4143 Do you recognize?

6/19/2011 5:26 PM Are you related to the MINTZ family? They were farmers from Colchester, Conn., USA c. 1900. I have a whole album of beautiful photos that I'd love to share (and identify). View the post, there are no responses
818 Do you recognize?

6/19/2011 5:26 PM My grandmother, Rebeka Kowalski, is on the far right of this picture. It was taken in 1918. The girls appear to be wearing a school uniform. Do you recognize any one in the picture? The Kowalski family were part of a group of Jews evicted from Suwalki Gub., Poland during WWI. This photo was taken in the town they settled in during the war, in Mogilev Gubernia.

19237 Translation - Hebrew

6/19/2011 5:25 PM Can someone please translate into English the writing at the bottom of an old family picture? I'm assuming it's either Hebrew or Yiddish. Others have been kind enough to translate the Russian above it. View the post with its 4 responses
19245 Do you recognize?

6/19/2011 5:24 PM My father Kalman Epsztein is in this picture. He is the third in the row. It seems to be a protest against anti-semitism (there are two signs, one in English, and the other, I think in Yidish). It says: "Derision for the governments which keeps assassinating and laughs at the leaders of the jewish people who has sufferd so much". My father survived from Janowska Lager. He was born in Borczszow, Galicia in 1916. Does anyone recognize the city and when this manifest took place? Does anyone recognize anybody in the picture? View the post with its 1 response

19293 Translation - Russian

6/15/2011 6:20 PM I know that my grandfather came to the United States in 1914. I have also been told that he spent some time in Argentina and came to the United States via Japan. This document might confirm that fact. Are the official stamps on this document confirmation that my grandfather arrived in Russia in 1918? Are there any archives in Russia which would confirm that he arrived in Russia. I have not been able to find my grandfather on any ship manifests in 1918. My grandmother and an eight year old son arrived in the United States in 1922. I found them on a manifest. Could my grandfather have gone back to Russia to arrange their journey? I would like to know the port of arrival on this document and all other details. Thank you for your help. View the post with its 7 responses

19284 Photo Identification

6/15/2011 6:19 PM This photo was taken in a DP camp in Linz Austria in 1947. My late father Meir Lewin (born: Lodz 1916 died: Haifa Israel 1990) is the first on the right next to the piano. I am interested in identifying the other two men and the woman in the photo. I would also be interested if anyone can identify the person in the picture on the wall.

19283 Translation - German

6/15/2011 6:18 PM Hi,
Could someone please translate the handwritten entries in German for the Profession and Occupation columns for this household (my ggggf's) in the 1869 Census for the Kingdom of Hungary? The first line is for the head of the household...this info is the most important for me. It is followed by info for his wife, and then his children.

Much Appreciated,
