
We don't know his parents names.
Would be very interested in Hebrew translation.
Many Thanks!

25259 Interpretation

12/16/2012 4:09 PM Ida, wife of Nathan Chorny is listed in this naturalisation application.
Please help me to read the name of her home town in Russia before she went to USA in 1912.
Where was it?
A family story is that she came from Mol, but I cannot find such a place. Her husband is more likely to have known, in 1920, than her descendants many years later.

They married Philadelphia in 1918. Ancestry lists her name as Manervitz. License no. 388368.

25260 Translation - Polish

12/16/2012 4:09 PM This is part 1 of a birth record of Leon Maurycy Fruchter. I believe it indicates that he was regarded as illegitimate, a common designation for Jewish children in Galicia whose parents married in an unsanctioned religious ceremony. My question is, is he designated as illegitimate? My other question involves part 2 of the birth record. View the post with its 1 response
