14089 Photo Identification

12/9/2009 This photo is of a group of people including my father. He emigrated from Grodno, Belarus to Palestine around 1920/21. I don't know whether this was taken in Grodno or Palestine however if you could look at the next Viewmate photo I have uploaded there is either Hebrew or Yiddish writing just below the picture on the left hand side. That's what I want translated if possible. View the post, there are no responses
14090 Translation - Hebrew

12/9/2009 Following on from my other ViewMate image, I have cropped the message in question. I would be so grateful if some 'forensic' scientist could help me interpret this message which is either in Hebrew or Yiddish. Thank you. View the post with its 1 response
14091 Translation - German

12/9/2009 Trying to read the occupation (beruf) on this registration card from Vienna required by the Nazis ca. 1938. I think it may say "Hilfsarbeiter," which I would translate as something like "aid worker," but need someone with better German than mine to take a look. Thanks. View the post with its 9 responses

14054 Translation - Yiddish

12/9/2009 Please, I would appreciate translation. It's the back of my father's family photo. There appears to be a phrase and also separately written words, that may help me about my father's brother and sister names, and if the woman is really Tolcy Kowalsman, my grandmother. Many thanks !!!!!!!!!! View the post with its 1 response
14082 Translation - Russian

12/9/2009 My grandfather Wolf Wald was born in Olkusz, I think in 1881. Is this 1889 record a different person or the same?

Basic information (name(s), dates, place, witnesses, etc.) would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Howard Rosen
